An Old Ring

You know that old saying “Be careful what you wish for because you just might get it?”  I had forgotten about that saying when I was at the park last weekend.

This was the same park I had found the gold West Point class ring earlier this year, a stainless steel ring that was missing a stone,  and a junker “Friends” ring a couple years back but all I was finding last weekend was clad.

After about 30 minutes of diggin modern coins, I was getting frustrated and said “Man, I just want to find an old ring or something.”

I guess I should have remembered the ole “careful what you wish for saying” because that’s exactly what I found, an “old ring.”


Man this has to be one of the ugliest rings I have ever seen, and certainly the ugliest one I’ve ever dug!

I did have two other rings that I found while detecting to show you, but I seem to have misplaced them… maybe someone with a metal detector could help me find them? LOL

They’re around here somewhere.  I’ll show ’em to you when I find them, again! 😛

    Yeah, like disc440 said, but next time say, “Man, I wish I could find a 4 karat, platinum, wedding band.”

    I was wondering where in the Ozarks you are? I’m fairly new to the hobby and I have a Technetics Gamma 6000 (I think) and a handheld. I have a friend who owns 300 acres near Lamar, Mo. I went to the site, dug up a bunch of nails and scrap metal. The land appears to have several old homesites on it as we have found several wells and pottery shards all over the place. The day we went was Africa hot so we didn’t stay long. I’m looking for someone I return to site with more experience than I. The site has never been dug an I think it could be very rewarding. In return for access, I’d like someone to help me identify better targets and split anything valuable we find. Let me know if you are interested.
