    Different Beach, Different Ring

    About settled in after moving down to FL back in Oct so decide to ask the boss man if I could work 4-10's and so my three day weekends begin. Normally the misses and I will hit a different beach each weekend and yesterday was no exception. Not a very wide beach, but brought the beach goers. Found the usual battery money, fishing weights and a new ring which I haven 't seen before, but the inside reads "S. Steel" looked it up on Google and it shows just to be a stainless steel ring, but enough to get the heart racing at the time, and a different material to add to the collection Happy hunting all!!

    Almost looks like part of a faucet, but prob is a ring. Congrats on the find.

    I guess they will make ring out of anything these days That will make a cool addition to the collection. I think it's the first one I have seen.

    Thanks all. Didn't have the weight as my last ring did (Triton) and at first I was unsure due to looking at the outside of it was squared off, but you always need to check the inside ring(s) for any markings, and being rounded. Good hunting all.
