Since this is undocumented gold (meaning.. being without any official documentation from a reputable world-wide International gold seller), the only way to be sure would be for your boss to SMELT EACH BAR before any payment is made. That's the safest and best advice I can give him. Otherwise, he's a fool and will somehow be cheated!

thanks admin. but what can you say about the photos based on your knowledge, are they real? or maybe metal painted with gold?

I have no idea. Kind of looks like painted gold to me but I'm not 100% sure.

The engraving looks suspicious.  Its not smooth enough.  80% this could be fake.  Just my piece of idea.

if you enlarge the photos. you will notice chips and cracks at the edge of one of the bars enabling you to see what is beneath the golden surface. Hey wait a minute that doesn't look gold at all.
