Still can’t believe it. Went to a couple spots with my brother and they did not disappoint. We found a handful of Indian head Pennie’s and wheaties with a few stinkin lincolns My Brother pulled a sterling silver union pin and an 1724 king George 1/2 penny (bucket lister.) It was literally laying on the bank of the river waiting to be picked up. Then it happened, about 6 inches deep I pulled out the hand made copper box with an ornate piece of gold in it. Still don’t know what it is but it’s gold none the less. If anyone has an idea what it is please let me know.

i know it looks like gold but did you verify it is in fact gold...and what Karet. Kinda looks like polished brass but it usually does not come out of the ground lookin like that,for sure.

Me too. I tried to reverse google search it but I struck out
i know it looks like gold but did you verify it is in fact gold...and what Karet. Kinda looks like polished brass but it usually does not come out of the ground lookin like that,for sure.I tested it with acid and i figured it’s either 10k or 9k bc the 10k solution the gold stayed. And yes gold is def. Undeniable when it comes out the ground.

Hello, Yes I tested it with 10k acid and it stayed on my stone so I’m assuming it’s either 10k or even 9k. Gold def undeniable when it come out the ground or in this case 6 inches deep in a river bed.

It looks like some sort of old clip. Maybe like and old women’s hair clip. There would have been more but that was my first thought

What does the other side of it look like? It would be good to know whether the design is only on the one side. Seems that the side you have shown would be unseen, as the hooks are on that side.
The other side has the same pattern on it. I thought it was maybe a tie holder but I researched them and I don’t think it’s that. They look like a money clip or have a hinge on them.
