Thrift store gold

One of the thrift stores we frequent had a box with a couple dozen rings in it. $4 per ring, what ever they are, doesn't matter. There were several sterling rings that just did not have enough mass to spend $4 for. Then this little gem was spotted:

Nice score TVR.. I found a 14k pendant at a yard sale a few months ago..I had to have my wife take a picture of it as my eyes can’t focus in on tiny marking..turns out it had 14k stamped at 3 different places and I could see 1..paid a buck for mine..

I’d be checking out that thrift store more often. 👍

You might be surprised what gets left in clothing too……. If I owned/managed a thrift store I would bet a hand held pinpointer and sweep the pockets etc just to be safe.

We check it every week. It is not the same one where we found the 15 gram sterling bracelet for $1 two weeks ago.
We picked up a nice set of ceramic dishes, bowls and serving plates that are going to the new house, as well as a couple bags of craft stuff including yarn in the color my wife was looking for to do a blanket for one of the grandkids ... the little ring's melt value is about twice what the total price was for all of it out the door. Was a worthwhile visit!

Sure is nice to get almost free gold or silver. I hit a couplr gold rings recently at a garage sale. Paid $1 for a bag that had 8 gold colored rings in it. Turned out 2 were good gold.
