Thanks, I love how lite the DEUS is, makes swinging for hours on end much more comfortable. It is a very capable machine. I've just started reading Andy Sabisch's book, it seems very informative. Hopefully it gives me some insight and helps me improve my quality of finds. I think I may have been using his coin program when I found this ring. Thanks again and good luck with your DEUS!! HH.

Thanks relicmeister! I appreciate it. HH
Very nice ring! As soon as I can afford a Deus, I'll buy one. Not sure if they have upgraded it but from all I see and read, it's a deep seaking and accurate detector!

Thanks for the comment, yes from the short time I've used it, its proving to be an awesome machine. Its a little pricey, but luckily Richard, at Backwoods detectors accepts layaway. Thats how I was able to purchase my last three detectors.

thanks again.

I got a new XP Deus last week that I purchased from Richard at Backwoods Detectors. I took it to a local park for the first hunt with it on Friday April the 9th. I was digging everything as I usually do with a new machine, then about 20 mins in I got an 83 signal. I almost passed it up as I saw this was in the zinc penny range but luckily I decided to dig it. About 6-7 inches down i found this awesome White and Yellow gold 14K men's band in the the hole. Boy am I glad I decided to dig it!! I had my grandson with me and he was excited to see this nice gold ring come out of the ground.
So much fun finding treasure. Happy Hunting!!! View attachment 14676 View attachment 14677 View attachment 14678
UPDATE: Ring restored at local Jeweler.

I decided to take my newly found gold ring into a local Jeweler to have it professionally polished. I've had it done before on other items of jewelry with satisfactory results. The Jeweler suggested I have it restored, he explained that he could repair the scratches, dings and dents on the ring, recut the lines on the center band, and and apply a fresh coat of Rhodium.

He told me he there were three choices, I could have it polished, Polished with a coat Rhodium or completely restored as mentioned above I decided to have it restored. Here are the results. Before and after shots.



Thanks!!
