Default STRUCK GOLD! Old and Fancy! Beautiful!!

Week before last I pulled out my detectors for the first time in years. Hit a big silver ring first time out and a merc dime. Been down sick for days with a cold, decided tonight with about 1.5hrs till dark that I'd go over and hit a old swimming hole that was closed to the public back in the 60's, found some decent silver coins there before, but man the coins are toasty coming out of 50-100 yrs of sitting in the sand. Thru my loop down and hit coins right off the bat. Doug 12 coins and never moved but once. Found old bracelet. Chain was toasted, but name tag was good, cleaning now, but looks to be pretty smooth, probably wont get much off that. As you can tell those coins take some cleaning, haha and after looking I got one merc dime and one rosie dime, both silver, but we will see on managing to get any dates. So anyway it was getting just about dark and my last hole I had pulled out a coin then searched the hole again and got a hit on my pin pointer. Doug down till with my hand till my pin pointer was below ground level and threw out a couple more big hand fulls of sand and no noise in the hole. Touched my dig pile and sure enough it was out and in the pile. Then I found it. Thought it was a coin at first, but seen the edge shinning and then stuck my finger thru it and put it away to look at when I got home. Rinsed it under water and it shinned like it did when new. Its a 14K gold man's band from way back and it has got the fancy on it. Any way nice little hunt for 1.5 hrs.
