    You can buy one of the inexpensive gold testing kits which will be good for future finds also.

    Always check. Silver turns a dark gray color when oxidized as well. You can pick up an acid test kit on Amazon or Ebay for $10-$15.

    I have found a few pieces that I automatically thought were junk jewelry, till after being home and checking them, only to be surprised.

    Digging in the dirt & scooping in the water!
    In this hobby I find the following tools/equipment very handy to have:

    PM test kit
    Digital scale
    Rock Tumbler
    Ultrasonic cleaner
    Digital microscope

    Each has come in very handy along the way.

    Irishgoldhound,,thanks for stopping again and for the privilege of your time,,I put this special star in this forum hoping that all would enjoy seeing it,not thinking I should have first cleaned it,,nevertheless I don’t have a scale yet,I just spent a lot of money getting my car repaired,I would also like to get another detector,,in closing I hope that you can get a heatwave where you are that will melt some ice that perhaps will allow you a shot at finding that elusive pot of gold..

    That is the real deal baby! Congrats on the Golden Ticket! Any jeweler will weigh it free, and can help you calculate the melt value at spot that day.

    Terry Soloman,,A sincere thank you for stopping and for your advice,I don’t understand and don’t have any knowledge in selling gold items as I never done it,I think along with the weight is it also based on what K it is,,also when selling does the jeweler offer you a percentage of total market value,looking forward to see a great video hopefully soon,take care

    Terry is right, any jeweler can tell you if its genuine or not, I'd go with a precious metals test kit because who wants to go shopping these days? I have all the above mentioned tools, high powered UV lights, a diamond saw, dremel and drill press setup and a baby deer in the lawn!

    You bet Bill, 14k right now is worth just shy of $34.00 US per gram. Yes some jewellers will sell your piece of jewelry or ring on consignment possibly getting you more $$$ than selling to a gold buyer. The bad thing can be you may wait a long time for someone to buy your item from the jeweller. Higher valued jewelry with diamonds may be worth the wait. Smaller gold rings and plain gold,..myself I would just sell to a gold buyer. Right now Iím not selling any of my gold. Gold is going to go much much higher through the next decade so Iím stashing all my rings and gold. Lol.

    Smokeythecat,Thanks again for your advice,,indeed I never ever realized I should have these items,Up here not being a area where there was many historical battles like the CW, etc..my chances of getting banner finds like your fantastic finds is slim to none,,After the many many 100 mile a day driving days to work and back for me just getting out and hopefully come home with more than I left with would be rewarding,,Someday my wife and I would love to have a chance of a lifetime to find a CW relic,,Looking forward to seeing your next treasures
