Default Beach Hunting/dirt digging

Well I went beach hunting and dirt digging. I hit a 4 grams 14k gold ring beach water hunting and some clad... The 1906 Indian head penny was beach dirt hunting & more clad and a set of toy hand cuffs and buttons.

Congrats on the nice finds! That ring looks rounded even on the inside...I wonder if it just looks like that in the photo, or if it's been worn that much?
