    More GOLD and othe rings at the beach

    Here are some recent beach detecting finds. I found my 9th gold item of 2023 on Saturday! Just a small 14K gold ring but the rush is always fun. Also I found a small 925 heart ring.

    All the other rings are junk. The silver rosie came at a park a few weeks ago.

    Thanks for looking!

    Very nice Jared! Glad to see someone is still hitting the gold, which has been in short supply in recent times. The silver is also a great find. But, I'm wondering about both the stars and shield item, and the other ring on the top left. Is that cast tin or lead? Could be something quite old if it is-wondering what the logo is too.

    Best finds: 28 silver dime spill, 1800s Dutch customs seal.
    Oldest/best coins: Late 1700's Chinese Cash Coin, 1837 Upper Canada large cent, 1877 Seated Dime
    Oldest Relic find: 1800 Sailors Luck token

    The other ring is perhaps lead. It has a horse figure on it and there is a broken version in the pic too that has an eagle on it I think. Perhaps cracker jack toys?

    The stars and stripe pin thing states "Home, Guard, National Defense" on it. Not sure how old it is.

    Good guess on being a cracker jack toy, I hadn't thought of that but I think you're correct. As for the shield, judging by the style and the enamel, and the other items you've found in the area, my guess it's likely from in the range of the 1920s-40s.
