As luck would have it I am very pleased that I did as this is what I recovered.
A 1889 English sixpence and a silver pendant and chain. The pendant contains a 0.999 fine Silver ingot from NZ Mint. The chain is 0.925 and was already broken but looks as though it is repairable. I don't think the ingot has a lot of value, but it sure beats dog tags n pennies. All up the chain and ingot weigh 10.7grams
