Same here in New England. I dig more than most hunters here, but I learn a lot from it too.

Thanks Phrunt the place I got it at is loaded with bottle caps in all different stages of decay...I've probably dug well over a thousand at this spot over the years. That was my second gold ring at that spot so it finally paid off...it's the biggest gold ring I've found to date...

That's the sort of ring I'd find here due to it's ID numbers, even cherry picking $1 and $2 coins I'd find that one.  They come up 21/22 on the VDI's so I dig either side of that obviously.  It's how I found my Lord of The Rings One Ring which was 18k and about 14 grams I think, it came up 20 from memory, virtually the same as a $1 coin.  I was never going to miss it.

My 1.2 gram gold nugget came up as 15 on the VDI's so it just goes to show the bigger the gold nugget or more gold in a ring the higher the VDI's, it can easy get to the 20's.

I'd never seen that post, I'm a bit surprised by it, finding it pretty hard to believe, our beaches are pretty empty of people... but then again we have some freezing cold water that is bound to make any finger shrink and the rings fall off ?

Maybe the North Island is a bit different to the South, I'd never been up that way other than an airport stopover.  North Island people have a 3rd eyeball I'm told.

The guy was probably first to use a detector on the beaches with finds since European settlement.... very few detectorists here.

That is a very nice find. I hope you find many more.

It seems people here are too poor to drop rings. Not even found a silver coin yet.. LOL

      Same football field as the tape player today. This came in a faint 28 on the Nox with the 15" in park 1. I was using 17 sensitivity and it caught it as deep as the Garrett Carrot is long. First one of these I've found, too.

      The last time Steve H and i hunted together in Hawaii, i banged in this beauty and he banged in Two.. Always fun to hunt with Steve,  he's a real detectorist.....

      This thing was just a whisper and quite deep (a little over a foot) about midway between high and low tide lines.  Heard the faint sound of a tone and number i hadn't seen before (high tone, 34ish, Nox800).  Gold plated silver Russian St George religious ring.

      These are a few i found in various places, Hawaii, UK, and Ak..The silver ring is pretty old, i found it in a plowed farm field in the UK, it was basically flattened out, when i got back to Ak i took it to a jeweler friend and he reshaped it and made a repair...Hawaii is a gold ring paradise did manage to return a couple of wedding bands but for the most part its impossible...

      Well, I can say, I almost gave up on this 14k gold earring and sterling piece.  The detector (Equinox 800, park 2) kept telling me it was there but my pinpointer was not so sure until it actually touch it.  The color of the ground and the fact I didn't have my glasses on proved to be a difficult task in locating these two precious items.  Just remember if the detectors says there is something there don't give up until you know what it is.  The second photo was a blast in recovering all those sterling pieces.  And then the old button, very ornate.

      Im still a newbie to this hobby but  I try to take in as much knowledge as as I can from all of the more experienced prospectors on this board. I've learned a lot in the last 3 years from some of you fellas and to that I am greatful. That being said I stumbeled or should I say my wife stumbled upon a new method of unearthing gold the other day. She was taking a lunch time walk around the lake where she works and noticed a duck pecking at something shiny near the waters edge. The curious bird eventually tired of playing with or trying to eat the shiny object so Lisa went down to investigate  and found a nice gold chain and pendant. It tests 10k with acid. Included is a photo of the pendant and a short video that demonstrates what one might "look for"  when employing this new technique of finding gold. I realize that the video is of geese but the same method applies to ducks. Some of the members of this board are snowed in right now and I hope you find this post useful. You might want to turn some music on when watching the video.....
