Default Found a spot

Beach hunting has been more misses than hits lately. But found a nice stretch of beach that had plentiful targets, about 50 yards and then silence on both ends. But those 50 yards were non stop digging and the sea gave up it's old treasures. One of my best ring days at 12. 2 junk, 3 stainless steel (one has little diamonds), 4 silver rings (1 silver chain and cross), and 2 14k Goldies.

One of the silver rings is an old "feather style" with turquoise, that looks really cool. The ring with more grey on it I believe is pewter.

That's a great day! Even that junker with the diamonds is nice. That'll easily sell. Funny how you can sometimes find those little areas that are outliers.

Nice location.

Beaches can be like that, if you find a spot that produces, pound it like crazy and there are likely more finds waiting for you.

Way to go! Hopefully a lot more action is in the works!

In the battle of Thermopylae the Persian Armies demanded that the Greeks surrender their weapons. King Leonidas responded saying "Molon Labe." Translation "Come and get it".

Always good to go off the beaten path, even on large beaches.
I found a stretch on a well pounded beach where I found dozens of silver coins, all within easy reach. Was at the far end of a large beach, barely anyone goes back there now and other detectors must have figured no traffic, no drops ,, But apparently back in the day, there was traffic and lots of it.
