Sterling USN Ring...

Howdy--

My buddy shaffer44 and I were trying to find a lot to detect yesterday and I drove in the area of my Meals-On Wheels route. Shaffer44 also delivers meals on this route on alternate days. This route is in a very old part of town. We passed by one of the meals recipients and I noticed that she was outside. I said: There is Mrs. H, let's stop and say hi." We visited for a while and then she invited us to detect her yard and to keep whatever we find. I knew that this site had potential because I had hunted it about 15 years ago. Fifteen years ago the entire block was vacant and had several foundations that I had hunted and found Barber and Mercury dimes and plenty of wheat cents and other goodies.

I was using the 9" White's Spider coil on my V3i and decided to swing the coil between the curb and the row of cactus that Mrs. H had planted. I dug some scrap copper, a 1955-D wheat cent and then I got a solid 89-91 vdi reading that pinpointed green at 4". It pinpointed small and my hopes were a silver half. I was not at all disappointed to see this U.S.N. 12.1 gram Sterling Silver ring. I volunteer for Hospice and one of the patients that I visit was an officer on an Ocean Going Tug during WW2 in the Pacific. I believe that this ring will have a new home.

Sorry about the quality of the scan. The ring does not sit well on my scanning bed. Best of luck and...

Happy Hunting!

We are just going to have to get a better picture for you of that ring, it is a hunk.
