That's A First!

Steven, thanks for your post. I gotta tell you. Your find is a first for me. Never heard of anyone finding a gold tooth. Incredible!

Can't imagine how it was lost. My imagination is running wild on this one.

14k gold is nice. Gotta be old gold though. Most gold fillings today are a higher k.

Thanks again,
