Default Old Sterling and Older Gold

A little late on the post, but this was from Sunday's hunt. It has been a while, but we finally had some good swells this weekend....7-8 footers in some areas. When I got to the beach, the swells did their job this time and produced a nice area of 2-3 foot cuts.

Family obligations only allowed me to get out for about 4 hours....but that time was well spent. A nice assortment of clad (minus the Felix's), an old 14k band that is dated inside 4-25-60, a .925 earring and a cool 1975 sterling class ring. I did a little buff job on the class ring....turned out pretty nice.

The class ring has the initials on the inside, so I will make an attempt to get this one back to its original owner.

Good Luck....Be Safe....Jeff.

I can't remember the last time I found gold and silver by sitting on the couch watching TV !!!!

Awesome rings Jeff- congrats mi amigo! Sure wish we had more days like this weekend's. Now that the beaches have been cut perhaps next week's smaller swells will be enough to uncover what we didn't get to.
