    1950 / 10K class ring under the rocks today.

    Hi,

    Rain finally stopped, and although it was foggy for a while out there it was fun to be out diggin' again.

    Found a few clads before I heard that nice low tone and scooped out a 62 yrs. old class ring from under those rocks.

    Those old class rings were made in such a nice style...I 'd say "classy".

    Here's some pics of the 2 1/2 hr. hunt as I chased the tide out.

    thanks for looking at my post and pics

    Lorraine

    Really nice find!

    You did a great job cleaning it too. Electrolysis?

    I had a freckled 14k ring that was a similar age. I used hydrochloric acid (swimming pool)[super dangerous - need to be very careful] for about 5 seconds and then a mild baking soda polish.

    thanks, Dr. Joe,

    Yes, I did a bit of electrolysis on this ring, about 10 minutes...it had that green accumulation in some spots; then I rinsed it and gently rubbed it with baking soda.

    I could've done a better job...there is still some "green" visible , but I'll leave it as is.

    thanks,

    I used electrolysis followed by gentle rubbing with baking soda and finally a shine with jeweler's rouge ( black crayon)

    It's still not as clean as I would like it to be, but I haven't got any more time to spend cleaning it.

    Lorraine: I think I love your beaches as much as I love your finds. Ever find old copper or bronze boat nails, rivets or fittings? I can just smell the sand and hear the slosh of the tidal wavelets. It's no fun living inland from the coast. That truly is a wonderful ring. The design almost has an art deco feel to it.

    thanks, billinoregon,

    Yes, I find those old rivets, and all kinds of fittings...some heavy , some lighter.Sorry, I don't know very much about the various metals, but it's all there ...too much of it in those "muddy flats."
