Any initials to try to track down? Be very vague with your description when posting.

I definitely will.  No initials,  just a dedication and a date.

What a great story of your first gold find- congrats! That's a  pretty nice weight for your first one too.

You mean you're going to put those two in the ad?  Another approach is to say there is an inscription and date on the inner surface and require the 'loser weeper' to say what it is.  (Maybe that is what your plan was....)

I was just going to say I found a plain gold band with an inscription and a date.  Give me the the inscription, date, and where you lost it, and it's yours. 😇

It was down about five inches, probably been there awhile, so I doubt I'll get any real responses, but if I can return it to the original owner, I will.

Congratulations.

Now that you have heard that sound (the sound of a solid ring) it comes back to you.  You'll be fooled by some bad sounds and get some rings that way too but a 'bong' sound with full body is a lovely sound at the beach and park.  It makes you look at your number and you hope it is uncommon for a coin.

More will follow but nothing like the first nice one.  My first gold ring was a thin band.  You will get 5-10 times as many junk rings as gold.

Great find and I am still looking for my first ring as it is on my bucket list to find one.

Good idea not to say what it is on the ring so that the true owner can identify it properly.

Good hunting and good luck on your next hunt.

Great find, happy for you and hope you keep finding that sound we are all listening for.

      Hi Guys,
      What sort of set up are you guys using on the equinox 800 for gold jewellery in parks etc.
       
      Regards Pinpointa.

      This was on TV in New Zealand tonight about a guy finding a gold sovereign with his Nox worth about $50,000 NZD, about 33,000 USD.  It was an Aussie minted coin.
      The video even has what I see as a typical Garrett user in it 😛  Just kiddin'

      I've been going out irregularly over the last week or so.  There has not been much to show and tell.  Cheap rings and a few coins until today.
      Based upon the tide schedule I've been getting up before the sunrise and getting back early.  Getting up that early doesn't mean you are the first detectorist to the beach.  I took advantage of my senior parking pass and was out and going in a northerly direction which was 'behind' someone digging deep holes.  They were leaving them open.  I knew I would catch up with them and I would be screaming at them so I turned in the other direction.
      I found a nickel.  Long walking without targets later I found a penny.  There was no pattern, waves had been small so there was just a small muddy catch area.  I was headed towards an all night beach where I'd found rings in the past but I've found rings all over these beaches by now.  I got a nice loud signal, a 19 and just about 1" down.  I thought it was a cheap ring and just put it away.  
      I put it in my pouch and walked a few feet before I saw something I had to deal with but that will be a separate post.  After I finished dealing with that glass I was wondering if I would find anything good, the good karma effect but it was only two quarter.
      It did turn out good when I got home and I could see .825 on the ring and it was gold.  Google told me .825 means it is 19k!  It is only 2.2 g but a nice little ring.

      Here were some previous trips.

      Has anybody done better with the Turkish machines on US silver coins in a park setting?
