    That looks like gold. When I was kid my friend took me to his grandad's house. His granddad brought out and showed us his cool stuff. One item was a WW1 German helmet he said he took off a dead German and the other was a heavy little gold bar that I can still recall the weight to size ratio as it was very heavy for the size of it. I also remember the story he said about why he has it. He said he hid it away when FDR took us off the gold standard and he decided he was gonna keep the bar. It looked very much like what you have if memory serves me. That would have been over 50 years now since I saw that gold bar.

    TO me, It appears to be too light for its mass to be pure gold and the color is off. Could have some gold in it. Have it tested and let us know what it is?

    Cheers

    Looks like a 'Dore Bar' (possibly gold), but as others have said, you will need to have it tested.

    in all your pics, you did not post a good picture of the cut area of the bar, the "inside" of it. From the pictures you posted it looks like a gold colored iron novelty bar of some kind to me. Just like to see a pic of the inside of the bar on the cutoff end.

    And the seconds guy who posted a pic of one....it says "i have one just like yours" or something similar. Yours says 200 GM and his says 400 GM and yet yours looks bigger? kinda odd to me you would both be holding a gold bar worth between 8000 and 15000 and neither of you know that its gold....sorry to be skeptical

    If I am not mistaken didn't the Nazis hide a bunch of gold in Norway? Anyhow, I would take it to your local jeweler and have it tested and see what he/she says it is to be for certain of the assumed metal.

    We found one too!! Has anyone had theirs tested to find out what it actually is?

    Could they be Dore bars from this mine in Quebec? https://sirios.com/en/aquilon/sirios...es-bay-quebec/
