Default Pre-beginnerís luck - my best find came before my first detector!

Eyeball find at the end of a gravel driveway of a long-abandoned house. Lots of little dings and road rash, makes me wonder how long it was out there. No idea if the stone is real, but 12g of 14k is plenty respectable on its own!
