One 18k Art Deco ring...1930's, Diamonds and looks like it had blue stones that filled in the gaps.. one remains. 😢 Five Silvers, and a few other time period pieces...Almost 4 hours out..Jelly fi

More EPIC finds OBN ! I have a couple of those old silver pendants as well. You must dig some fairly deep holes to use as some markers for your previous hunts. Here in the bays , they fill in pretty f

After the storm was over here in PA I was in the water too, Pumping 15'' of water out of my basement. You had much better luck than I did. Great job on the deco ring!! If the price was right I would r

Did the tropical storm have a significant impact on your areas?  I seem to recall you saying that since you hunt a bay, often the stroms don't affect you much.  I assume that is because the bay is protected from the surge from storms offshore.  This one went right over the top of you?

Nice finds (as always) and I look forward to your future hunts in this same area with the Fisher Impulse.

      Joe, 

   Great finds! Cool ring! Those coins are encrusted the same, and conditioned the same, as the walking half i found earlier this year in fresh water!  Too bad they don't hold up better! But the ring is in great condition!

If it's real Art Deco,(maker's mark??) should definitely be more valuable than melt! It should be a keeper!!👍👍

I would not say significant but it did impact the first beach some, I record the real time winds, water level and storm location ever 30 minutes from 9am to 3pm during it's passing right over us...Now it's time to see how my recorded stats play when compared to what I find.

Thanks Joe.........Sad about the silver for sure but it does add to the melt silver going in...last weight on that was 2450 grams....No makers mark on the ring, other then a fineness mark. No doubt Art Deco...just wish the blue stones were still in it...then it would really be stunning. I found a similar on line if I find it again I show how the blue stones really set it off...

  The right buyer, or  a good jeweler. Will have it reset with stones of their liking! But a comparison picture to go with it couldn't hurt!

    Have an appraisal, maybe a reputable jeweler that deals in antique jewelry can identify the maker by workmanship alone!

   I'm sure I'm not telling you anything you don't already know! Just thinking out loud!! No offense! Love the stuff you find!!👍👍

      WInds and tides have been bad the last week along with other projects keeping me busy. So to mix the project side of it I took CDV's battery out for a test spin Weds.
      Not a lot of targets but scored the 10k Class ring early. As soon as I walked out I got a buffalo, small medallion then the gold ring. The AQ seems to dislike silver even in All metal mod...but loves nickels..both medallions are brass. 
      Gold #22 for the AQ..depth on the 8.4 10k I could have sworn 2 feet but measured around 16 inch's..

      Found this tiny 1.1 gram 18K in the wet sand over the weekend. Looks like diamond chips all around the band but too small to test.

      Tried a different lake today and only found a couple of dollars in clad but got my 6" coil over another gold chain. Shockingly to me, this one was also closed up and rang up a solid "1" TID. I had company as 2 other hunters got within 20 feet of me in a swim area that was ,at least, an acre in size. Seems like bad form to me but at least the one guy moved away when I said something to him. I didn't say anything to the other since I had just found the chain and crucifix which reminded me to be a little more tolerant and he moved on a short time after. 

      Loving the Nox for fresh water and wished I felt the same way about at the beach but those "Beach" modes on the Nox just aren't working for me- yet. GL&HH!

      Thought id throw up a couple more finds from the month.   Things have kept me out of the water the past 3 months...... then we had the storm.   Seems everyone went home now as well so we are just getting locals and a handful of tourists now.   Still busy with hunters with our warm water.....so its getting picked clean.   Got more young guys getting into it with the local FB page now as well who are doing pretty well.

      Found a beautiful little diamond ring, probably CZ. It says Avon sterling but there is a little chip that looks like it’s plated. Does anyone know if Avon sterling jewelry is .925 silver?

      Some beach erosion and high waves from Sally brought these into detector range. One silver and 3 gold. Two are 14K, and the other is 10K.  About 8 hours total over 2 days. Three rings on the first day and one on the second day. I went back on the third day and all was sanded in again. I don't know what the gemstone is in the ring. Not a diamond. Bob K
