My only weight and coin from new south wales australia. A 50 metre section of a small dry creek worked in 1855 gave up about 2 ounces in nuggets and the weight and chinese coin and a couple percussion caps. I could almost see the old prospector weighing his gold in the dry creek bed in 1855. Judging by what they left for me i bet it was a good weigh day and jovial night around the campfire.

Norvic,  You are getting a collection going there, very nice.

Glenn,  I have a set of scales, but did not find them.  Cool pics.

RedDirt, I love that style of weight and have only found 2 but I seem to have misplaced one of them.

Here are some of the others I have recovered with my biggest as being 2 oz as well.  Wonder if they had anything larger than 2 oz?

Hunter,  Those history dig saves are amazing.  What is even more cool, is to have your ancestors gold scale kit.  Thanks for sharing.
