  1. Wow, I had no idea that it was better to change shapeless gold into some kind of jewelry or coin to increase the sale price. My uncle was an excentric person that liked to go up into Alaska to mine for gold. Well, when he passed I inherited some of his gold and now I am not quite sure what to do with it. I really appreciate your advice so I can get some cash for it!
