    Nicely done! I wish I had more time for detecting this summer. It pains me to see my excal sitting idle waiting ...it seems to be begging me for some attention!

    [QUOTE=Southern_Digger;2894319]Absolutely Outstanding.... Congratulations.

    BTW Here's a riddle

    What do you call a person that wears a piece of jewelry as that to a beach and loses it?

    So how long it was there days weeks years? I made an effort and searched Lost and
    Found ads. I checked with the head life guard (without tipping my hat) for any lost valuables,
    only rings and smaller stuff have been reported this season.

    100 Grams of White Gold and Diamonds 3.53 onces!
    14k 26in White Gold Chain (67.7g)
    18k White Gold Pendant (32.3g) 5 1/2 tcw of Diamonds
    MSRP $16000.00
    An Online Jeweler Has the chain at 3100 and the pendant at 5200
    Here's how it unfolded.
    I retrieved a phone message about some beach cuts forming late Wednesday night. The earliest I could get
    out was 7pm Thursday for a low at 942pm. What I found was a 3 1/2 foot cut. My plan was to slowly
    hunting towards the more populated beach.Well my plan went out to lunch when another hunter entered in behind me.
    We knew each other and our intentions.But I just could not pass up targets. So I stuck to my plan and I waved him on
    through, and he just took off! He had a good hour plus hunting the targeted area before I even got within a 1/2 mile
    of him. He had been scooting (running) up and down the beach and I was hunting my
    ever so slow pace. Up and back from what was now a 5ft cut. This cut must have happened
    very quickly as it was voided of trampling feet! By this time I had about 40 coins.
    My fellow hunter was now knee deep in the water (God bless him). Where did he think all that sand went?
    We passed several times. I had finally figured out the line
    of targets was 12 ft from the cut. I shorten my grid. He move further south to another beach.
    It was shortly after that I got one of those burps (Excalibur) There were signs of shells and
    pebbles from his recent recovery,and foot prints. It had sounded like a bottle top but trash wasn't being found!
    I was not sure where it came from. (And neither did the Excal) I stopped and searched with
    no responce. I ran the scoop over the coil to regain the tone.But then there was no mistaken that low tone.
    I rescanned the target several times, each pass sounded even better.
    I made sure of a good PP and my first scoop produce a good 10 inches of solid packed sand and nothing else.
    My second one as I was pulling the T-Rex scoop out I saw something get pulled out of the scoop.
    In what was a split second I thought that was odd,who did that and I think that was the target.
    Followed by its a chain still in the sand. I reached in the now deep hole and held
    the cross and 6 inches of chain and tugged a bit but it tugged back.
    I started to dig with my hand and the chain was 20 inches straight down.
    It took a few hand fulls and the chain slid out. My first thoughts were wow this is heavy but silver or
    SS and not to get my hopes up.I tried to look for marks but the sea mist had my glasses fogged.
    I placed it in my neck pouch and continued hunting. Ya right, back out it came for another look!
    This proved silly. The other hunter came back by and stopped to say the other beach had no cut and
    was surpriced to the lack of targets with the cut he was heading back. (total coins for me 113)
    I hunted 3 more hours. In the car there was just no way my glasses were going to cooperate.
    I dove down the road holding and looking at each traffic light. I finally noticed three safety locks and
    just knew then they don't do this to SS or silver. Funny thing was I weight it first when
    I got home,then looked for any marks. The chain was clearly marked 14k and I did an acid test on both.
    It wasn't till I looked up the pieces online did I realized that the cross only came in 18k so a new acid test
    confirmed this.
