Default Sterling and some change

Very first target of a 45 min lunch hunt was this earring stamped STERLING. I sorted through the dirt looking for the stone but probably need a sieve of sorts for that, harder with gloves hands.

Found $1.24 in coins and a tiny aluminum St. Benedict medal thing.

HOT out! Happy hunting

It sure sounded awesome for such a little thing! Thanks for the info.

Thanks Jam! I love it when it is stamped “STERLING” as only a few of my finds have been - usually it’s 925 which I won’t knock either but a handful are marked sterling and they just have a little more something about them
