Default Silver and Gold Surprise!

Went beach hunting with forum member Romy last night. Hurricane Sergio moved some sand and we were finding coins but we just weren't finding the good stuff- or so I thought. Today as I was looking through my finds I was pleasantly surprised to find 2 silver dimes, a Kokopelli pendant and an 18K gold earring. I might have noticed last night but I forgot my headlight which sure made things more challenging.

This is the smallest gold I have found with the Equinox so far- it weighs .7 grams. Still looking for that 1st gold chain with the Nox but feel that I'm getting closer.
On another note, I met a FMDF visitor, Gary, yesterday. Nice guy and skilled hunter. GL&HH!

Nice tiny find, all things considered that's got some decent weight!

Thanks Felix, No markings so I'm not sure what metal it is but I like it too!

Thanks Z, When I thought I had been skunked it was nice to see a little gold shining among the coins, trash and sand.

Thanks Dog! I think I've found about a dozen medals and pendants with the Nox but no chains yet.

Thanks GS, Me too! This is twice in the last month, the other surprise being that silver Tiffany & Co. ring.
