Rob, nice picker!  That knife was deep.  It makes you wonder, did it accidentally drop from an old timer digging the bottom of the wash maybe for dry washing sake?  Or did it buried by that much sediment maybe over 100+ year period?  (or whatever time period occurred here)  I guess we'll never know but some fun junk for sure.  thanks for sharing.  DJ

Nice Nugget Rob! WTG.  Talk in grams for us newbies :)
Little buffing and that knife will be good as new.

Hey Guys,

Djhanson - Definitely interesting to think about how it got there originally. 

Tom -  I should start using Grams .... LOL  The weight was 3.9 Grams.

Hey Djhanson,

   Back in the early days with only the VLF detectors, I used to weigh my gold in grains only.  I had a Dillon Precision Black Powder Scale and used it to weigh my gold.  It would weight down to 1/10 of a grain.  I used to get hundreds of 1-5 grainers ..... LOL
