So I went back to my honey hole where I found the silver and platinum last weekend. I detected in a different area and after about an hour of not finding much, I decided that maybe it would be better if I went back to the area that produced so well for me last week.
I worked along a gravel path and was finding the usual clad and trash. Mostly pennies with pop tabs and foil mixed in. As you can see from the picture, I was digging it all above iron and dug my fair share of trash targets.
Another 30 minutes had passed when I got another good signal, and since I was digging it all, I decided to dig that signal too. About 4 inches down I was rewarded with this 14K Diamond and solitaire ring! It’s dainty, and I think that it is part of a stackable set, with this part being the centerpiece.
As they say, those who find the most gold dig the most trash, and that proved to be true in this case!
Another cool find was this button. I don’t think that it is real old, but it is a neat find. I haven’t found many buttons in this field, so when I saw this one I got excited.
Here is a shot of the recent clad that I’ve found there in the last two hunts. The silver colored coins were tumbled and this is from just a small area. The earring in the picture is what we call Nitro. You know, the kind of find that makes you almost have a heart attack until you realize that it isn’t real…lol
I have a hunt planned at a historic school that was in operation from 1930’s to 1960’s so I have high hopes of finding silver coin #3 and hopefully even more! Who knows what could be there, but I’ll be sure to let ya know!
All in all this was a great hunt. I mean anytime you find gold is a good day!
