With gold prices on the rise, over $1500US an ounce right now, up from $1200 at the beginning of the year, I am tempted to sell an ounce of the broken 10 and 14K bits I’ve accumulated.   

Just curious as to what the rest of y’all do with your gold jewelry.  Save it or sell it??

The jewelry I find is neat but has no sentimental value so at 1500 an oz. I cashed in and plan to use the proceeds to fund new adventures and some new equipment to enjoy. I will say take a lot of pictures of your finds for future reference, just never know.

I sell mine ever so often, especially when I get all hot and bothered about buying new equipment and need a little extra.   

Local guy will give me spot less 15% which is pretty good for walk in/walk out cash.

      I have 3 batches like this. I just listed one on CL for 225.00. Almost all iron items with some brass, ceramic etc. Priced too low? Too high? Going to be getting rid of all my old finds soon. Any ideas, opinions are good to hear. Thanks.

      Hi Folks
      Yep it's old kiwigold back again. (Trev from New Zealand) some of you may remember me from days gone by.
      73 years old now. Had a dose of throat cancer diagnosed late last year, 30 treatments of radiation seems to have sorted that out. And my prognosis is good. After a long absence from chasing gold have decided to get back into it. Ha ha one last fling lol. Before the body gets to tired or my back craps out.  Small scale I must admit. No more underwater dredging for me. I will be working the banks for mainly fine gold.  Have put together a system utilizing a mid western prospectors dry land suction nozzle. Now down to a two and a half inch suction nozzle. Guess I won't be shifting much eh. But at least everything is a lot lighter than what I used to use. And I don't expect to make a fortune. More of a paying hobby if I am lucky.  Will flick some pics up, when I get on the river and everything running. 
      Now back to the Subject heading. A guy here in NZ got hold of me, wanting two ounces of as pure as he can get beach gold, not pure as in purity,but not contaminated with to much black sand. Now I don't do beach mining any more, that was years ago. Like about 20. But I have a mate who still does.  And maybe able to help. But we all amalgamate our concentrate. End up with a blob of gold sponge, which we then melt.  Now somewhere years back on one of the gold forums. I recall seeing a mention of how to convert gold sponge back into free running gold.  It may have been, soak in lemon juice or vinegar for a while. But not sure on that. My memory ain't what it used to be.  So can anybody assist who knows of the method or knows someone that does. 
      I have attached a pic of some gold sponge I had. Sadly I turned that into a little blob of melted gold. A whole .58 of a gram. Yahoo I'm rich. So I can't experiment with it. 
      Good to be back. Although I do read the forum from time to time, haven't posted for several years.
       Cheers Trev in New Zealand.

      I was wondering if it could be a good idea store corroded metal detecting finds in a container of oil?
      I have old bits and pieces made of copper etc. and it probably isn't good for them in the long term to be out in the air for oxidation reasons.
      What I was thinking of doing was filling a container with vegetable oil and putting them all into it for long term storage, until I can find a better place to store them, think this is a good idea or could it damage them? Maybe there is another type of preservation liquid?

      In this video this lawyer claims that this person who found a 9 cwt diamond in Arkansas is responsible for paying taxes whether he sells it or not. Then he goes on and claims anything a person would find, they would pay tax on it if they sell or not. My understanding when it comes to gold (nuggets, specimens, coins, etc.) it is not taxable until you sell it. I'm not sure about other items one might find that are valuable. What's you opinion?

      I was wondering if anyone would want to share pictures of there display cases, not so much shadow boxes but anyone with larger display cases. I love old and nice ones so thought it would be cool to see some...ive got one i pulled out of a general store that opened in the 1930s and been working on it for awhile getting it cleaned up, also have a smaller one that i literally seen in a junk pile on the side of the road that ive been working on replacing rotten wood and for sum reason they lined the inside with wallpaper so been cleaning that up to.. i found the smaller one and amazingly the old glass didnt even have a crack in it..
