'Monte-Math' huh !!!!

April 13, 2021 06:17PM avatar
So what is Monte's Math Law about rings?? I see people posting gold ring finds that range from 10k-24k, but regardless they still call them 'Gold" rings. At what point do we cut it off. Is 18k and higher truly "gold" rings and the rest just a common ring?

But I see the gold ring folks look at melt value, so a 10k gold ring will yield less gold than a 24k ring ( assume same size and dimensions) but they are both still considered a 'gold" ring

Well if I wanna meltdown all this old silver I'm finding it appears the war nickel will yield more silver than say a half dime, but yet we call a half dime a silver coin and the war nickel not ??

If a coin is to be called a silver coin, its total mass has to be made up of a certain percentage of silver. Shouldn't that be the same for gold rings, ie: of the ring's total mass a certain percentage has to be gold in order to call it a gold ring. It looks like the 22k & 24K are really the gold rings, maybe let the 18k's slip in. Anything lower is just a ring.
