    school days, school days, good old GOLDEN school days!gold ring clad nugget pics


    Went to my old middle school again today and had my best luck yet! For 2 hours i hunted, and dug, fortunatly it was cool out, cloudy, and there was a small breeze. I found in total $4.96 in clad, an abercrombie button (figures), what looks like a gold nugget (i doubt it though), and a very nice looking ring, my parents think is a weading band!!! On the inside engraved is a 6 over a dash looking like this...

    6 __
    __ Then again it could be this 9

    ANYONE KNOW IF ITS REAL GOLD? (or silver, or platinum)

    TOTALS:

    COINS
    -16 quarters
    -7 dimes
    -4 nickels
    -6 pennies
    -----------------
    ~ $4.96

    JEWELRY
    -Abercrombie button
    -GOLD RING WEADING BAND!!!

    OTHER
    -Gold nugget (half an ounce)
    -lots of trash (erasers, pencils, pens, pull tabs, etc...)

    TOTALS FOR THE SCHOOL (6 visits ~ 1 hour each...)
    *** $19.00 ***


    THANKS FOR LOOKING!!!

    Gold nugget...

    Congrats on a productive day at school...
    The ring looks like it may be plated (sorry) but it is really hard to tell from the photos with any certainty. So take the plated remark with a large grain of salt...

    Looks like that spot has been very good to you...

    Clad=silver!

    Keep it up.

    The ring looks like an old mood ring. I got about a dozen of them.

    Re: school days, school days, good old GOLDEN school days!gold ring clad nugget pics

    Congrats on the ring! You should take it to a jeweler to make sure. I once found a poorly plated gold ring at a middle school. I thought it was a wedding band, but my parents said that rings like that (wedding band like) were given to boyfriend and girlfriend. If it isn't marked, then i suggest going to a jeweler to see if it is actually a wedding band.

    (i should have read all the post first...plus the ring would have been ten, but gold is gold. In fact all but two of my golkd finds is solid)

    Are you sure the nugget isn't a piece of lead? Like a bullet or musketball?

    Yeah, i will have to take the ring to a jeweler when i get a chance, gold plated still looks like gold!

    The nugget (my best guest) is melted alluminum spraypainted gold. No idea

    Thanks for the replies.
