Please note this is exactly the bar you will receive.

This particular bar is a lovely example. The condition is good. All of the markings are clear and there are pour lines visible too.

Alexander Westerfeld or A & W Refineries is an example of vintage hand poured bars that have gathered a cult following.

These are sometimes referred to as Alexander Westerfall (a common mis-spelling of the former president's surname,) or Aztec Sun Bars. The latter due to the distinctive makers mark on all of the bars.

A & W Refineries were based out of Mojave California and an area with a rich history of refining in the 1970s. Many of their smaller bars show distinctive patterns from asbestos gloves.

The refiner was ultimately charged with a federal indictment for trying to dump hundreds of tons of metal slag into Mexico and the corporation was later dissolved in 1991.
