Our store buys old gold rings, chains, etc. every day from
customers. Then we send the gold to our refinery for a cash
settlement (usually once a month). I guess I am ‘old school’ when it
comes to testing gold. We read the stamps, feel the weight, look at
the color, and sometimes use acid. We always have a percentage of
error but it is very small. Today I read an article in a trade
journal about the electronic gold testers. One was in the $400 range
and one in the $90 range. What I would like to know is, are the
electronic testers reliable and worth the money?
Thanks in advance for your advice.
