18 Golesbura Pegi<ter-Moil, Galesburg, III. Wed., Sept. II, 1963 -Market Price bf Silver Up In New York % By SAM DAWSON Z NEW YORK (AP)-The price of ! silver on the open market in New "York has risen to the official U.S.; "'Treasury level of $1,293 an ounce. Z There is less than an ounce of *ithat metal in the silver dollar. \ - And until now the dollar could *'>buy more than could the metalin -lit if melted down. :. The cost of getting the silver ^into a form fabricators can use Z makes it still unprofitable to melt ~down silver dollars. * Strong world demand for silver £has forced the price up in recent «months. In London Monday, the Z price rose to a new high of $1,299 *an ounce. ^ The cost of getting the silver •"<> from New York to London makes t '-it unlikely that any metal in the l.U.S. market will be exported just now. And industrial demand here is strong. Silver dealers say that the large 1" supply held by the U.S. Treasury, :*; some 1.7 billion ounces, should 2 keep the market price from going appreciably higher. 2* Part of the U.S. official hoard v is used as backing for $1 bills, although this will gradually be freed. Part of it is being used by U.S. mints to turn out much needed silver coins, of whrch ia there is a shortage due to an expanding economy and increased Z use of vending machines and turn Z stiles. * But the supply that. American silver users could tap at the new — high price is so large that deal 12 ers are betting that a price ceil ~ ing has been reached here, at ~ least for a time. * Foreign buyers, however, are so * anxious to get more of the metal Z that Handy & Harman, New York ^ fabricator and refiner, reports ^ that some are paying premiums •* over the $1,293 price reached here Monday. « World consumption has been * running well above mine output. a » Demand for silver coins has inv» creased in many other nations t. also. £ Prosperity in this and other ^ lands has boosted sales of house^ hold and other objects made of silver. But above all, the big up- Z ward push has come from indus- * try, especially electronics and 2^ makers of space age devices.
