Item Description

A "golden" deal of six, sculptural, flattened, river-worn, gold nuggets from the historic Yuba River placers area. They were mined and kept in a family collection since the 1950s or 1960s, I was told by my source, who sold that particular family collection. They have a rich, mellow-yellow patina and really interesting, curvaceous forms, from flattened disks to looking like boots or shoes. Total weight is 5 grams. The current gold price is nearly $1221/ounce or over $39/gram. Bullion value is nearly $200. Specimen value is more. For this locality, they are excellent.
