Wink Ostby & Barton Signet Ring!

Got out this weekend with Craig.....we knew the sand got moved around, So yesterday I saw a nice a hard pack spot 'blacksand' and started Gridding it very slow with my DP HH PI....got some clads that been there a few years and then I got a nice sweet sound that we all like to hear.....two scoops later, A 10k signet ring very old too...Craig and I think is about 100 yrs. old! The inside marking has O 10K B......Craig sent me the link on it, It's a pretty cool read...check it out! Ten minutes later, Got a silver wedding band that been there a few yrs. Today We went back and I found a cookie coin Merc no date on it junks and clads. Funny, Craig call me over to help him dig one of is hole 'bad Wrist' and we pulled out over $2.00........"in that one hole"! No gold for Craigy boy, But all and all we had a great time!

Awesome signature ring Joe! Thats one of the exciting things about sand fishing. You never know what your gonna find each hunt. Really old gold rings (or shall I say Estate jewelry) are one of my favorites. Congrats on the nice finds.
