Went out for about 4 hours today... and found three Clad... and this..? The VDI was from 32-38.
It very heavy.... and Found in the "Comstock" Silver load area of Nevada.
I split it in 3 pieces with my hatchet after I got home.. that's the reason there are striations in the. Metal. Is this RAW silver..? I have Zero knowledge of raw silver. Are there experts out there that can tell me how I check raw silver..? I would hate to pay somebody $50 when it's maybe only worth $100.00 or Zero.

Do you have a silver tester? There is a way to test silver to find out or not if it is Silver --many people have tested coins & rings with a drop of this liquid placed in an area that isn't noticeable to ruin its value! Good Luck--Hope it is of real silver content! Ma

That may be a mix of lead zinc don't think you could cut silver like that . try a small size piece the size of a penny and see if it still IDS the same . sube

Recommend an x-ray test (XRF Gun). try your local scrap yard or larger gold buyer.

I just went online and there are many Gold Silver and platinum testing kits. some of them range from 16 to $50 and I have no problem spending the money but is anybody out there have experience with some of these testing kits.
