    A little surf and turf

    Here are some of my better finds over the last month or so. This represents 3 beach hunts and a couple park hunts.

    When I saw this ring in the scoop I was 100% sure it was a junker. When I got home it just seemed to have the weight and the feel of silver. So I put my loop on it and sure enough I saw "925" very small on the inside. I then took some sand paper to the band and gave it a good rubbing to see if it really was 925 and I did not see any brass coming through. I should probably put some of the silver acid stuff on it...so for now I am 99% it is silver.

    I need to figure out how to take pics with my iPhone and have them stay small. I had to crop this one so much just so the site would take it. Anyways the silvers rosies came from the beach along with a couple of the buffs and the 1940 British Penny. The others were found at some park hunts.

    Way to go Jared! At first glance I would have thought it a junker ring too just give the amount of little diamonds in it. I would take your surf and turf over the real thing any day!!
