just pointing this out:
since gold bars are essentially never melted down, what difference does it make if the bar is truly solid gold or just believed to be solid gold (aside from the fraud aspect)? money only has whatever value the individual places on it.
or to put this in a metaphor: if a fraudulent gold bar is traded, unbeknownst between to people, is anyone affected?
