My trips to the beach (1/2 mile) have been sporadic lately and my postings even more so. I just thought I'd show some pictures and ask a 'What is it?' question.
This is an interesting 'A' that I found today marked 14k GF and a 925. Does that mean it is 33% gold with silver? It doesn't look like gold plating.
This is men's wedding band that is the first one that I've found in over a year I would say. It is 5.5g/14k. Don't men wear them any more? I don't wear mine but this one fits. By the way, I found my wedding band on the beach (I used it) and I found a wedding ring that fit my wife (the same night) about two days before I proposed! We've been married over 7 years now.
This is some sort of little 'weight?' If I had to guess I'd say brass but ... It weighs .391 ozt and doesn't match up with any other unit of measure on my scale. The rusty ring in it means it is probably not as old as I might think. Does someone have an idea? It is pretty rough and stretches my imagination that it would be jewelry quality.
These are a couple of little beads. I have no idea of age. I met a guy with a story a few months back and he said he found local native American beads on the beach quite often. He also said he found other things which I know was a 'crock' so I'm left wondering about how old these pieces might be.
This chain was all knotted when I found it. It is pretty well made but I don't know the material yet.
A Chinese coin that I toasted in vinegar ...
This is a rutilated silver quartz ring.
Just an interesting earring.
A silver chain and HEART which is somewhat correct.
A 15 year gold and diamond.
Stainless footprint jug and chain.
Australian 50 cents that was down about 14 inches in dry sand area of the beach.
Silver crystal heart
And finally a stainless cross
Hey y'all, been busy out there but not finding much. Got permission to mow one place so that may change. Most interesting thing was a little cat pin:
Went to one of my original places today, what used to be a racetrack in the 17-1800s. Unfortunately a couple of detectorists spent 3 weeks there every day, and pretty much wiped it out. No one knows what they found. I did get a Merc there in the spring when they turned it.
I grid searched one area hoping I'd find something, dug some clad (about$1.75) and lots and lots of molten metal, turns out the barn there had burned. Today I got another rein guide, parts of a Rogers silverware spoon, and these things that I wonder if any of you recognize:
The first one is nickel plated brass and somewhat larger than the next, about 2" across. It is heavy and has a threaded hole, and on the other side has holes for pins and obviously fits something precisely:
The next one is a bit smaller (about 1-1/2"):
It has the same threaded hole and less pin holes. I'm thinking rein guide boss, but the threaded holes are conical.

I am digging a pond in SE Virginia, have found no rocks in the area, but hit something large and solid, pumped down the pond and found this rock laying on top of a deposit of dark gray clay. Trying to find out what is made of and if it has any value.
