Determine if jewelry or coins are made from real gold or fake

You never know what you might stumble across at your next visit to a flea market or thrift store. Real gold is very soft, so biting down on the piece is a time-honored test for real gold. You can also examine your jewelry for a maker's carat stamp or discoloration that may indicate fake metal.
