Default Equinox 600: First rings.

Carrying on from my last post on finding the microscope on a very low tide (England) these are the rest of the finds from that day. The silver toe ring was found on another beach.

Left and middle rings are silver and right one is platinum.

All the rings were found on program Beach 1 with no other changes other than searching in 'All Metal'.

The platinum ring came up on the TID on solid 12 at around 4 inches.

This is only my 6th time out with the Equinox.

Thanks for looking...........Doug.







Hallmarks, never seen them this small before.

No gold? I think your nox is defective.
You should send that nox to me and I will "tune it" for you.

Thank you.

They are the new English 1 coins, top right is 1 Euro coin.

Although we are in the European Union we still retained our coinage and did not move over to the Euro.
