I recently moved to Ohio about a month and a half ago and have been hitting a few of the local parks. I've found a good amount of silver so far but came across this monster at a park the other day. Thought it was fake because of its size and the tarnish it had. Its 18k and weighs 18.6 grams. Scrap value would be $800. I'm starting to Ohio a little more lol.

Nice find...BUT...I would have it tested to make sure it's real gold since gold doesn't tarnish!
Actually the gold doesn't tarnish but the other metals mixed in with the gold to make the metal harder does tarnish or at least that's what it says on the internet lol. It's real. Already has been tested.

That’s one to get tested. I worked at a pawn shop and we see this type of ring every week. All are unfortunately fake and all are marked 18k. They all have this type of design as well.
