Thought calculating the density would ID, but 4.2 doesn't match any metal in the tables I looked at. Either it is an alloy or I miscalculated. Back to the drafting board...

Hi, probably a dumb question - but did you calibrate the scale before weighing?

It sure lookalike it has old yellowed super glue like stuff of it's back.
It did have a piece of fabric, paper, fiber or something like that on that side. When I was digging it up, it was on there and then I brushed the dirt off and it came off.

Take to any jeweler or pawn shop and ask them to test.
