Scrapped another dryer yesterday and from the sounds of moving around I knew there were quite a few coins. Found over one hundred, and thought I found my first gold, a small hoop ear ring and pearl stud with gold post. Looked at them both and saw the letters RGF (rolled gold filled) after 14K on both. I guess technically is gold, just not the content I hoped for. Oh well, will continue the search. I have found that by removing the top and then removing the drum, it is naturally much easier to remove the electric motor, but is also easier to remove anything that is loose on the bottom.
