Default Short hunt yields silver pendant

Got off work early today and found this stuff in 1-1/2 hour hunt. I thought the ring might be gold, but it says "AVON" on the back. Also thought that quarter in upper left was silver, but it's a 1970 All in all a nice short hunt for me before the snow starts falling here.

Nice finds there NCtoad! Wish I could get out for 1 1/2 but everything is frozen out here and I am missing the hunt.

Actually, I found this stuff on a small beach on a lake near where I live. They've lowered the lake about 8' or so to do repairs to the dam.

Yeah? I believe I know that exact place! South of the highway a little? I scoped it out via satellite when I was down there like we talked about but never got down and into it.....I could see the dam and a little swimming beach area though and considered it heartily...We get a lot of SS gear off and around docks up here too, the bummer is, those washers and nuts can and do sound exactly the right Gold signals! Every once in a while, BOOM!...Nice work there Toad!

Yep, I was hoping for gold. Only spent about an hour and a half there, but I'll be back there hitting it hard as I have a nice little remodel job on a condo about 3 minutes from the beach
