Default Another Cut Gives it Up - Gold & Silver

Stepped into a small area that was another cut with few targets in it. BUT I worked it hard with the 8" coil on the excal for several hours. Went after anything worth a blip in the audio, flipping between remote PP and discriminate and going for those deepest of tones. As a result, out came an odd bent up religious pendant, old junk earring or pin, 5 Wheats, a Buffalo nickel, a '64 Washington and a nice old 14K signet ring. Yes! I'll take it.

That is a beautiful gold ring! The band is thin, so I would think it could have been easily passed on, if you didn't "have your ears on". Nice work!
