Analyst NEW YOitK price of stiver on the open market in New York has risen to the official US Treasury level of an ounce There is less than an ounce of that metal in the silver dollar And until now the dollar could buy more than could the metalin it if melted down The cost of getting the silver formfabricators can use 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 price rose to a new high of an ounce The cost of getting the sijver from New York to London makes it unlikely that any metal in the US market will be exported just noiv And industrial demand here is strong Silver dealers say that the large supply held by the US Treasury some 17 billion ounces should keei the market price from going appreciably higher Part of the US official hoard is used as backing for bills although this will gradually be freed Part of it is being used by US mints to turn out much needed silver coins of which there is a shortage due to an ex panding economy and increased use of vending machines and turn stiles But the supply that American silver users could tap at the new high price is so large that deal 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 that Handy Harman New York fabricator and refiner reports that some are paying premiums over the price reached here Monday World consumption has been running well above mine output Demand for silver coins has in creased in many other nations also Prosperity in this and other lands ha boosted sales of house hold and other objects made of silver But above all the big up ward push has come from indus try especially electronics and inakers of space age devices Junior F Miller general is study c tnei Skymaster meets set by the state Hughes isaid anybody who knows anything about airplanes a for the Skymaster or thousands of dollars less than
