Nice ring. I rarely find platinum. I think I've only found 2 platinum rings.

Gotta love the platinum. For once I caught prices right and cashed in a little over two ounces back where platinum got over $2000 and ounce.

Congratulations on a great find!

Wow, great find, what did it ID at? I assume you were using the Nox?

Thanks for the kind words everyone. Simon I didn’t look at the numbers because I was using the XP Deus in beach mode with the x/y screen graphic loaded.

The line in the x/y graphic went from the upper right quadrant down to the lower left quadrant. That indicated a good target so I dug and was rewarded. Any detector would of found it though. I was just very fortunate to have swung the coil over it.

Thanks, if you can wave it in front of the Nox one day that'd be handy, I'd like an idea of where something like that would fall.

      Was out today using the 15" on a local softball field. Park 1, 18 sensitivity, all metal, 7 recovery speed, 0 iron bias, ground balanced.
      Granted, I could have found this with my first detector, an Ace 100, but the 15" on the Equinox sure covers the ground. This ring was at most 1" deep. I knew it was either a few quarters or a silver ring. I was just thinking today as I was detecting before finding this that my silver ring count was low; I have found more gold than silver. Ironic. And no, I am not complaining.😉

      I haven’t been getting out as much compared to last year.  This is my first gold for the year and first silver (1858 seated dime). I got to the beach at 5 am for low tide and surprisingly I was the only Detectorist out there.  Maybe the slight rain and the lack of sand movement kept everyone else at home.  There were almost no targets on the wet sand but somehow I managed to snag this 14k bracelet. The silver dime, Indian head and most coins were from a spot that has given up a few oldies in the past.  Good luck out there and HH.

      I recently returned from a MD’ing trip to Cancun and the 3 of us used Minelab Equinox detectors.
      Finds included 100’s of coins, probably 10+ pairs of sun glasses, with 1 of them being Ray-Bans, 2 cell phones, numerous ear rings with 1 of them being 14K gold and another was a diamond stud.  Chains, bracelets and metals, some broken and others hole.  Over 30+ rings with many sterling, a few of the modern Tungsten and Stainless wedding bands and even gold rings (both white and yellow gold).  2 rings really popped out that were both 14K gold.  One was the blue sapphire with diamonds and the other a wedding ring with a nice 1+ karats of diamonds.  Even the 1st time lady digger scored a nice 14K white gold wedding band with a couple cool sterling rings.  I managed 21 of the 30 rings so I won't complain but the amount of gold was certainly off my standards.  Pic of rings on my hand were the ones I found minus a sterling that broke when being tumbled.
      We all enjoyed the warm weather, water and experience.  The Equinox detectors performed as hoped.
      Used Beach Mode #1, GB on, open screen by pushing the Horseshoe, SENS around 17 to 19 and Threshold so I can hear it.  All other settings were FP.
      What amazes me is the gold to modern metal ratio.  The resorts I hunt used to produce more gold than modern metals and now it has flipped.  in years past, I'd come back with 15 or 20 gold rings on a weeks hunt and never a modern Stainless or Tungsten.  Now it seems I'll get more of them than I actually do the gold ones?  Well the wife still likes going down there so I might as well get used to it and realize 5, 6 and 7 Gold ring days are long gone at those places.  Guess I'll jump into a lake and follow BeechNut around as his gold ring counts are still good.

      Out for 5 hours, 6 gold rings, 7 silvers. Was tracking a storm crossing the midwest late last week and into the weekend. Luckily it was just the right winds and I was able to catch one very good lowtide.
      Most of the Gold was stained bad , been under many years. One very interesting gold is the band..OB three crowns then 14k, a rare early years Ostby Barton. The real question for me this hunt is I found a very small gold ring, I think it was gold, Some how and some where she is still in the Bay I believe. Think it got stuck to my glove as I was putting it in my pouch, Got it on video..just not the full shot of it going into my pouch. Had this happen before, should have been more careful. Lesson learned..  
      Over all had a great time, got workout and found treasures. The Excalibur is doing it's job and hopefully by summer we will see the "AQ" as my clean up machine.

      Busy learning the Multi Kruzer and been picking up some nice stuff that was missed. Silver ear ring was from local park as I was looking for gold ear ring a lady had lost the other day.
      Today I found an old bullet, mid/late 1800's was about a foot deep. Running the MKK at 14khz 4 tone and just kicked up the disc to 15 and gain to 95. Amazing how deep that machine goes!
      The beat up quarter is 80's I think, also pretty deep for some reason.
      Prize for the day was the Sterling St. Christopher Protect Us pendant. I'm not a religious but almost seems like a sign of some sorts in these days. The pendant was pretty shallow in hard pack gravel path.
      Machine works really well for relic hunting in the woods. The smaller coil with incredible depth is perfect for these parts. So far the 14khz seems to the best frequency for coins and relics. The 19 khz is excellent in 3 tone mode and shallow trashy park hunting. I found not much difference in depth between 5 and 14 khz yet but find the vdi a little vague in 5.

      Yesterday's gold ring was found on the second dig of the day. Today's was literally the first dig of the day. It was in the grassy area where people sit and eat concession food by the fields I hunt around home. It was a 10-11 on the display, and I was using the same settings as yesterday. It is 14K.
