The Farmland almost claimed the Ring, ALMOST

Got a call from an upset person that while working in the paddock, Ring slipped off :-(

Lucky for  me i had half a day off and also person kindly agreed to pick me up for the recovery.

Spent about an hour around the area where person worked in 10 inch tall grass,

And Bingo!

2015 Round up, part 1 : Junk Rings

Last Treasure of 2015- Dec 31 gold

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.

Have a look at this short video :-)

The ring:

Gold:      +1

Total Rings: 292   Precious: 172

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  

Total Rings: 291   Precious: 171
