Pre-last Treasure Hunting trips of 2015

Heya all,
Its only 2 days let till 2016 and i recon i will have at least 1 more outing , so this post will contain all finds in the past 2 weeks to get my totals right :-)

One of signature finds is the a very rare to find 18ct Tiffany&Co rign with diamond!

A shot right from the sand ;-)
But that was not the only cool find on the day- another awesome find was a 9ct MABE Pearl pendant (unfortunately on junk chain)

It was a great day with 2 gold items and total 4 rings!  - 1 gold, 1 silver and 2 junk

Just a day or two after went on another hunt produced another 4 rings!

The rings are 18ct! + 3 junkers.

What is interesting about this 18ct ring is that when i found it- it had correct signal on STX (12-2X)
it had weight to it, but didnt look right. very scruffy greyish corroded color with only small middle bit being shiny.

So had to do several acid tests to confirm , then was told that it probably had a special design surface- when acid applied to give that velvet finish. Glad its confirmed 18ct :-)

Next was one of late night outing that was almost blank till i scored a small band :

And, yes, there were many blank outings like this one:

Or this one: 

Anyway, lets get back to Treasure finds :)

One of interesting outings where i didnt gt any gold, but several artifacts:

- Old lead red hat Lady
- 2 wistles
- Junk ring and a silver bracelet

Next was a Dry sand outing for coins, lucky got a silver ring as well :

And then, BOOM! a triple gold day!

Pity to go to 1 Gold the next Hunting trip ;-)

Ok, One is still ONE GOLD! so i will take it, again :

There is one unsettling feeling that i get time to time- is when i go out with one of my close friends, we use same Machine, same set up, same area, same amount of time ,and  i get 4 rings..:

-2 silver and 2 junk,
While my buddy get only 2, but both gold .... Good for us, we have some days when its reverse :-)

I now call it Undiscovered, unspecified, Unclaimed Ring (UUU ring), like Schrodinger cat- there are always rings somewhere out there, no one knows where, no one knows what type and will know only once unearthed . :-)

And a very last hunt was last night in Dry sand  where i scored 11$ , a watch and couple of junkers:

So pretty good 2 weeks before new years :-)

Junk:      +10
Silver :   +5
Gold:      +8
Keys:      +11
