Default Silver #108 is From the 1800's. And Dirt Gold (Barely)

Went back to the curbstrip area that I dug 7 silvers from yesterday. Managed this deep, 1898 Six Pense. That was a surprise! Never would have guessed that one.

Also found a really nice sterling ring with a gold heart. Just a touch of dirt gold, but I'm counting it.

Thanks for looking.

A quick search on Ebay. I found the same ring. Seems a little over priced?

Wow what a great hunt! I found a six pence a few years ago and shocked me also. That ring is stunning, it is not over priced at all. A lot of the vintage sterling/gold rings can fetch a hefty price. Big congrats on the awesome hunt !!

Couple awesome digs there! I'd be happy to get half that price for that ring, but then I would regret not getting much more. It is a great ring! Congrats on the 1800's silver too!
