Default Gold Number 4 FTY

We got a little rain today, but after it stopped, I took a drive to a park about 15 miles away. Since it is Saturday, and it is a normally very busy park, I decided to try a football practice field that isn't being used due to the virus. I have never found much clad there, so I put the NOX in Field 1 and made the decision to dig everything. Near a walking trail next to the field, I was lucky enough to get over my 4th gold of the year (and 2nd since August 20th). It rang up 14/15, and was only about 3" deep. The markings on the inside of the ring are "LDI 14k 30". Not sure what the 30 means, but was very happy to see the 14k!!! I wish I would have taken a picture of all the trash I dug, it was impressive, but worth it. Thanks for looking, and happy hunting!

Thanks! I thought this one was going to be junk as well until I got home and was able to see the stamp on the inside.

I bet they were. I did look at the Lost and Found, but there was nothing about the ring. Thanks!
