Metal Detector Used: Specialty Detector (Surf P.I.)


March 2nd, 2014

On March 1, 2014 a badly needed rainstorm finally slammed into Southern California. The beaches were calling for 12-15 foot waves. I rode with some fellow treasurehunters to arrive at the beach about 3 hours before low tide. We jumped down about a 3 foot cut and started getting some coins right away. After about 15 minutes I got a nice thin 14k gold mens band, so I slowed down and started gridding this area a lot better. About 30 minutes later, I got a real good signal. I got the target in the scoop, shook out the sand and saw a big, heavy ring. I picked the ring out of the scoop and blew some sand off it. I saw the 14k stamped inside and 4 rows of round diamonds. It was a stunning ring. I showed the ring to my friends and their jaws dropped open. When I got home, I put the ring on the scale and it weighed in at 17.8 grams, my biggest gold ring in 8 years of detecting. The White's Surf PI PRO works great on SoCal beaches and it has paid for itself many times over. John
