Nice finds.  That bracelet includes an unusual name spelling, wonder if you could track down the owner with a little research on the name combination.

Nice digs, love that old ring!  Those mercs look like they've been out there a long time.

Well done school and well reported.  Sometimes there are macro clues and sometimes there are micro clues.  When I find a patch I sometime see if I can find a better one before I return to the only one that is producing that day.

Thanks everyone. My wife informed me that if that ring had actually fit her finger, it would be hers right now :ohmy: So far most of my rings have been small :laugh: The Mercury dimes were in a constantly wet area. They develop this huge black crust all over them. We call them "cookies" around here. They continue to disintegrate from the inside out until there is nothing left of them. When you crack them open you can see the imprint of the coin design on the part that breaks off. Eventually they just degrade to nothing. Chase, if I put out a message showing that chain, I would have a hundred people a day telling me that those are their kids names :rolleyes:. Unfortunately it would be hard to find the real owner.  I finally gave up trying to return the half carat diamond ring I found that had a serial number on it. Zales said they do not keep track of those numbers....it is the buyers responsibility to contact the lab that engraved it. In other words they don't care, just buy another ring from them. Sad but true.

Some collect insurance and don't want the original back!

You're right, highlighted the quote in the wrong post. See revised post below.  My apologies.

      Well my Sand Shark is about finished so time to shop for a new dedicated (salt water ) beach detector. This machine will be dedicated to wet sand and/or surf only environment. Currently considering the ATX and TDIBH,, any suggestions / input would be appreciated.............Thanks!

      Hello all, as some of you may know, I’m a very keen water detectorist and the Equinox is my go to water hunting machine BUT, last year after about 40-50 hours of water detecting my Equinox did end up flooding from normal (not exceeding 3m) use.
      From what I have read, this doesn’t appear to be entirely unusual.  My suggestion is a waterproof case for the machine that can still let you to do all the normal things with your Equinox whilst adding little weight.
      I understand this isn’t for everyone but can I get a show of hands for who would like something like this and what it would take for you to consider it?
      At this point the idea is purely just an idea but if there is enough perceived interest I may just make a handful 👌
      Cheers, Ed

      I know areas where rings have been lost and, to my knowledge, not found.  I understand a strong storm will relocate a ring.  I also wonder if a ring is lost in 3 foot of water during the low tide, will it eventually work it's way up the beach?  I believe that a man's gold ring will sink in the sand to a harder layer of shells or clay (hard pan layer).  It will remain there until a force of water pushes it either up or down.   I also realize there are small lower pockets of these hard pan layers that cause lead weights and rings to gather as if they were in a concave bowl.   My friend says that through time the rings will be moved higher up with the seasonal sand movements and eventually make it to the wet sand of the b
      I wish there was a way to test items in the surf for verification.
      Your thoughts?

      Hi all,
      I've been doing a bit of reading on strategies for detecting at the beach and some general advice I've found is to go where there are areas of erosion or where the sand is lower.  At a local beach I go to, there is no tide. Does that mean the rings sink to the bottom only to remain inaccessible? Do you think its better to skip water detecting at these beaches in favor of ocean beaches with more current?

      Hit a small local beach this morning around low tide. Had heavy thunder storms and decided to see what might have been deposited. Using an Equinox800. This side of the beach typically for the last year has been encumbered by seaweed. So not many bathers. But it being NE, I figured maybe something had been made detectable. All I found were a couple of rusted metal spots, which funny, did not sound like iron with no discrimination. In the pools, using Beach 2 had several targets that showed 12-11. but couldn't recover Also showed with handpointer. Weird day! For those that have had more experience beach hunting, I noticed that the beach a striations in the sand and a few pools of water which I attempted. Sand was some what firm, not black . I will try to attach a couple of photos to get your opinions I usually have been a ground type detectorist and started beach hunting last year. Not good yet at reading the beach
