Default Fun gold with the CZ-21

Took a day off from the Equinox to break out the CZ-21 for some water hunting. Conditions were pretty good with calm seas and some new rocks exposed underwater.

I actually had a good time with the simpler operation of the CZ. No screen to tempt me, no tiny pieces of aluminum to chase, only a little falsing in the moving water and a few hot rocks. Of course I could've missed a nice no pendant chain but it was still enjoyable.

Did pretty well, some junk, mostly big junk, then I got the cool fish medallion only about 3 inches down, the class ring as you can see has been there a while, and was much deeper. Figured I'd get some older coins but mostly just quarters and dimes, still better than pennies

I thought the bottles were pretty cool and could've been old at first, but now I think they are just glorified modern glass Looks like a tiny wine bottle and possibly a nail polish bottle

Thought that key in the bottom middle was pretty interesting as well, I enjoy finding old keys for some reason, might make a framed display with all the old ones I have one day.

The fish is unmarked and is light for its size but I'm pretty sure its gold, but I'm leaning towards it being hollow on the inside. I still like it a lot

Think this old girl might have been in the sand from 1988 Found the initials on it, will try return once I find an old year book.

Thought the "what's it" might be interesting but was just a metal block with a hole in the middle, guessing it was part of a mounting bracket or something.

Looks like a nice days hunt. It's good to go back to the machines you have been used to. I was in SC a couple of weeks ago and took my 3030 instead of the Nox 800. Killed it and enjoyed dusting off old faithful.

Sweet! I agree! Its nice to switch back and forth between a new rig and an 'old' one...it seems to recalibrate a guys ears or something...Akin to doing a 'Factory Reset' on a guys brain in the signal processing dept?...Helps a guy learn the new rigs language/capabilities since you already understand the old ones so well...Its helpful...Nice Finds!..

Nice on those 2 golds with antiquated technology! I've been waiting for my 'Nox to come back to me from my buddy re-doing an issue with headphones. He's had it for a month but unfortunately for me his wife had a baby in between.

Thanks Felix, lol antiquated Hope you get your Nox back in time for the stronger cold fronts.

Thanks, yea, the fish was a nice surprise. At least its a keeper. Returning rings feels good, until you run into annoying logistical issues in getting the ring back to them

Thanks, don't really want to display the goodies so keys make for a good alternative and if no one else likes them, I will, and that's more important to me

It's always more fun when gold shows up to a beach shindig minus the crowd.

Congrats on some sweet finds! Another idea for your keys - a windchime! Cool memories and annoy your neighbors all at once!

I am feeling really old because that's the year I graduated from high school. There are days my body feels as old as the ring looks!

Congratulations on the class ring and good luck with the return - hope it turns out well. Interesting bunch of nasty trash there. You're doing a good service to get that stuff out of the water!

That was a great hunt for sure- congrats! That fish pendant looks like it's at least 14K- nice color!
