Great save on the rings and looks like you had some fun digging the rest of the stuff.

Good luck on your next hunt.

I've been busy with some other detecting lately out in the deserts.  I like those nuggets and meteorites.  You can kind of target those and know what you'll get.

When you go to the beach (just like a park) you can get coins, relics and jewelry.  Today's best finds were a couple of rings.

The first was a stainless steel ring found after a couple of hours of mostly nothing except those tent stakes.  My beaches have been very stingy the last few weeks so I was glad to get it.  I slowed down with the 11/800 and began to find 'patch' stuff.  I like patches.  I grid them and just enjoy having a few targets together rather than long walks always.

My clues were that I was out on a pretty low tide and things were seemingly deep for the 11.  I'm normally a 15 user but the 11 was on and I didn't expect much and was back to where I started when I got the stainless steel ring.  It says 316L and weighs 6.7g.

I continued on just above the black sand line and found other coins and stakes and then I heard a faint 'penny' or it could have been.  I made it down a full scoop (6") and it was still in the bottom of the hole.  A couple of more scoops, around 10" I got it out.  It was a nice shine for the early morning.

This is a 10K with lots of little diamonds.  It weighs 7.8 grams.  My first gold ring in quite a while and first one with the 11" in even longer.  I'm ready to take the 3030 out this week with the 17" and see if I can renew a liking for it and look at some of my old find points.

That glow on the scoop at dawn..aghh what a feeling!.

And more after a job well done.

 

I still think that the Nox 800 has life, and when "it's hot" together with good hands, it gives brilliant results!...

Beautiful piece and heavy.

Congratulations.

Nice HONKER!!!

Question> Equinox correct?  Can you not tell those stakes are ferrous?

Equinox yes.  And it is possible to tell but it is easier to dig rather than miss something.

The stakes by their shape want to give off a 'quarter sound' or high pitched 'dig me' so that is what you do to get the trash out of the way and see if they are masking something better.
