Rubies, Emeralds and Diamonds :) Pics are fixed
« on: July 09, 2007, 09:10:53 AM »
Got stuck at work for the last 4 days, back in tonight so I decided to head out for a few hours this morning :)
Andy arrived at my home around 5:45 loaded up my car and off we went. We decided to go back to the waterfront park where the festival was a couple weeks ago.

We both still found money just sitting on the ground under the grass :) Not a lot, but enough to keep us going :)

Man; was it hot today, even early this morning you could feel the humidity!
By 10am we were dragging our butts :)

Andy found a large silver ring and a nice chain with a silver thingy on it and lots of clad. I got very lucky and found this within 30 minutes of hunting :)

It's pretty big and heavy :)
I didn't have time to stop by my jeweller this morning, but I will later on this week.
Here's the rest of the loot :)

Had one of the original Whites detectors. Never could get it to discriminate write. But use to like using it to find the out lines of old houses that had either rotted or burned away any sign of it on the surface. If you find a nails, hinges or window latch. Draw lines out from there to other finds. Even rust can help draw out the lines of the ones standing building.
I knew some one that said he had found a out house hole, that had 120 Opium bottles in it. Buy finding the rust of the nails and one hinge.
Do anything, and there is always some one to one trying to one up you at it. Whether it was bull or not, did not matter.
As it was a good story he told that sounded totally possible. As I have dun the same thing. even if the only thing I got was some rusted square nails. 
Only thing I found using it, that had some value. Was a silver dollar.  That it did not even hit on. I saw it with my eyes first.
Chuck.

So did you ever take that fancy ring in for an appraisal?

How did it turn out?
