    Bahamas Help - Please! Where's the Famous Silver Bar?

    Ahoy!

    Does anyone know the present location of the famous "Thompson-Lightbourn" 70 lbs. silver bar once on display in Nassau? Found off Gorda Cay in the 1950's, for many years it was open to public view at The Development Board.

    I understand The Development Board is no longer in business. Where is the ingot today?

    This is from (I believe) 1954 - tells the story of the find and the history of the bar:

    Again - thank you very much! I didn't think a 70# bar could be so well hidden...
