Item Found: Beach

Location: Northeast

Metal Detector Used: Spectra Series (800-0329-HP)


July 1st, 2014

I hit the beach for low tide which was around 10pm . This beach is old and all the top sand is still gone because of super storm sandy . I have found old coins there and that is what I went back to find . I dug a lot of pull tabs and one wheat cent . Then I got that tone that is just above overload tone , but not yet quite the tone you get from nickels or pull tabs . Something went off in my head that this sounds like gold . I scooped it up and dumped it to the side . Like I said no sand here just rocks . When I looked down I seen the edge of the ring sticking out of the pile . I picked it up and was vary happy , it made my night . It was a woman's 14k band . No other markings in side so I don't think I will be able to find the owner . I now need to say , thanks to White's and all the people who work there that make this hobby fun !
