Gold Pan


The large gold pan is speckled and splotched with rust inside and out. It is made of iron. Condition: Probably stable. In the 1950's the Fougbergs found this pan in the woods close to Birkenhead (formerly Blackwater) Lake. There men have searched for gold for many years, certainly in the 1890's, possibly earlier.
