    Could This Be A Silver Nugget?

    Could This Be A Silver Nugget?
    I found it in a river. About knee deep and 4" down.
    Although it looks like it could have been melted.
    It is non magnetic and rings an 81-83 on my AT-Pro in STD mode with GB@80 and sensitivity @ 4 bars.
    It definitely has shiny parts that are not covered in crud. It doesn't scratch with my fingernail like lead and doesn't weigh what lead would weigh for its size.
    How else could I test it?
    What's the best and safest way to clean it?

    It looks like common piece of melted aluminum. Any pawn shop can test for silver.

    It weighs a bit more than crumpled up piece of foil it's size.

    I'm gonna buy a test kit on eBay for silver & gold and see what it is.

    Thanks

    Can you see a pig/boat shape? with C P roman numerals? Is there SI on it? I think Maybe Bermuda? Sommer Isles? Most say aluminum but mine look too good for that. I use olive oil and old toothbrushes. Heavy metal it is.

    Its good to have a test solution because you never know. But melted aluminum is very common.
