``One reason that the gold was unavailable for quick delivery could be multiple ownerships of our bars at the Fed. Given today┬┤s global fractional gold banking scheme, an (allegedly physically existing) bar in a central bank vault could have 10+ owners - and could thereby show up in 10+ central bank balance sheets as either "physical gold" or "gold claim". These two (completely different!) balance sheet items have not been properly differentiated for many decades now. We are potentially talking about non-existent physical bars at a magnitude of tens of thousands of tonnes!''
