Default So much silver I got cursed at

Some early morning hunts turned up a few treasures, nothing too exciting. But I got cursed at. Not by a beach goer, but the ring got me. Thought it was headed for the melt pile. Looked up "chrome hearts" and "f&$@ you" ring found out this is not a cheap ring. Weird. Not sure why anyone would wear that.

Also picked up some other 925 and one tiny 14k. Brass ring had me going for a minute. Happy 4th of JulyName:  PXL_20220628_110157578.jpg

Haha, pretty good post. Good to see the CA action. And I like the money-shot pose on the scale.

Way to go! The ring wearer probably hit themselves with a hammer a lot? Always fun pulling gold and silver chains out of the pile to see how long they are. One of the 24k ones i found was 24" long when it stopped. Can't explain the feeling when you are glad it wasn't a bracelet

Hah! I like that. Was detecting up in Missoula and found one of those large aluminum tokens with the Star in the center, usually with writing around the edge, sometimes with names or a business. This one said "$@&% you Joe!" I was a bit shocked. Someone sure was upset with Joe!

I saw a shirtless guy in a parking lot a week ago with uncensored "F### You" tattooed large across his chest. Maybe it was his.

ring on ?

Yea, it doesn't deserve to be circulated. It will be melted.

You speak truth. See a glimmer in the sand and not know the beginning or end.... Always a fun surprise.

Makes you wonder who would put the time into making something like that.... Lots of hatred or a tasteless joke.

Lol. Maybe

There's nothing like having a bad day and seeing a ring that says FU on the finger. Truly inspiring (sarcasm). Maybe it was a single person with a bad breakup
