    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.

    So most likely gold plated, at least.

    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.
