Did a quick park hunt today and this is what I found. Does anyone have any idea what this is It was buried deep, around 8" I live in BC Canada.
It has 1 small spot with green, does gold ever do this?
Also, it looks like its been bent from its original "Wishbone" shape.
I really hope it's gold lol.

Metal detecting tip of the day: "If you are getting a weak/intermittent signal, don't necessarily give up, its probably just really deep." You might end up glad you dug the spot.

How do you find Gold coins? Reply: 'By finding lots of Silver ones..'

Yep, you're definitely right, looks just like this one:
Its probably been down there for over 70 years, do you think the gold plating would have worn off?
Also is there a way to extract plating from an object? lol

Gold doesn't tarnish. Most likely brass/copper. Being a plumber, I see copper turn green. Have a jeweler check it out.
