Hi Duane.

Welcome to FMF.

If you can provide better pictures it would be easier for us to take a decision.

I think if it were gold it would be very clear to the touch and to the eye.

Regards.

Duane,

Welcome to FMF. Please check out the link at the top of the page "A General Guide for Using the Forum...", especially the paragraph 7, which links to a page with simple at-home tests that you can do to give the forum members more information to help you with your identification problem.

Also, as Firmo has pointed out, one picture (and not a good one at that) is never enough to even guess at an answer.
