So how does one tell if his gold bars are fake or real? I got a few of these kicking around in my attic and I’m hoping they are for real. Because if we have a TEOTWAWKI event, I’m taking them down to the corner store to get a whole mess of milk and bread and I don’t want some smartass shopkeeper telling me they are fake!
drill into them - if tungstein shavings start coming out it’s fake. (That’s how Rick of the show “Pawn Stars” checked it on an episode where someone brought in a gold bar to sell. He was well aware of the old fake gold bar scam.)
