Although the corrosion level can be a strong indicator, it also depends on more factors.
- How old was it before it got lost
- The finding place is not necessarily the same place where it was lost/dropped/berried
- It could be enclosed (Grave, sealed pottery/box etc) before nature or another force accidentally releases it to more aggressive surroundings, where it could be found later.
- It could have been in a persons/family possession for a long period of time before it got lost
- And a few more reasons
