WTG Pirate. Nice to see that monogram held up on the stone. All mine fell off.

Nice going Joe!  There’s always something special about the older gold. Great hunt again!

Any initials inside the class ring? I was able to return one to the owner he lost over 50 years ago!

Nice run you had.

      It's been a long dry spell since doing well this spring on the gold. Today I was out with the Nox 15" coil at a local park. This rang up a solid 11-12 in Park 1. Can't find one like it with a movable head.

      Hi everyone 😎 
      Hope y’all are doing well,
       This wasn't the best year personally and as such, I only got to hunt a couple weeks( one hour in early morning and sometime one hour in night) 
      Here’s pics and thank you for reading and looking at my post🙂

        Well, many scientists are confused about the secret and source of geomagnetism. there're many planets much larger than the earth, but they have no magnetic field at all. So, what's the secret behind geomagnetism? about 300 years ago, the queen of England's physician; William Gilbert, said something out of mere geussing, he said "The Earth moves as if it had a magnet within!"
      That was mere guessing, without any scientific proof. Hundreds of years before that, the chinese had invented the compass, it's a chinese invention. Then, the compass was use in Europe, where it had a great role in developing navigation. Yet, people remained confused about why the compass always points to the North. It was suggested the polar star might be pulling it in that direction, which is not logical, because if it were true, the compass needle'd be directed upwards, but actually, it's the apposite; it points downwards. Secondly, a compass doesn't point to the polar star att all. Compass dont point to the polar star and dont point to to the actual geographical North, either, rather, the point to something ele; the magnetic North pole. The difference between both is about 4 degrees.
      The polar star has nothing to do with compasses. 
      So, what's the atory? It has took several years for technology to be progressed enough to allow the establishment of modern geomagnetism observatories where accurate studies are carried out. 
      Later on, Scientists started talking about the center of the earth, where there's a central core of liquid iron, circulating deep down, which is associated with Earth's cycle of movement. That is the liquid iron circulates as Earth evolves. That circulating liquid iron contains convection currents.
      Those currents within that melted, liquid iron, whose temperature is very high, act like a coil which once electricity gors through it can magnetize iron rods in this case, the ferrous earth center gets magnetized, resulting in the Earth acting like a magnet with a magnetic fild, exactly like the magnetism experiments all learn and do at school.

      Hurricane Marie generated some good swells and moved sand at several southern California beaches. I got gold at 2 of the 4 beaches I hunted but not as many targets as I would have expected from the size of some of the cuts. I see that a couple of other forum members also did well from Marie which was an unexpected but welcome surprise.
      After finding a few dollars in clad and a small, 1.8 gram 14K gold ring at the first beach I hunted, I tried a couple other beaches that didn't yield much before driving to beach #4. This beach had a nice deep cut but, again, not nearly as many targets as a cut that size could have produced. Perhaps someone had beaten me to the punch earlier but I didn't see any signs of digging.
      Late in the hunt I scooped out a target and was shocked to see half of a bracelet in the mound of wet sand. It had the famous Cartier circles on the perimeter of the bracelet but I have found so many fakes with those same circles before. The bracelet also had a funny color to it so I tried not to get too excited about it even though it felt pretty weighty and was stamped "AU 750".

      When I got home I realized that the bracelet was rose gold and it  acid tested at 18K. On the internet I found out that Cartier jewelry is one of the most copied in the world but the bracelet seemed to pass all the checkpoints that determine its authenticity including its weight which was half of the typical 30 to 37 grams for a complete bracelet.

      At first I thought that it would be nice to find the other half and have the bracelet repaired. I still would love to find the other piece but it probably won't need to be fixed. The 2 halves are actually screwed together with permanently mounted screws. That's probably why the person that lost it didn't remove it since it is a bit of a hassle to do so. Of course, the downside is that you better make sure that those screws are fastened properly and checked periodically. 
      Sorry for the lengthy post but pretty excited about this one. My hunting friend doesn't think it's likely that I'll find the other half but the way this year is going I wouldn't be totally shocked (well, maybe a little). GL&HH!

      Last night I went to a beach that yielded a lot of targets.  On my 6 hour hunt from 8 PM to 2 AM I got 51 quarters, 40 dimes and nickels, 54 pennies (one wheat), 2 silver rings and one 10k gold ring.  There should have been more rings!  The trash was another 50 pieces or so.  When you figure it is 4-5 scoops per target (1000 total) then it adds up to a stiff back in the morning.
      I found the gold ring 2/3rds of the way through the session about the time the fog started rolling in which made for an enjoyable sight as it covered up the normal lights but there was still a mostly full moon above.  I was using the 15 inch coil and when I started I was down a couple of notches from full power.  I thought there would not be much on the beach but I was wrong and kept pushing along finding some high cuts.  Near the end of the session the detector was nearly out of power and I could hear a lessening in my headphones.
      Something I've wanted to say about the 3.0 update is that it really makes the quarters crackle.  I don't think I remember them like that before and I wish they would be a little more 'solid' but perhaps it is because of the sandwich metals.

      Got out while the water is still warm enough in the ocean for a wet suit, out at chest to chin deep was a slight slope/hole which held old targets. all targets were weak signals except for the new clad on top.
      Best of it was a 9K signet ring from Chester England.      With all the stamps on the inside small portion of the ring there are 2 more on the large portion of the ring witch is solid not hollow.          The small dark coin is a Merc. the other ring is Brass.

      Today 3 Hours and 23 Minutes. tides were low so I went deep...signals were far and few between for over a hour. Decided to move in a few cuts and things picked up. Plenty of coins which are a good sign. Most signals were in the 12 to 14 inch range in a hard shell, sand , clay mix. All gave good signals and I was kind of surprised how deep some were. No faints today..  other then the few I found hunting out deep. Settings volume 8, all metal, delay 11, sensitivity 6, threshold 4 to 5. ATS 6....
      Todays treasure ...one 10k....one 14k..2 silver dimes.
      Batteries coming along, taking each out for a short hunt...then a full charge and shipping... Have 4 going out this week coming. Should be 4 the following week also, so I will be contacting several of you AQ Pirates' on the details. Think I have a list of 15 and should be able to fill all with in the next month, order 56 more 18650 batteries.....Taking a break after that...
