333 = 8k Gold


Recommended Posts


Nice hunt Okara!

That medal looks German or Dutch. 馃憤 I've heard of 8k but never seen it, apparently it pits a bit, but gold is gold, congrats.

Some nice shark teeth you have there too. I'm regaled with tales of them everywhere here, but in 20 years I've never developed the imprint. 馃

Thanks 350! I never heard of 8k gold until I looked it up and sure enough it's the real deal. Going out again in the morning in a different direction. Water hunting has been poor to say the least so I'm staying dry for awhile.

Been to the gulf a couple times on vacation before I was into the hobby and we used to load up on those fossilized sharks teeth!

It's always fun to find them. Here's one I found with a metal detector a couple years ago. I had to really laugh when I saw that in the scoop! Couldn't believe it!聽

Thanks! I got a 9k this year with the Manticore. Its ID was a 61. I was sure it was another penny.

That's a nice gift from the surf gods!

Never found 8k, but I bought acid test kit for it several years ago off ebay. Came with 7/8/9k. I have found a couple oddball golds, 12k and 15k, the 12k was marked 500, than a few I hoped were gold ....testing with lower K acid kit but none made the cut..Only found 1 gold marked 9k that I can remember.

A lot of German dental work is done with 8k gold, and has been used for nearly 100 years in Germany.

Something grandfather taught me. He said they used it because is worked well for dental procedures聽 and gold was scarce in their area because of the wars.
