Default Awesome day with sterling and GOLD

Went to the Mts. again today and did very well as you can see. The gold earrings and the bracelet were the only 2 items found in a "store". The rest was found at yard sales. The watch chain has Eureka as a maker's mark, if anyone has any info on that please let me know. Earrings are marked but just cannot make out what purity they are, guessing 14 kt. Also, not pictured is this really old double mirror, one side normal, the other WTH, lol. And a pair of Piranha sunglasses that fit perfect. And one more thing, an old "eye wash" cup.

Nice stuff. Those carved MOP shell pieces are cool! It's odd that the gold earrings would be $3.50. That seems too cheap for gold earrings, but too high if they didn't know they were gold.

Don't you love those mirrors with the zoom feature?

That particular store is an odd sort of place. They are getting high on their jewelry and other stufff. But if you look at the hooks on the back and if you know your stuff, you'd know these are real. Also I have a pair of 21 kt. earrings with the same hooks. Also they are marked on there, just can't read it.
