Default Two locations, Two Sterlings

First location of the day was sports field have not been to in a very long time. For the day, I find about 80% of my finds there and the one crushed sterling ring. This ring is positioned 2nd or to right side in the photos.

While at the field, I noticed some contractors on the next property over doing extensive renovation work to a small 1950's bungalow style house. After some small shop talk with the them, they gave me permission to hunt the property as the property will be sold/flipped again. About 20% of my finds were recovered there and another sterling ring for the day. The ring looks to have been cut and resized and as to possibly being an older style wedding ring.

The jewelry that I have been finding as of lately, are definitely in the deeper range.

Overall, I'll gladly take in some silver rings as I'm kind of forgetting what a silver coin looks like anymore! Thanks for stopping by!

Nice, congrats! I think you may be able to straighten the one ring out.

Thanks Mark! Finding those sterlings are a real treat for me. Especially, since I'm not finding any silver coins no matter how hard to try. I was thrilled about the permission too. No matter what gets found, I enjoy and appreciate it all. Best to you on finding that next silver!

Thanks GroundSweeper! Yes, they do seem to have some age to them. But both will be going into my silver scrap pile.

Thanks metaladdict! You are so right about that! Even those bent up rings made my pouch smile on the way home.

Thanks Soil Surgeon! I thought about straightening it, and if it break I got nothing to lose. Overall, it is pretty beat up. But if anything, it will look good in my silver scrap pile. One thing about silver, it is all good.
