    Bill... thanks for your kind words / respectful replies...

    Just know this about "the magnet test"...

    Not only is gold not attracted to a magnet... but neither is a slew of other metals used predominately in jewelry manufacturing.

    Like... Copper... brass...(which this appears to have the look of from photo)... aluminum... stainless... just to name the main ones.

    I think your piece has a chance due to the double markings... but I have seen this before as well.

    Hope it is real and its just some discoloration... which does happen to jewelry in the right environment... and totally possible.

    PS... its more the alloys in the gold that discolor and not the gold itself.

    Over the years I've recovered all sorts of discolored gold jewelry. A brassy or copper appearance is actually quite common, especially in low K gold or older gold items that have been in the elements for a long time. One of the freshwater lakes I frequently hunt since having moved back to Indiana produces "a lot" of discolored old gold simply due to the amount of metal trash that has deteriorated over the years and leached into the bottom. And remember too, a .385 gold ring is also .615 of some other alloy, also another reason why VDI should never be trusted when hunting gold jewelry.

    When I was traveling and detecting all the time I always carried a rechargeable Drimel tool and an assortment of buffing wheels with me just for the purpose of quick inspection and cleaning. When I returned to camp or the boat, etc., I'd pour out my recoveries and spot clean those questionable items. Just a thought for you to consider.

    bigscoop,, hi ,,,,great feedback,,I think the buffing wheel is what I need as when I hunt and recover items it’s difficult for me to see the fine print on them as I keep my reading glasses home,,and when I show my finds to my wife I always ask her what’s the verdict and when I see her smile I know it’s good,, For me win or lose on hunts is time well spent,,all the best,,Bill
