Finds are from a small handful of hunts fairly close to home over the past couple weeks.
Finds were made at old city parks and schools.
The small personalized bracelet was a 12-24 ferrous/conductivity signal that I decided to chase because it had good depth and a solid sound.
I was thrilled when something good came of it.
The old toy ring read just like an Indian head penny @ 7-8 inches.
The one buffalo nickel appears to be 1926d which is a better year for value.

Silver Dimes are 1908d,1923,1957,1961,1963,1964

Here are a couple of additional pictures. I am unsure if the one piece is a large old pin or something different.
It had great depth next to a sidewalk and read similar to an old wheat penny.
The other pic is the buffalo nickel that appears to be 1926d.

Great hunting and awesome variety of goodies Dave. I love that Armstrong whistle ring. I bet the kid that lost that was devastated. I can just see the kid running round the neighborhood blowing on that ring. Very nice monogrammed silver piece that must have been an awesome sight after digging that 12-24. I see you found the twin to my Barber quarter I found last weekend. 1908-D. That old Deco pin or pendant is pretty intriguing too.

Thanks Greg,
yes, I wasn't sure exactly what the ring was until I researched it. I thought it was incomplete. I had found a similar one years ago that was more beat up.
That 12-24 tone was a good surprise.

The ring is over the top cool! I have to wonder, how many thousands of silvers have you pulled out of the ground? Congrats on another great outing!!!

Thanks Mike,
yes it is neat to find a cereal ring. I believe the kids had to send in a few proof of purchases + 10 cents for it.
Not sure how many silver I have pulled. I started detecting in 2003 with an old Garret and then an explorer XS. I remember it took me over a year to pull my first buffalo and I wanted one so bad :)
I pulled my first silver at Dad's farm (mercury dime). I didn't even know what it was at first but was hooked from then on. I learned a lot from trial and error.
