    Talking Best GOLD Day!

    I had a fantastic week of detecting local beaches! There are 3 beaches that I detected each day this week and it was a lot of fun. Below is a pic of all the junk jewelry I found this week. What is not seen is the amount of trash I also dug. There is a tungsten ring in there that I’m keeping…all the rest I will discard.

    Here is a pic of all the 925 silver that I found. Included is my first Pandora silver ring. The day before I found a fake gold Pandora ring so it was nice to find a real one.

    The nickels below are from Buffalo beach. The V nik was buried in the clay which helped preserve it I think...its a 1901.

    Today I detected Buffalo beach and for the first 3 hours I found bottle cap after bottle cap. I was getting frustrated and I decided to head to the sections of the beach where I had found old coins in previous hunts. I soon got a perfect bottle cap signal (35 on the Nox900) only an inch deep or so and in my scoop was a 14K men's wedding ring! I was so excited! I kept at it for another hour and came across a sketchy 23 signal and I had another gold in the scoop!

    The second one is interesting in that it is marked 625 which (per google) is likely pre 1930's and made in England. Being 625 it is 15k gold. I have never seen a 15k gold ring before. Unfortunately the stone is no longer in it.

    Today was my best gold day I have had.

    I used both the Manticore and Nox900 for these hunts in Beach mode.

    Thanks for looking!

    AMAZING, JARED!!! Buffalo Beach must have been cherry picked at some point, before you started digging all the old low conductors? You must have had some long days there!
