    AARC hi for me I just turned 70 yrs old and the last place I’m going to be these days is in stores where people don’t follow rules,,I just did what everyone told me do test it,,I probably will just give this to my granddaughter and she can decide if she wants to keep it or cash it in and buy something for herself,,take care

    I will say this... after your cleaning it looks MUCH better and more gold like... the probability is that it is real by the look... IMO.

    Gold sinks faster in water than other common metals like iron, brass, copper or aluminum of course everyone knows this but it would be very hard to notice with the naked eye just doing it in a glass. You’d need a deep pool and a timer to prove this method.

    I'm guessing the water test would be no good at all, with lead being a great fishing weight but doesn't make it gold. HH

    This "test" would be a FAR "reach" at best... and determining a plated item or real item... useless.

    No offense.

    Irishgoldhound hi thanks for the feedback,I was just following people’s recommendation that I should get it tested,I found a site that listed several things to do and I did them,the article just stated to put the object in a bowl of water not a pool,again I am by no means a expert in gold technology.on the other hand if this was a priceless painting or some very valuable ancient object then I could understand that thorough research be done ,,in closing for me I just wanted to share a nice find. Take care

    I’m not saying it’s a test to perform as an indication of an item being “solid” gold vs plated. Nor would I even bother to try but It’s just a fact , solid gold will sink faster

    I was just trying to support your theory which is true, but on a larger scale is all. One cubic foot of iron weighs 500lbs and a cubic foot of gold weighs 1200lbs. Which one do you think would hit the ocean bottom first?

    Any other precious metal... would IMO sink at same rate... and then there is our old friend lead... which would IMO also sink at the same if not a faster rate than gold.

    Items dropped would have to be exact same shape / size as well.

    A "common" wood nail would drop faster than a gold nugget. IMO

    Gold is still almost twice as dense as lead which would still sink faster. Platinum on the other hand is twice as dense as gold which would sink faster than gold.
