Gold Pan with Gold!

This is the one gold pan I saved for the museum of the ones I found on the ship. All the gold pans had been used. I rinsed them off with a hose when I got them home. I noticed something shining in the bottom of this one. After looking at the pan through a loupe (magnifier), it has tiny specks of gold imbedded in the plastic on the bottom of the pan, so I saved it for the museum.

The pan measures 16 1/2" in diameter.
