I can’t do it and don’t want to start a new rush up this way. It’s probably a brass bolt that’s been rolling around for a hundred or so years. Took it into the lab to go all science on it and density of 8.58 confirmed it. Still going in the cabinet for laughs.

‘Nuggets’ like that are best placed in strategic locations whereby they become ‘honesty testers’ - my friend Henry has a bottle of homemade ‘gold nuggets’ on the window ledge at my place. Now and again a few more go missing - and we laugh.
