Sometimes making a great find is simply a numbers game. Dig enough targets, eventually one will be something good. That’s basically what I did last weekend when I detected for the entire day, and hunted a few different spots. On the way home I remembered a small neighborhood park near where I used to live, so I decided to swing through and detect for an hour or so.
Immediately I started finding clad quarters from the 1980s everywhere, so I assumed that the area probably hadn’t been detected before. Based on the number of targets all over that small park, I said to myself “There is a ring in this park somewhere.”
About 30 minutes later, I got a solid quarter tone, and thought that it might even be a silver quarter based on the slightly higher TID numbers, and about 6 inches down, I was lucky enough to find this honker of a Sterling Silver ring.
The hallmark inside indicates that this is a vintage sterling silver ring, crafted by Clark & Coombs who were well known silver smith at the turn of the century until 1915.
All in all, it was a great day of diggin’ and topped off with a very cool silver ring! Thanks for checkin out my blog!
