Default My Best day ever!

I finally found a place I've dreamed about.
I have hit it 4 times now.
Day 1- couple hours detecting- found some normal clad 3-4 wheat pennies and a silver rosie
Day 2- found some normal clad- 2-3 hours- a couple of wheat pennies and another silver rosie
Day 3- 2-3 hours- my first buffalo nickel (woohoo!) and a silver Jefferson 1943P war nickel(first as well..wooohooo!)

Day 4- 3 hrs- ( and my absolute best day ever)

Barber quarter 1915 (first ever, wooohooo!!!, my second mercury dime in great condition, and wait for it.... my first gold ring and it was a monster. 14 K and weighing 10 grams wedding band)
Im so stoked right now! I always questioned what Im doing wrong when I look at pics on forum like this but finally have had a day of my own that I consider spectacular!

Thanks for looking.

Congratulations! Real nice spot you've found and seems like you are getting to know your detector.

When I was new to the hobby I was also disappointed when I compared my finds to what I see on the forums. I soon realized everyone has junk days too, they just don't post pictures of the 5lbs of junk it took for a couple coins. Ever since I realized that, I always post pics of my junk pile as a service to newbies.

Way to go and hope the good times continue.

Very nice! That's the way to knock off those firsts!

What kind of place is it? A park?
