Help me please! I bought some rare gold and I need help
Hello everyone, I recently piced up what I believe to be rare gold specimen with quarts. I know very little in the subject and I am just beginning my research. I had the gold acid tested and it passed 14k and 24k tests.
Any info would be helpful and much appreciated. Thank you all in advance.

You should keep it until you need the money. Good luck.

I agree! It appears to be Crystalline Gold which is the rarest and most often, the most beautiful Gold on this Earth! Combine that with the Newspaper clipping of where and when it came from in the display with them, then you have some very valuable specimens. If you have to sell them, then they would be best sold by a reputable Auction House such as Sotheby's, Christie's or Heritage where they will get the promoting, attention and interest they deserve.

I'm with Frank. Heritage Auctions would be my choice. You can also go to their web site and browse around to try and find something similar and what it sold for. www.ha.com

doninbrewster and Frank are on the money with this. Heritage Auctions is the best way to go with stuff like this. It is a well established auction site where buyers are not cheap when it comes to collecting. To sell this as a collection as a whole is awesome. Once you send it to HA they will appraise it and tell you the facts . Great find!
