    Possible gold nugget? Or just wishful thinking xD

    Ok so I was hitting up one of the local parks by the lake near my house. Didn't realize how modern the park was so...not really any old coins...or trash. But I decided to go out towards the lake a bit and detect...
    then i got a very strong signal, dug and found nothing...then I swept over the pile of dirt I had out...and it went crazy.... Found this small piece of something, not sure how to clean it. Doesn't look like iron, but I'm not sure what other metals besides iron/gold that I can find raw like this around here. Pic below, opinions?

    Metal detecting is Like A Marathon, Your Running fast then start Slowing A Bit The You Find Something Interesting And You Pick Up the Pace!!! The Only Difference is If You Are Addicted to this Hobby there Is NO FINISH LINE HH Chug And Red

    To clean it: throw it in a glass with vinegar for half an hour and then hit it with a toothbrush.
    Then take another look and see what it is.
