Default Sterling Yard Permission.

Obtained a permission this afternoon. The homeowner told me that she couldn't imagine me finding anything, but I was welcome it give it a shot. Her yard was tore up for new sprinklers and was full of clad. When she saw me picking up so many signals, she suddenly became interested. I found a nice sterling ring that I gave to her and an old sterling bracelet charm. Some sort of drum. It was a fun afternoon. I was hoping for some silver coins, but skunked this time. Thanks for looking.

Thanks. It was a 30s-50s neighborhood. I didn't ask specifically about the age of the house. Definitely old enough that I expected to find some silver coins.

Nice hunt SW. The ring is very nice. Cool little drum and marbles. I love finding marbles all though I don't find many, maybe 4 so far this year. Good luck, Mark

Very Nice sterling ! I found the exact same drum a few years back... Super nice to give back to the owner. It always is a nice gesture.
