    $10 Million Of Silver Bars Lying In The Street, Literally Littering The Road



    Once in a blue moon, you may find a random $20 bill lying around and feel lucky. Imagine how you’d feel if you came across $10 million in silver.That is exactly what motorists in upstate New York encountered. An armored truck was heading from Rochester to Queens, New York, when it crashed on New Years Eve. The truck slid down an embankment, leaving the silver strewn across the interstate.
    Three workers were in the truck at the time of the accident. Thankfully, no one was seriously injured, although one person was sent to the hospital with a broken leg.
    There is no word yet if all of the silver has been recovered. Considering the bars appear to be 1,000 troy ounces each, or about 70 lbs., it would be pretty difficult to walk off with any of them without drawing the attention of the heavy police presence.
    Perhaps some unscrupulous motorist grabbed a couple bars in the chaos right after the crash though. At roughly $30,000 per bar, it would be hard to fight the temptation.
    Here are a handful of pictures from the scene:

    Lucky workers that are clearing this up

    I would be willing to bet a million bars of silver that all $10 million of silver is not found.

    Tell me, how would you even be able to redeem all of that? Even if you were able to transport it.

    Melt that stuff in a couple 100 liter drums in a fire at least 1000 degrees and you have yourself molten silver that can be poured into any shape you so desire for easy transport. The idea is not to take it all but to only take a couple or a few.

    By the way. Silver is way undervalued as a commodity. I'd save those bars for when the economy tanks for the last time.
