Happy spring

Greetings ya'all. I'm in the Boston area. The spring thaw just came in yesterday. (March came in like a lion this year). So I am pretty psyched. There is still plenty of snow around, but most of the snow should be gone later this week.
I'm looking forward to going to Hampton Beach with my Equinox 800. Happy detecting to you all. :beers:

Spring has definitely sprung here in good old WV, the snow is all gone, the ground has thawed, put a brand new set of batteries in my old F5, set my clock ahead for day light savings time plus we've got a pretty good spot planned to hunt that has produced some silver.

Yeah, the weather should be pretty nice in WV. Maybe kinda muddy... Best wishes to you all. Have fun!

Looking at the weather forecast it appears that mother nature might just have one more slap for you. She slapped us down this way with temps just above freezing.

Nice finds. That twisted wire ring could be silver. I found one just like that on the beach last year and though it has no markings, the detectors identify it in the silver range. I've seen some online jewelry makers that have rings just like that in silver, gold and platinum.



Active detectors and accessories: Fisher F19 LTD on Mars universal shaft, F19 on original shaft, Nokta Fors CoRe, Whites MX7, Makro and Nokta pointers. Killer B's and Jolly Rogers headphones and assorted coils.
Previous detectors in order of acquisition: Bounty Hunter Discovery, Fisher F44, Fisher F5, Omega 8000 V6, Minelab X-Terra 705

Thanks I started two years ago and found my first $5.00 1911 half eagle in this park
And it keeps on giving and it was hunted to death in the 70’s and 80’s I never see anyone hunt it anymore except my friends and I
Here’s the eagle
Low and slow does it detecting and let the shovel discriminate!!

That's a beauty Mark! Just remarkable for a well hunted park all those years. Glad for you!
