Definitely the most valuable thing I've found!

12g 22k!!!

The bottles/glass were slim pickings.
Going back next week though.

Wow, fantastic find! Was that in the dump or did you find it metal detecting?

A bit of both lol.
It wasn't an area I planned to dig for bottles, but after finding tons of glass (metal detecting), I dug..
Was a few feet down, wouldn't have found it otherwise.

I'm stoked! Never found something so valuable!

Wow, I bet the person who lost that while taking out the trash was pretty upset about it! (Either that or someone got cheated on). Great find! Definitely not a common thing to find in a dump.

i've found rings before but they weren't pure gold and not very valuable , someone likely lost it accidently or tossed it away intentionally maybe gold wasn't as valuable back then ? although losing it accidently more likely

22k is at $54/g.
It may be worth more as a ring though. It's in nice shape!
