Default New year gold and my first barber dime!

Man, I am super stoked about that barber. Thank goodness I had the presence of mind not to scour it with sandy fingers cause I can just barely make out the date as it is. 1901. Gold ring is 14k and has 9 little diamonds. Haven't weighed it yet but it is very thin. Got the silver ring on the previous hunt but thought I would throw that in too

Congrats on the gold and the Barber! Funny but I dug a Barber on a dirt hunt at my wife's school some years before I would ever find my 1st Merc on a beach hunt.

Barb's are hard to find in California! I have only one also and from a beach.
Looks like Tom is missing out on the beach gold!
Someday I will drive down there to Carmel/Monterey and find a big fat gold chain, ring and diamonds...Maybe?
