  13. So, this is now a solved mystery right? Shouldn't the category be updated?
  14. I would polish it and see if you can find anything. Good luck.
  15. Maybe a sanding block?
  16. Silver wouldn't melt from a beach fire. Aluminum on the other had would. It weights too much to be aluminum though. If you did a acid test on it and it were silver it would turn red.
  17. Like what? The 1966 is silver the other one is not.
  18. A fishing weight?

  22. I can tell you what they aren't, Sterling Silver.
  23. The name is stamped right on them?
  24. If it says Made In China, it's definitely Not Silver.
  25. I'm pretty sure you are assuming correctly saying it's silver. The puzzling part is i can't see any stamps. There should be both a sterling and a identifying number around the edges but as you say may...
  26. If you work with silver for a long time yes you can just look at it and know if it's real or not. Same thing as gold, i can look at a gold ring on your finger and tell you what Karet it is without eve...
  27. Hello, are you sure it's silver?

  29. Is this a unsolved mystery?
  30. I'll take fishing weight for $500 Alex.
  31. Is it possible that's a 900 instead? 900 would be coin silver. 950 is a pretty rare stamp.
  32. Tome it looks like tinned copper. If it were silver it would be marked.
  33. Seems to be several of this similar type of things around. To me they all have the same look (China). You should have it tested to see if it's even silver and test the stone (Plastic) with the hot nee...

  38. It's a tea straw probably from India.

  41. Don't know but it could sure use a bath in some Hydrochloric acid or muriatic acid. The acid would eat all that rust off of there.
  42. The stamps are the hallmark and or makers mark and 925 sterling. I would question them all. Did you polish it or was it like that?
  43. Pretty sure it's plated. Purity marks have been used since 1868 and if it were silver there would be a stamp.
  44. Hydrochloric acid or muriatic acid does funny things to some metals. Other metals it does wonderful things.
  45. Can you scan it for a better picture of the stamp?
  46. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proto_(tools)
  47. I would first try to determine what kind of metal it is. If it is gold it would have a stamp on it indicating the karet. Usually the stamp would be on the clasp.
