What Do You Think It Rang Up At?

Recommended Posts

I got a call early this morning to find a ring for a lady in Oxnard. Big diamond ring, silver is the metal, stamped .925.

By the way I found it haha. Obviously using the nox.

I'm curious what you think the Nox pegged it at.

Probably would depend on orientation in the ground but I’ll guess 17-20.  I’ve seen similar thin silver bands with an ornate top ID in that tab to zinc range on other machines. 

Anyway, good job on the recovery.   I’ve considered joining the ring finders but as I travel for work it probably wouldn’t be worthwhile at this point. Just not home enough to justify the expense.

I am not familiar with "ring finders."  I belong to "lost my stuff," but not familiar with "ring finders."  Is that just a local group, or is it national?  I'd like to join...

Ringfinders is owned and run by Chris Turner. I've got nothing but good things to say about it and him. It's international, there are folks all over the world. PM if you'd like more details.

As for the ring and what it rang up as, a 2/3. The tone was solid but it consistently hit a 2, 3 and then settled on 2. It was in the sand and when it first sounded off I thought foil but I was going to dig no matter what but a 2?

I thought this would help some of you who pass over tones/signals because of the way they sound or more importantly because of the way they SHOULD sound. If this was just me hunting at the beach I'm thinking tin foil all the way and might pass it by. I have no idea why a silver ring would sound off as this one did. Crazy.

THANKS, Skate!  Appreciate the info.

And a 2/3 on that ring?  That makes NO sense to me!  A pull tab of similar shape/size would ring up much higher than that!

Probably obvious, but did you recheck the TID after you got it out of the ground/sand?

Assuming 'yes', my theory is that it is really platinum but the owner had it stamped '925' so the Ring Finder wouldn't be tempted to keep it.  😜

      Not too shabby for an Arizona weekend. (We don’t have the old stuff you others have got in the ground.) Three straight days of detecting yields an 1898 Barber Quarter, 1945 Mercury dime, 1951 Franklin 50 cent piece, Utah state tax token, 13 Wheat pennies, some other trinkets, and a 14k gold/platinum setting diamond ring. Not shown here was also a serial number stamped on a plaque from an 1880s sewing machine and a whole pile of other junk. I’m most excited about the Barber and the 50 cent silver. The quarter was about 6-7 inches down and on edge. It sounded good both ways, but swinging inconsistent numbers on the Equinox 800 in Field 1 with the 15 inch coil. I surmise the yard had been cleaned out before even though the owner thought it had not. That was one of it’s only few coins in 8 hours of detecting it—and the yard was massive. Conversely, the Merc., Franklin, and most of the Wheats came from the another small 8’ by 16 ‘ front yard that took only a couple of hours to detect. The diamond ring came from the old school house. Left by someone else unwilling to dig a repeatable number 12 target. Can’t wait to do it again, but going to need some muscle recovery time from all those lunges and precision digging.

      There's a small stream not too far from where I live that has a smooth rock bed that you can slide down.  So, the other day I took my kids there and I also took my nox.  In fairly shallow (18"), but swift water my third target rang up a solid 12.  I was in park 1.  Got a 2.2 gram 14k ring.  I don't have a scoop yet but I did just order one.

      if anyone has ideas, i would appreciate your knowledge or guesses.  I am pretty sure it isnt plated, but it doesnt ID like a sterling ring would on my detector.
       
      Thanks for your help

      I pulled the trigger on the 15" coil (and 6") and needed to make sure all was OK with it. So, out to the football field again for 2 hours. After hoovering about $3-$4 in change(one hole had 4 quarters and a large chunk of aluminum foil that was really jumpy in the numbers), I headed to the area where my silver chain was found. There was a strong and long signal which showed up as a 9. About 5 inches down came the start of this day's highlight. I had to dig more as it was stretched out underground. Not quite as heavy as the last one, but it was enjoyable seeing another silver chain come back to life. Again, I was using Park 1, ground balanced, 7 recovery, and 20 sensitivity. The coil sure covers ground, and it actually does a good job of picking through the clutter.

      First rings with the Gold Kruzer.
      The anchor ring is rose colored 925 silver.
      The white ring is costume but the stone looks to be real.  It is very pretty.   The camera just doesn't do it justice.  Everyone I show it to tries to keep it.  HA.
      A fun couple of hours. 
      HH
