Default My Excal is fine and birthday gold for me:)

Instead of leaving yesterday to get my Excal looked at after making a strange noise down south, I left 2 days ago. This because I could see a few days ago that seas were going to get rough so I could get some detecting in as well. My Excal seems to have no problem at all and I'm happy about that. I am also happy that I found a bit of gold for my birthday too I worked hard for it but in the end it was a win win situation Thanks for looking and HH everyone.

Congrats on the birthday gold. I will never get that around here since mine is in February!

So the one next to it isn't white gold?

Thanks Scuba! February?! The ring next to it is not marked but it does have the weight to for gold. I am not convinced though.

The Excal is working well I see....That's a good B-day present in itself, along with the gold. Congrats and many more of both
That gold ring is unique, WTG! I like it!
