Default All that glitters -

Here's a display of stamped gold I dug over the years. Every piece is stamped 10k or 14K but officially discredited to junk metal.. Better be sure of your gold finds - or your future purchases. Steve in so la

that's so disappointing...

I've actually never tested a few of my pieces for fear of being heartbroken...

They still display nicely

Disappointing...but I know you have found a whole lot of the real stuff in your time, too.
