Default VERY good last 2 weeks, amazing finds...

Well been pretty hot here as in most of the US so still no Metal detecting for me. But I did score heavy this past 2 weeks with my latest just today. First I found the 2 silver necklaces ( blue & the African) at different shops for about $3 total. The blue is silver but I mainly bought it because it has a lot of work into it, and the color is beautiful. The gold bracelet 10 kt. just dumb luck find and I got it for $2. Earrings inside of that were in a basket for .50 Italy 925. The animal print round necklace was another stumble upon find. Marked Sigal 925 and that was $2. Going for more than a few bucks on the net. Round earrings 925 for a $1. Fruit of the Loom paperweight with coins, had to have it for the 1964 half dollar inside $1.50. Salt and pepper marked sterling duchin $5.00. And the find of the century a hand sand cast Navajo necklace for $3.00. These babies are way out there on the net. Of course it is not marked so they had no clue. But tested just under I think for 925. It's a beauty though. Hope everyone is safe out there. Have a great day !!

Awesome! I like the salt-n-pepper! They’re a thin foil, weighted. Don’t sell for melt!

Thank you, had no idea about the shakers just that it said sterling. Can't seem to get the salt top off, any ideas? It screws to glass so that could be tricky.
