Default Didn’t Get Faked Today! 18K Signet Ring

Went a bit more north this morning for another pre-sunrise hunt to a beach I hadn’t hit in a while. After reaching the northern luxury area that I wanted to reach and not scoring I headed back. I had another hour to go in my 4 hour hunts and went a bit south from where I started. That’s when I got a “21” on Noxy and was expecting to get a nice shiny penny when the heavy tungsten carbide showed up. I did notice that conditions were a bit better there. At about the 3:30 mark I get an “11” and get a ring PT. A few minutes later the next target was also an “11” and I was expecting another PT but when I look in the scoop I see . There was no doubt with this one! I finished my hunt at about 4 hours and head home. I check out the ring at home and see a mark on the inside a “1” and a smaller “0”. It looked too buttery to be 10K and the acid test confirmed it – passing 18K nicely. So the smaller “0” was the upper part of an 8 that either wore away or was never marked completely. At 4.4 grams, I was also off on my guess of it being between 2-3 grams. I have been pretty good with that but this child’s signet ring is very top heavy throwing me off. Not a bad find for a child's ring.

Well thank you very much for finding my ring. I was in Miami last week, and lost that there. I'll even properly ID it for you, as proof : It is monogrammed "TB" ok ? Kindly mail that back to me. Thankyou.

Tom, I thought you had a hyphenated "B-S" last name?

No, not this time. But at least 3 of these 4 are in good shape. I put out a box with lots of sunglasses last year at my school with a "Free Take One" sign and they flew! I'm getting to the point of having a decent amount again so I'll probably do the same this year. I think this year's sign will say "Free Sunglasses Provided by Your Friendly Neighborhood Pirate".

Wait... TB? That must be Tom Brady’s signet ring. He really doesn’t NEED another ring, what with all them super-honkers he’s earned!

That's a sweet summer save there! 18k is always a rarity in these times.

LOL..Nice ring and I don't feel at all sorry for the little kid that lost it...or the parents that bought it for the child. I guess I'm becoming a cold hearted pirate finally. The only thing I'll return is dog tags to family members if they want them...Here is a list if you want to start working on it...or not thanks for sharing!
