    Bummmmerrrr!! Oh well it was still a great find and made for good discussion! Let’s hope the next one pops out a little shinier. Nonetheless, awesome find. Ddf.

    Many people report that there is an 'East European' connection to whatever scam was being operated.
    Perhaps one of these RC mentioned.

    Yes AARC think so. Looks very similar but has less shine. The gold exchange guy I take my stuff to said anyone can buy a stamp so guess it’s not that hard to do. Going to buy a gold tester from them as the owner developed and got a patent on his own electronic tester.

    I went on a hunt with OBN one day and was looking hard I finally heard a signal and scooped and scooped and scooped and finally found a ring in my scoop, it was crusted from the salt water but had some gold peeking out, when I got home I zapped it and used baking soda paste. It cleaned up amazing and it had strange marks on it (my memory is bad I think it was marked like "14kRG I thought (or wanted to think it was) someones initials, lol
    Ended up being an early 1900's Rolled gold ring, it had me on a roller coaster all day. I'll never forget how diplomatic OBN was about that ring, one of my favorite ring finds ever

    Very nice find!
    God grant me the serenity
    to accept the things I cannot change;
    courage to change the things I can;
    and wisdom to know the difference.

    Are you guys not reading that the OP confirmed in post #46 that (sadly, but not unexpectedly) it's fake?

    I have a huge jesus pendant that looks exactly that color marked 18k its 100% brass sorry to say but it has no luster. Also you dont need to go to a pawn shop. A simple streak test on porcelain would show you if something is brass or gold. Brass streaks black or grey and real gold will leave the color of gold.
