Some quality finds there, congrats! Also I wouldn't rule out that ring being real until you have it tested, cause from here, it looks real!

That's a nice find. I guess it's a good idea to take unidentified stuff home and clean it just to make sure before throwing it away.

Do you think the IH on the piece of metal was part of an old money clip?? I have an money clip with an old Morgan on it...just a thought.

My guess is a money clip also . Or a key chain fob . Here is my first walker found in a money clip. It was hand painted on the front .
Very cool post 👍

Looks like it's communion, and since it' a kid in the photo, probably a pendant signifying their First Communion..... Cool find!

And is it possible there are tiny diamonds around the edge that come out to .34 Karats, and it's set in 14K gold?

Ok, looking at it more, that's what I am going with. It's a 14k pendant, first communion, with some small diamonds around the edge..... Yes???? What do I win????

Or were you talking about the piece of metal with the Indian head in it?

It's stamped CT34 14k not sure what the CT34 means but that's cool its a first communion pendant I doubt I could find the owner no initials or anything and I didn't pop open the pendant I regret taking the Indian Head out of the metal it was stuck in if it was a clip of some sort more unique stuck in the metal
