Big Silver & Black Hills Gold Rings

floodplaindetector

Well-known member
All finds shown are from last 3 weekends of hunting on researched public sites in Eastern South Dakota.
As usual My Minelab eTrac was used to pull everything. I had some good luck in running into some gold and silver rings on a few recent outings.
Saturday was an 11 silver day (see picture of finds in my hand with the 1917 half dollar).
The men's black hills gold and silver ring is large and tightly fits my fat finger which would probably make it a size 11.
I believe the ornate women's leaf design black hills gold ring has some age to it as it was about 6 inches deep and found near 1929 and 1940 wheat pennies.
For those of you familiar with Minelab eTrac it was giving me 12-17 numbers which are similar to most silver war nickels.
I believe the shiny "R" good for 5 cents token is an older amusement token. On the reverse it displays "Awarded for Skill".
Another unique find was that "King MC" trumpet mouthpiece. From my research it is from 1952-1967. It was about 1/2 foot deep.

One find I just about threw away was the Old 1878 De Lavel Golden Anniversary cream separator emblem. It is pretty mangled up and I thought it was just the top of an oil can until
I saw the numbers "1878" and got enough to ID it. I included a couple pictures of what it would have looked like originally.
As always, thanks for looking!
Dave

Geez I find one good silver dime and a couple IH pennies and I go home, kick back and have another cup of coffee and feel all accomplished. Then I see this and deflate like a worn old tire…… lol

Just curious on your “public sites”, have you run into jurisdictional authorities who have denied you “digging” access or are you simply accessing and hoping for the best? Or do most allow but restrict plug depth etc etc. I’ve encountered both out my way so again just curious.

Some great finds Dave. Congrats on results from the hard work. Looks like you were on a silver dime roll - Thanks for the display, best of luck these next few weeks as Fall moves in on us.
