Default First time out this year! 19k signet!

Got out for the first time since December, new coil in the mail so I was itching to try it out. Targets were few and far between, what was there was all light stuff. Zincolns, aluminum bits. Bottom of the slope out comes this bad boy. With 8 teenagers standing in a circle around me. Also scored an ate-up class ring and a junk earring. HH.

Looks like the ring owner lost it the day you found it That other ring doesn't look like gold to me.. might have been plated but I have never seen a gold ring eaten up like that.. could be silver as well... good job.

That other ring is definitely junk. SS over brass I suppose. The signet is marked 825. Shiny and smooth!

Portuguese gold is quality stuff. ... Most of the gold that's sold in Europe is 18 karat, which means it's 75% gold and 25% other metals. Portuguese gold, on the other hand, is 19.2 karat, or 80% gold.

SCORE!!! Great start to your season, and with the new coil...which, it seems, more than paid for itself on day one!
Spectacular ring!
