    A small Gold ring and a lot of indians and silver

    I have had great success the last 3 weeks or so detecting. I rediscovered an old park I had given up on as all fill but I decided to try again and go really slow and been rewarded with a bunch of 1800's coins. 4 of the Indians and that Canadian LC from 1888 came at this park. The oldest coin from there was a well preserved 1864 indian. It has an old dent/scratch on her cheek and ribbon where the L would be. So I am not sure if it is the L version or not. I know that the tip of the bust line is sharp on the L version and rounded off more on the regular version but I can't tell for sure. But it is a pretty one and any indian that cleans up well puts a smile on my face.

    The gold ring came on a Memorial Day hunt at another very old park. It came up as a fairly solid 10 and when I dug it there were 2 nails with it. A very nice surprise to see. It was at least 8 inches down and is VERY small so it is a baby or kids ring for sure. 14K gold.

    Also found 4 silvers and some buttons during the hunt. And a pristine square nail with some mint luster on it among other old relics. The other silvers I found during my lunch breaks.

    AMAZING haul of goodies Jared! I don't even know where to start. Those green Indians are so beautiful (Don will be so jealous). Congrats on the gold ring and all the silver coins too. Surprisingly I have that exact same hair barrette with the flowers on it. I think I dug it in Ohio on a trip with Tony. Congrats and happy digging, Dave.

    Actually the park we started at before we doorknocked 20 homes is where I found many of these items. The Equinox had not come out yet. I still think about when you guys came here and even though we got so many permissions we only found a couple silvers...still bummed about that. I need to go visit you guys and meet Dave and Tony!

    Yeah maybe you are starting slow but you always seem to find a yard that has 10 silver halves in it.

    Great batch of coins. I have been quite lazy with the Nox on lower signals but your "10" gold ring should push me a bit to digger a few of those signals. Nice recoveries, 1 week into retirement - Wisconsin Digger

    I only dig a 10 or similar numbers at sites that are really old. And if they are deep. It’s paid off a couple times with a gold ring.

    Ich kehre im Juli zurück, kann aber wahrscheinlich erst im Oktober auf die Suche gehen. Ich habe auch einige mittelalterliche Knöpfe und Gegenstände für Sie! Danke!

    There is something to be said about slowing down. Great job Bucknut!

    I missed this post ( along with many others ) also . Fantastic coins , ring and pictures . The ring could possibly have been made by a Navajo craftsman . Any distinctive marks on the inside of the band ? Most I have seen have been made in silver a gold one is quite a rare find . Congratulations !

    Great work Bucknut! Glad to see you got the gold ring!! Going slow and digging pays off. I think too many people are impatient in this hobby when it comes to park hunting.
