    The Bling and the Beautiful

    First all the bling... The ring with F on it is a Fendi ring and is gold plated brass BUT it sells online for $350! Seems ridiculous that a brass ring would go for that.

    Here is a pic of the good finds. Most came from Buffalo Beach. Lots of Rosies and some other nice older coins. The Indians and one of the mercs came from a street tear out.

    Here is the gold I found. The pendant is 18k and weighs 4.42 grams. The other gold is a broken ring. It tested at 10k. Probably some yellow garnet or citrine stones.

    Awesome coins and bling, Jared! Are those V Nickels?

    That 18k gold pendent is incredible! What a great find!

    Thanks. There are a couple slicked out V niks. One is from 1896 but to get that date I had to dremmel the “rust” off and then use nik-a-date.

    Welcome to the forum Mr Cornelius!

    WOW! Nice pile of goodies! I'm not likely to ever find any gold at these poor hard scrabble cellar hole sites in the woods that I hunt. I just might have to hit some beaches this winter.

    Tony you are showing your age with the Yukon Cornelius pic. His battle with the abonimable snowman was something I looked forward to every year as a little kid.
