Thread: Gold Ring with Inlaid 90% Gold Mexican Coin!

  1. #1

    Gold Ring with Inlaid 90% Gold Mexican Coin!

    There's just no way to put it in words. I can't believe I found it! It wasn't even found at the destination that I set out to hunt today. Just a backup spot. Ring is not stamped but I'm guessing It's 10k or 14k because of the lighter color.

    Below is a link to the YT video and some pictures.

    Thanks to all you guys for the inspiration to keep going when finds are slow. Even though I don't post all the time I always love to look and see what others are finding!

    If you watch the video I was shaking because I knew it was the real deal. I was trying to whisper because a guy was hunting with an AT pro about 20 yards behind me. (We were not hunting together) lol!
