Couldn't post right away last night, so doing it today :-)
Dale and i went on our very last hunt last night and decided to do just a simple Slope detectign rather than any dry,wading or water detecting.
Was VERY VERY windy with lots of kite riders around (looks so cool).
As for the targets - Thsi beach is very hard for detection- its has trillion of Aluminum blobs that sound like rings :-( and another ton of lead (not sinkers) but actual pieces of lead.
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:
