    Looks like it's made of copper to me. It has that red tinge on the edges.

    Gold does not just break.

    I'll leave it to you to figure out where the opposite goes.

    If your heart is in it you will find a thousand ways to achieve your goal.
    If your heart is not in it you will find a thousand excuses.

    Ouija Board and map dowsing , one and the same. Just tape a map onto the Ouija Board and you have map dowsing.
    Works great if you like wild goose chases and snipe hunts!

    May you never take one single breath for granted.

    Drop it into concentrated sulfuric acid. Gold will clean up nice. All other metals (most) will dissolve. ╦╦C

    In the clearing stands a boxer and a fighter by his trade. And he carries the reminders of every glove that laid him out or cut him 'til he cried out, in his anger and his shame, "I am leaving . I am leaving" but the fighter still remains. The Boxer Simon and Garfunkle

    I think its called "Rolled Gold". I've found 3 all under water, they look like 18K rolled around a base like copper. Not plated.

    I’m reading rolled gold is 100 times more gold than a plated gold piece. Could it possibly have value still?

    Rolled gold or Gold filled jewelry that is marked, would be marked with its fractional count. Ie, 1/10 18kGF , or 1/40 18krg (rolled gold). It wouldn't be left with 18k ALONE. Anything marked 18k must be 18K Gold ONLY. Otherwise it's a TRAP!

    Btw, imo it could be an 18k Broach Pin... Possibly Rose Gold. Which would explain the copper color. Acid test is the only way though REALLY. If you do t have o e, just walk into your local jeweler and he or she will without a doubt confirm it for you...

    I will take this to a jeweler this week....but FYI it wasn’t too hard to break when I broke it at the bend. However it had probably been like that for 100 years in the ground possibly. But the two pieces left over are extremely strong. I tried pretty hard to bend it a little just to see if I could crack the crud off of it and found it pretty difficult. Ended up bending a little but tends to make me think this is not copper
