Default My First GOLD ring!!!

It was a good day. I found this gem about 4 inches down. It's my first gold ring. It came up under a solid 65 on my scale. Something told me that it was your typical zinc penny but boy was I wrong! It comes out at 14k. No inscription on the inside. About 5 months ago I found a plat band in the general area too! I also found a good looking silver ring too! Pretty heavy. After 3 hours of work, my total was $10.03! I would say it was a great day!

So something is strange here. Your signature says you have TWO gold rings. In fact you have had that 10K ring up for a long time. Now this is your first?

Anyway nice score.

What do you mean? 3 platinum, 1 gold, all look like new...

My guess is someone heisted a jewelry store and dumped the rings while running from the law...

There is a very spot that I go to visit every 4 months here in southern cal. It is not the beach for sure. I found 3 plats earlier in the year and now I have found a yellow 14k ring. Never found one of them before. All rings came from the same hillside. I found 14 dollars yesterday and 10 dollars today. I am the only one that detects there. Here is the pick of me finding my gold prize this morning!!

So you didn't respond to my question. How is it that this is your first gold ring when you have had a 10K gold ring in your signature for a very long time?

You must be finding a TON of quarters to have 3500 coins and 666.00 for the year. Your hunts are truely amazing.

Hi ScubaDetector, Actually it is my first yellow gold ring. I have a 10k white gold class ring that I found earlier in the year that I can not find the owner for it. I was hoping to find a yellow ring for the longest time and finally found one! I should had been more specific.
