    nice . 8)

    Congrats on the silver! I have yet to get out and find some this year. Thanks for sharing! Excellent woodchip finds; I do that often with my daughter but have very little luck. :-\

    Please your Shiekness |)
    Could you please grant me some of your all knowing wisdom? |) lol
    I'm seeing so many nice pieces of jewelry here on the forum. I'm curious what type of reading were you getting from the earring? Penny/dime, quarter, or lower? I know different types and shapes and material will give different readings. I've been pounding these soccer fields like some of the other members have and I'm striking out left & right I'm pretty much digging everything anyways but I'm just curious

    All knowing wisdom .........me ? <} Man, you sure dialed the wrong number . rofl In the tan barks and on the beach I pretty much dig everything also . That earring was about 5deep where the chips where packed in the soil below and not far from the metallic base of a plastic slide . It wasn't so much the
    number reading as the sound it made it sounded like a zinc penny but way less raspy and I believe the reading was zinc 62 and yet just a little while ago when I layed the earring on top of some bare ground in my back yard I got consistent 42 tab/ring readings and it sounded nowhere near the sound it made on the original dig . The ring read the same with that same test as the original dig going from dime81/quarter82 . I was using the 6x10 DD coil .I did not include all the different size and shaped pieces of foil that I dug on that hunt in the pictures either .I'm living proof that if you dig enough crap you will eventually find something good .Most of my jewelry over the years has been found in tot lots .
    I'm not doing well at all pulling silver coinage out of the dirt lately ( my first love) , not one silver coin for this year yet and only one wheat . I have a feeling that if I ever find a gold coin it's probably going to be on a chain at the beach or a tot lot , that's ok I'll take it .Sorry I couldn't be of much help . Just keep swinging that coil you'll find some good stuff . thumbsup01

    No.... thumbsup01 Thats exactly what I wanted to know!
    I was wondering if that earring , even thou it's made of silver, would ring up lower than a dime or penny/dime reading. And I figured it might since it has all those little pieces and wire I'm going to a pretty big suburban soccer field and I want to know what to look for. I'm going to be out of my realm. Since I primarily hunt old houses. And now my suspicions were confirmed.....dig everything and sort out the goods as you go!! rofl lol
