Found this beautiful treasure and i was curious to a possible date or value. It was around 5 to 7 inches in the woods in roots and rocks. Thanks.

Fresh from the woods about 6in down in roots. Sounded like a piece of wire or can slaw. Equinox 800 15in coil. Before and after photos. In the ground I thought it was a gold snake. Crazy wierd find. Completely unexpected. Obviously lmao. Probably was a bracelet at one time. But someone liked it as a snake instead. No signs of where it could have been connected anyways. Dig all those targets!!! It weighs 1 ounce of sterling and feels like a dead snake in your hand. Completely beautiful 😍 not to mention ot scared the shit out of me digging around looking for it and a green eyed snake pops out. I made a video during the dig after I found the head and shit myself lol.

That is way cool. Looks like it could slither and chomp your fingers. I had a scare like that once digging a spider broach. I DONT LIKE SPIDERS! Crazy how the flight or fight response gets you in those moments. Congratulations on that awesome find.

Very cool You could probably get a jeweler to shape it back into a bracelet. Also I noticed it looks like the head unscrews possibly?

Could have been at one point. Now it's definitely a snake. No indication on how it might have been connected, which is wierd.
It did not connect... It wraps.
Like this.
Also...
Do a search "Vintage snake bracelet".
Also.. might want to do a test as well... these have been made out of all types of metals.
I will bet you will find the exact match.
