Default More old s##t and some new..Updated

Hey peeps..
Got out for a hunt today only had about three hours. Managed to save a few things. The rocks are exposed higher up on the beach but still under water. Didn't find them untill the last hour of the hunt and ran outta daylight. I'll be back bright and early. I'm manifesting gold as I type. Lol Found a couple interesting objects. A ring with a 48 nickel mounted. Anyone ever find one of these? And an AirForce ID bracelet. There's a name and date 6-7-40. Ooh and a 36 buff nickel.

If the date on the bracelet is correct then it is an Air Corps item, as there was no Air Force until 1948. That would be an extra special item to say the least. Put up some close ups of the thing so I can see the detail. Like the scout ring as well as I have two boys in scouting.

I think the bracelet is called a "sweetheart bracelet" but not totally positive. Nice find for sure!

Hey you were right.. I cleaned the item and it's inscribed AirCorps USA.

Default Artifact trumps two golds..

Hey y'all,
Maan what an epic day!!! The conditions were epic, clear water,a ripple for a wave and it was sunny and warm. lol Sorry East Coasters dont mean to rub it in.Lots of action a good object every couple of minutes. I hit a personal best for silver coins in a hunt and the two buffs blew my mind.The gold was just icing on the cake.Check out the Pride of SaintLouise airplane pin.Anyone every find one of these? Get after it Theirs gold in them there hills...
