    Looks like a melted blob of silver solder.

    Hello Shawn.

    Welcome to these parts, and thanks for showing us this metal. I'm not getting gold visual clues…

    In what context did you find it?

    I found it in a very remote spot on a beach where not too many will venture too.I found it just laying in some rocks.I had it tested at a pawn shop.it passed the test for 18k but it left a mark on the streak plate so the guy said its not gold.its very malable.

    Take it to a buyer of gold scrap. If the pawn shop help ain't totally convinced they'll back off and say anything. I ain't seeing the color of gold in your picture, but I just can't say by a picture what it is you have. There are a good handful metals that are very malleable.

    I don't think it is gold - at least not in any natural state. Looks like a glob of solder or melted braze rod - especially being flat on one side.

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    I don't see gold in the picture, looks more like what Charlie said.
    Due to the high price of ammunition there will be no warning shot.

    I have a few pieces that look like that. Drill into it. It looks like molten aluminum.

    melted aluminum is very common on beaches.People build big hot bon fires and consume beverages that come in cans.....which end up in the hot fire

    Finding melted lead on the remote stretch of beach is a great sign that you should detect that area more if you like finding old items

    Do a density test to determine specific gravity. That would be your best clue.
