Question
I came across this what looks like a bar of gold. It has a few stamps on it. One is USA another is a circle with fr inside. It doesn't a magnet is not attracted to it at all and every home test I've done says its real. Can u tell me what the fr stands for?

Answer
"FR" is not something I recognize and probably doesn't have any significance. I believe it stands for the jeweler or the manufacturer.

I don't think it should matter where it came from because if its real gold it will be worth the same regardless of what lettering is imprinted on it.

Hope that helps!
