Default Sunday's best

Hit a local park this past Sunday for three hours. Temps were at freezing with light snow.
Found three silver rings and a 1944 silver Swiss two franc under the white lining. I also pulled just under 83 francs. The fourth ring pictured on the right is a white gold band I found on my previous hunt.

Man, I love that tigerseye ring! I just found some swiss franc coins in the local coinstar. I thought they were French until I googled it.
You're doing really well!
Congratulations.
