Default Treasure island!

All of the beaches are shut down here in the Panhandle of Florida, so I decided to take the yak out and hit some of the man made islands that were created by dredging the sound out in the 1920's. I live on the water and see these islands every day, never tried detecting them before. After a 5 min kayak paddle and firing the NOX up, I got a solid 24 in beach 2 mode, was sure it was a dime, dug it anyway and pulled this pretty 925 out! Not sure what the makers mark is, looks like a hooked A, the stone looks nice too! Can't wait to clean it up. Hope everyone else is able to find some socially isolated spots and get to swinging!

HH

Thanks Steve! I agree, it's only accessible via boat.

We were suppose to be down in FL on vacation right now diving for MEG teeth... but of course everything went on shutdown mode. Nice find and good thinking with the yak to get you out and about. I knew that COVID couldn't swim! HAHA!

Beautiful ring, I really enjoy polishing silver rings myself. I use Hagerty Silversmiths' polish and a soft cloth.

Thanks Jim! I will try a cloth to get the larger parts.

Nice going on the silver and thinking out of the box with the kayak. I thought about that too a few days ago but haven't done it yet. Let's see...
