TRUE or NOT TRUE?

I'm going with NOT TRUE. According to Wikipedia the largest nugget ever found was the Welcome Stranger found in Australia in 1869, weighing 72.04 kg. That works out to about 150 pounds, well short of the 630 pounds claimed in the photo.

I just did some digging and it is Holterman reef gold specimen so its not 100% gold.I think specimens are worth
more then nuggets so today it would be priceless.

Nice detective work VS - it is a conglomerate so not a true nugget.  Well done!  {cool^sign}
