Mixing Pulse And Fbs

Recommended Posts

Hello to all i had another go at the beaches this week end (for me😃)i woke up super early monday (4am) and hit the beach from 4.30 till 8 was able to run the machine hot with a SAT half way the rest on full steam managed only those fragments(see pictures) but so far i am happy with my swing arm and my home made bungee.

In the afternoon went to another beach with the CTX and managed to find a sweet spot in less than an hour but the Darkness and Madame waiting in the car made me abort the session i fully pumped ,so result 2 rings seemly old pink gold and silver i guess i also found a fishing weight 10 cm from the silver ring so was super hopeful for the next day

Next day i brought the G5c but the weather was terrible i was fully gear but the running water under the coil made detecting very difficult even with the SAT lowered..........tide was going to be low late and the "sweet spot " is surrounded by mudflats......and i was sinking fast with all my gear so .......i aborted after 1 hour with only a copper bit

 

Here are the pics enjoy!!

That looks like 18k rose gold, did you test it?

What material is that old ring on the bottom pic? I found similar ones out here and thought they are bronze.

Good finds

It may be 18k  no I have tested wife keep telling me to invest in a kit I shall oblige soon............:) the other is silver I cleaned it a bit and I can read silver inside .........funny thing is I got a gold ring found on the Thames with a similar partern and no one can date it...........some say Roman other said foreign(like India.............) if it is roman it could worth a lot more ..................

 

Any way now I need to wait till next Monday as I am back in London may do 1 or 2 session on the River

I got a test kit, was pretty cheap $24 usd included platinum and silver along with 2 stones and a jewelers loupe that will make your eyes cross if used too long.... again was only $24 usd :)

Some the old old rings around here go back 1700's and even 1600's and look to be bronze. Probably commoners rings I guess but many don't seem to have marks on them and badly worn. Think I had posted a pic of a couple earlier this year.

925 silver and higher shouldn't tarnish, dug an old cross that looked like new that tested at 999 silver. Thought it was tin because it was fairly soft but was wrong on that.

That ring looks like rose gold, recently found a charm with diamond chips in it that had pretty close to the same color and it tested at 18k. If that was plated you would see bubbles and any scratches would reveal the base metal. Plated stuff is pretty easy to spot.

      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.....
