Smile Steele's Silver Stash

Leonard is in fine form today. I have dabbled in silver myself and his calculation is only off by a small fraction of a percent. The actual figure is 38.09142858. (7000 grains per pound, 480 grains per troy ounce, 10,000/18 troy ounces)

This gets back to my original idea that perhaps the real purpose of this setup was to get Steele's silver stash.
