    Was in a quandary this morning: clean that bathroom floor or head to the beach?

    Quandary was solved in a couple of seconds....there's no gold to be found on the bathroom floor


    Another beautiful sunny day...why spend it on my hands and knees cleaning that old tile floor... got to the beach at noon and hunted for 3 hrs.

    As I was walking along the dune line in the dry sand with the GT in hand, and taking in the serene view of the ocean, I heard that unmistakable low solid tone, and looked down at the sand to see a gold ring laying right on top of the sand! ...Didn't even have to work for that one.


    Fully aware that had the GT taken another route ...like a couple of inches to the left or right , and me gazing out at the ocean, I definitely would have missed the ring Careless detecting...won't happen again.

    Ring has no stamping inside the band...but tested 12 K with gold test kit.

    The key: TECO stands for Timber Engineering Company. Established in 1933, TECO was bought out in 1988. The company did testing on timber for various uses.

    Started cleaning the rusty -looking ? tag / ? medallion..was surprised to see a hole at the top of it.

    Here's a couple of pics.

    thanks for looking...now if you 'll excuse me...I have a bathroom floor to wash

    Nice find! WTG I agree, MDing is way more fun than cleaning. I always say, "A bad day of MDing is always better than a good day of cleaning toilets."

    Congrats on the hunt instead of the chores. Glad your using a GT as it won't miss anything if you get the coil near it. I use a leaf blower for dusting.

    Re: Was in a quandary this morning: clean that bathroom floor or head to the beach?

    Nice eyeball find. That happened to me with a gold chain. I saw about two inches of chain sticking out of the sand ,I ran the detector over it and it would not even pick it up. That was the only gold I found that day and was happy to have it.
    Awesome ring by the way. Congrats.

    well there might be gold on the bathroom floor * in liquid form --yeh the worst day of metal detecting at the beach beats-- the best cleaning up a bathroom floor day , everytime.

    ps 12 K is a standard of 50% pure gold -- common in older victorian era times * late 1800's early 1900 era --most modern stuff is either 10 K , 14 K or 18 K
