Default Big Flea Market Silver

Decided to get ahead of the crowd today so got up and moving to go the flea market. First place I stopped had a "pile" of junk jewelry, I start pawing and this is laying right there next to the wad of necklaces. I grab it up and get my loop, sure enough it says 925 on clasp. I did not see the other marks until later. But this guy comes up and starts saying "oh you never know you might find some gold in there", So I say to him, "Why do you think I'm looking through it" and I am thinking move along and shut your trap, sorry but I don't go there to socialize, I'm on a mission! LOL And it cost a whopping .50 and it weighs in at 27.43 grams. Not a bad day and I stayed clean to boot. I think it plays well with my other bracelets......

All the rings I metal detected plus I have quite a few more. The bracelets have all been found "thrifting" except for the I.D. Oh lord and the neck chains I have found, a ton. I think I could give Zales a run for their money, lol. It's sickness LOL,

That is a good score! Most flea market sellers would have caught that, and had it priced at several dollars...or more. You got a nice line-up going there!
