    Lots of Gold After The Erosion

    Crazy erosion at "Erosion Beach" made for some fantastic hunting. I've gotten Silver just about every trip out not to mention handfuls of wheat cents. On the better days I got four to six Silver dimes.

    Monday and Tuesday last week detecting went up a couple notches. First day I got a quinceanera ring which is unmarked but definitely Gold at 7.5 grams. Then Tuesday got a fatty wedding band at 14K and 8.1 grams.

    Monday of this week I pulled out a 1962 Franklin half. This is my 2nd Franklin and from this beach and also my 5th Silver half (all from this beach).

    Yesterday, Wednesday was really a fun day. First ring is a Buddhist themed. It came out just like it looks with no corrosion and I wanted it to be gold.but it's probably brass. A little while later I did get my gold! A nice wedding band at 14K and 5.25 grams. Just before leaving I got the small Silver ring with 2 out of the three red stones intact. I also got a small Silver religious medallion which I'll post along with the Silver.

    These were found with the PI in wet sand.

    Hey SnT ... when you get down here give me a call and we can hook up for a couple of hunts. Erosion Beach should be pretty terrific this winter.

    Good finds Joe.
    The title "erosion beach" has such a nice
    "ring" to it.
    Strike while the metal is hot.

    Would that first ring be of Mexican heritage ? 15 anos is 15 years which is the year that they celebrate their quinceanara or 15th birthday. Just a thought, I see a lot of those celebrations down here in Texas. Thanks, beautiful finds. Jim

    You got it, Jim. In the past I've also found a portion of a quinceanara bracelet for a girl.
