Chovanak

The Chovanak family started mining in the early 1900’s in Helena, Montana. Bar examples exist that are believed to be from as early as 1905 and ranging as late as the early 1980’s. The most common Chovanak vintage silver bar examples are in a recognizable “picture frame” shape….and all versions are very desirable.
