APRIL MEETING
President Mindy Spiroch welcomed members and
guests to the April 8th meeting, including John and Elise
Doyno of Wellington, who joined during the meeting.
Welcome to the entire Doyno family!
Jim Sharp, with an assist by Nick Mosca, presented a
great program: “How to sell your gold and not get ripped
off.” Club members learned many important pointers,
such as, sometimes it’s better to sell your gold jewelry as
just that – gold jewelry – NOT as scrap. Depending on the
item, you could get much more money for it that way. If
you’re not sure what your piece is worth, have it
appraised! When selling scrap gold, be sure to separate it
by category (e.g. 10kt, 14kt, 18kt, etc.). Before you head
out to sell your gold, it’s vital that you understand the
difference between DWT and TROY ounces, weigh it, and
know the price of gold for the day you are selling so you
don’t get ripped off. Expect the buyer to take 10 to 20
percent of the value when you sell, as they are in business
to make a profit. Members were given ideas of where they
could sell their scrap gold. Some favorite buyers
mentioned by club members who sell their finds include
fellow member Nick Mosca, Rechant’s Precious Metals at
the corner of Forest Hill and Congress, and Midwest
Refineries. Handouts were passed around that listed these
and other options for those who wish to sell. Additional
information listed on the sheets included a variety of
useful websites and various jewelry markings. If you
missed your copies, ask Jim or Nick at the next meeting.
Stacey deLucia encouraged members to send her
pictures and info about any returns they’ve made, relevant
websites they enjoy, or treasure hunting articles that
members may find of interest. As space allows, your ideas
may be published in a future edition of the Tinfoil Times.
Stacey also encouraged everyone to continue to bring in
prescription eyeglasses and sunglasses, which the club
donates to the Lion’s Club. Jan Smirnow mentioned that
she is still collecting cell phones and ink cartridges.
Mindy thanked Marilyn and Irving Smith for
providing refreshments and Stacey deLucia for bringing
the Mystery Item. Stacey stumped everyone for the second
month in a row, this time with a small toy skate.
