Hello folks and thanks for looking! I will be adding to this thread as I go so you can see the fabulous luck I will be having digging up the lost and left behind. ~
I started out with a Bounty Hunter Gold Digger my wife unit got me for Christmas 2011 and got an incredibly rare warmup in January that allowed me to get out for 5 days and test this hobby out.
I'm hooked and will be upgrading to a better unit before spring. Here are my finds from the few days I got to go out, I hit clad coins right away and on the third day I nailed these 2 silver rings and the gold plated diamond pendant.
I about shat myself when I wiped the dirt off the pendant and saw gold and diamonds! When It didn't clean up later it was obvious it is plated.
More than the little bits of precious metal, what it showed me is I am doing it right and thats a wonderful feeling! .
I keep the odd finds and throw the rest away, like some kid is missing a home made pot pipe, a dollar store ring and some wierd cross?
That is also a very hot rock, it still went off even with iron descrimination all the way up. .
The small pile of clad had a white vinegar bath to clean it up and is ready for penny dishes and regular circulation. Nothing old in the coin department yet.
All the best to you fine folks and stay tuned for springtime finds! . Irons
