Yesterdays ongoing scrap clearance in the shed produced a little surprise. Just as I was about to throw yet another junk white metal ring onto the heap something inside it caught my eye.
A quick clean and a small and crappy laser etched mark became visible. I knew that it wasn't gold because the signal must have been in the steel range for it to get consigned to the junk pouch, and the mark wasn't the Platinum one. A bit of digging around on the Internet produced a dead ringer (sorry) which was identified as a post 2010 Palladium ring hallmarked in Sheffield. Apparently modern Palladium fineness marks are in 3 circles whilst similar purity Platinum ones are in a trapeze.
Anyway it is about £130 as scrap at current prices (or three toilet rolls and half a dozen eggs ).
Nice (temporarily) shiny new one x1
