Default Gold, silvers and a .925

Today, I hunted a school's general purpose sports field. I have been to this location many times. It's like my go to place when I just want to just take it easy.

I was focusing on mid tones today. I probably found enough metal pencil eraser heads to start a pencil recycling company.

The day started off finding the two silver dimes a merc. and a Rosie in the same hole that were masked by a corroded cent and a nickel.

By mid day, I found a small .925 earring.

Later in the day is when I found a 10K gold ring that rang up a solid 13. It was about 6-7" in the ground. From finding all those nickels today, it was a nice reward to finally find a goldie mixed in with them!

My silver total FTY is now at 37. It is amazing how some days it all comes together. Thanks for checking out my latest thread!

Thanks Steve! Some how the ground conditions were just right for those mid tones. I was nicely surprised when I found that ring.

Thanks Mark! When I least expected it, that's when those better finds are recovered. Yep, you are right about those eraser bands. And those beaver tails seem to always get me too. But most times I have to dig them just to be sure and this time it paid off. I have to say, I was real lucky finding those two dimes that were nicely masked.

Thanks NCtoad! Gold has been lean with me this year. It was nice to finally find another piece before the year-end. If anything, I can always go back and dig some more clad...lol.

Thanks diggin4clad! I am glad I was able to switch things up a bit from the usual clad finds.

Thanks GroundSweeper! Incidentally, if you look closely the back side of the ring guard it is cracked/broken and it still rang up as a 13. Once in a great moon I get lucky and find some of the real good metals.

Thanks zeemang! You are absolutely correct. I was kind of forcing myself to digging more of those trash kind of signals. I was just lucky to putting the coil in the right spot that time.

Thanks TommyJay! The gold ring looks older since it has script type initials engraved into it and a bit deep in the ground too. And as we all know, the good stuff is many times mixed in with the pesty junk.
