    Old silver cross found today

    Was at another old beach this morning for a couple of hours.. ...looking for the old stuff..I love old coins and old jewelry.

    I found a very thickly encrusted and tarnished cross which I had to electrolyze for quite a while before the encrustation started flaking off.

    This cross is oooooooooooold....can't even find a "sterling " or "925" marking on it...and if there is an image of Christ on it, it is just barely visible...difficult to tell.

    Tested the cross with a silver acid test and result was a strong positive.


    Also found what I had hoped to be a "V" nickel.....not this time :>(

    Here's pics

    Thanks for looking

    Wow that Cross looks like it has been in the ground for a very very long time.
    The coin came out nice for what it looked like at the start .
