Default Gold ring in the park

Finally got out for a nice long hunt at the local park since we had a thaw last week. Been digging many pull tabs recently without gold until this past weekend. Itís a somewhat ugly ring but it still feels great after digging about 500 bits of aluminum.
Anybody know the stamp next to the 14k? I think the letters are k and b.
Thanks for taking a look- and happy hunting!

Congrats!

Nice to see digging pulltabs pays off sometimes. I was beginning to think people are just playing a joke on those of us who have yet to dig any gold.

I applaud you for your patience !!!! Definitely a trait I don't possess. I can dig maybe 10 pulltabs in a trashy park then it's back to coins. I do dig nickels though so there is a little hope for me. My best luck for gold rings has been in woodchip totlots !!! Congrats on the 14K !!!
