Fantastic hunt you have had for the last day in 2020, I can't wait to see what you come up with in 2021.

Thanks for the picture of the sunset as it was beautiful.

Good luck, good hunting, and God bless 2021 for you.

Thanks for the report Mitchel and congrats on the rings. That big silver one will be awesome when cleaned up! I also got out yesterday- what a beautiful day and sunset! I really enjoyed the hunt even though I didn't do nearly as well as you.

Happy New Year

Your adventures inspire me.

I was hoping for one last gold for the year but it wasn't to be.  I think with more time there was one there in my grid pattern.  I really had to slow down with the 11 to catch the sounds.  For a while during this hunt I felt 'naked' without the 15 because the target stays under the coil longer so I can hear it.  The 11 can punch deep.  The last ring was down in the wet sand 10 inches or so.

It is been a while since I saw the word 'sterling' in a ring.  Is that any age indication?  There is no .925 mark on the ring.

Congrats on a beautiful last hunt!

 

FWIW—  Wife thinks the "open" ring is a Ear Cuff. She also thinks she recognizes the maker of big ring. She claims that they use synthetic opals. Didn't stop her from buying three of their rings... LOL

Thats funny you ask because I've often wondered the same...most of the older silver  jewelry I find (old home sites/ towns/resorts) almost always says sterling on it. Thats a nice honker silver ring you got there post a pic of when you clean it up.

Thanks for the info.  There are a couple of maker marks.  I'll try to get a picture before I clean it.  I thought this material looks like synthetic turquoise.  It looked much better wet because that hid some of the scratches.

As to the ear cuff, I'd never heard that term before and I looked it up.  I'll give some thought to it but it might be too heavy itself.  That piece weighs 9.4 grams.

Here is a picture of the makers marks with my new phone!  I could never do this with the old one.

The wife is right!  What do I know.  haha 

Written inside of the ring it says 925 but it also has the word cuff which I can't make come out clearly with a photo.  You can bend the open end ring closed and make it tighter.

      So I'm still trying to milk the same cow 😄 I figured until it stops spitting silver on me, I will continue to ask for it. Long day at the beach 8:30-5:00, but the weather was decent, as I dress well for the cold. I'm getting to be a delicate flower in my advancing years 🤔 I'm using the GPX all day for this hunt and digging select areas and removing all iron so I can hear the deep targets.I hit a patch that started producing exclusively wheat pennies, so I knew that the chance for silver was very possible.  It did produce some silver but the ratio was mostly pennies. Moving over just a bit, the wheats turned into memorials and the clad followed as well. Not a bad day with 8 silvers, but I worked harder than usual for it.The beach is slowly sanding in and the easy stuff is gone. No gold again, but switching the timings on the GPX did start getting me a lot of nickels, including a handful of Buffalo. Jewelry was missing as usual, but the spoons sure weren't lacking 🙄 So here is everything I dug. Lots of junk too. It was great to get out and enjoy the hobby.

      Hello to all ,went to a secluded beach today,just to make sure i knew how to detect again it wasnt warm but sunny,and my fishing jacket kept me nice and toasty.As i got the luxury to have 3 times more digging tools than arms,i choose a spade for a change over a scoop.A cheap spade i bought on a road trip a while back when my old one broke and i just fitted a new shaft which i oiled with linseed oil 3 times.Anyway a lot of walking and gridding,the nox is my to go machine when i am back after a while especially with those long lockdown period.
       
      Lots of coast fight remains as you can tell fro the pictures a nice brass cross alas.......and a 1919 coin were the oldest find.
       
      Funny enough the cross bare the name of Saint Anthony of Padua ,which is the saint to pray to when something is lost......................well i found it.
       
      Will try to go out tomorrow,to see if i can find more bullets
       
       
      Enjoy

      We out a couple of days ago and as usual found something strange.  I believe it is a "replica" or "counterfeit" Draped Bust Silver Dollar.  When it came out of the surf it was just a rusty disc.  I was going to just toss it but my ole hunting buddy talked me into cleaning it up a bit out of curiosity.  It is the same diameter as a silver dollar.  It only weighs 12.6 grams.  It does have a reeded edge.  I could make out part of UNITED STATES  but the font was larger than a regular silver dollar.  It appeared to have a shield with eagle wings on the reverse.  I could make out a lady facing to the right.  And 17?? for the date.  Attached are some pictures for your viewing pleasure.  Note: not sure why the pictures are upside down and sideway.

      Only found a sinker and some clad but was able to snag this nice shot as the tide was going out. Rare to see this area without wind and figured I would share.
