Default Went back to the virgin lake.

Best of it was an old gold class ring circa 30s or 40s. Silver pendant on a chain. Silver ring and 64 Rosie. 13 wheats and some junk jewelry.

Love old rings. Looks like you are cleaning the trash and having fun, which is all that counts. I bet you will have more luck after a lot more trash is cleared out.

Congrats on the gold and silver finds and all the other keepers.

What Karat gold is the chain? With the corrosion of the silver pendant, I'm thinking you've got at least 10K there...

Looks like a great date with the virgin lake. Now all that can be said is nice finds and get a room.

Yep. Brass. We are not that lucky to find many gold chains in the lakes around here. I stumble upon them because I see them most the time.
