Hi, I looked in the archives and can’t find an answer to the
What is the karat of the modern US liberty eagle. I am asking
this because I have one and I would like to use it in my jewelry.
(Plus, it gives me an excuse to use my new rolling mill, and ask for
drawplates and tongs from Santa this year.)
When doing a marriage of metals, which karat of gold is most
compatible when soldering to silver? I am looking for the most
yellow karat I can get, but I don’t want it to be too soft. I have
used 14 karat, but it seems to get lost on the silver - not enough
Thanks for you help.
