8/6/17 Report - Potential Tropical Cyclone Seven Getting Organized. Mauron Watch. Gold--Filled Jewelry.

Written by the TreasureGuide for the exclusive use of

The system down by Central America (red X) is being referred to as Potential Tropical Cyclone Seven and is moving very slowly west/northwest.  It looks like it will head towards Yucatan and into the Gulf, as shown below.  That is one to watch.  It has a 90% chance of becoming a cyclone in the next 48 hours.

Predicted Path of Tropical Storm Seven.

The other system is still out in the middle Atlantic and has only a 20 percent chance of becoming a cyclone in the next 48 hours.  Some models predict that it will go north of us, and some south of us, and one has it targeting us.  That is a few days away in any case.  It might fall apart.

The surf on the Treasure Coast will increase a little tomorrow, but just up to 2 - 3 feet.


I did a little research on the watch I showed yesterday.  Among the watches by Mauron are ladies brooch and lapel watches.  I think it is probably a lapel watch.  I found many examples of those that were gold filled.  The one I showed yesterday looks like it could very well be gold filled.

I haven't talked much about gold jewelry lately.  Gold plated is when an item, often copper, is covered with a very thin, almost microscopic, film of pure gold electroplating. Some businesses refer to gold-plated jewelry as gold-overlay; however, those are essentially the same things.

Gold filled jewelry is much more valuable than gold-plated. In fact, there is almost 100 percent more gold in gold-filled items than gold-plated items.

It seems gold filled items are marked in various ways, but when an item is marked with the fraction 14/20, it means that the item contains 1/20 of 14 karat gold with relation to the brass fill/core (5%). If the product is stamped 12/20, it is made of 1/20 of 12 karat gold.

Thats all for now.
