A Little Silver & a Little Gold...

Howdy--

I haven't been out detecting for over a week - that's TERRIBLE! My sweet wife went to Louisiana to visit her brother and do some fishing out in the Gulf so I stayed close to home to take care of business and the dogs. She had a great visit and caught a lot of fish and now she is home again and I am free to detect! Yesterday I went back to those abandoned homes that I have been hunting. I had been accepting VDI's from +16 to +24 and +48 to +93. Yesterday I decided to open it up and accept +9 to +93. I sure did dig a lot of Memorials 56 in total. I also dug $1.65 in clad, 4 wheat cents ( the oldest a 1936), a silver Jefferson and a 1.7 gram 14K gold ring. I'm glad that I opened up the discrimination - the ring VDI'd at 12-13. I still have the back yards to hunt. I'll just cross my fingers that the back yards are as productive as the front yards have been. Best of luck and ...

Happy Hunting!

At least you didn't have to go out and buy her a new gold ring..You got the thrill of the find and the smile from your wife. Talk about batting a 1,000. Congrats

Thanks Jimmy. Yes sir - it was one of my better days detecting! The smile on her face was priceless. She shows everybody the ring and says: "Look at what the Old Man dug up - it sure beats all of the "dirty stuff" that he brings home!" I get a laugh at that! Best of luck and...
