    Keepers From The Beach

    Last few hunts during the low tide cycle, exact same stretch of beach. I hunted three areas, all parallel to the waterline and for a distance of about one mile.
    A) in the water zigzagging from waist deep to chest deep.
    B) The berm line right in the breakers.
    C) The beach side berm of the washes and low spots that make up the belly of the beach.

    Only the bracelet came from the water and it was right on top. The heavy silver earring and nice looking junk ring with the fooler stone came from the berm in the breakers. Everything else came from the traffic side berms and low spots that make up the belly area of the beach. Both mens gold rings (one white, the other yellow with diamond chips) were found right in the steeper berms of the shallow washes in the belly of the beach, one was just above the berm and the other was just bellow. Also found the usual collection of pulltabs, coins, sunglasses, etc., "But not the first fishing sinker!" Clearly there's just too much sand buildup beyond the belly of the beach right now. I was using the CZ-21 with 10.5 coil, disc 1, sens between 5 1/2 to 7 (whatever I could get away with at the time.)

    PS: Didn't clean any of this. All of this stuff was fairly recent drops and only 3 or 4 inches deep.

    That's a nice little collection of jewelry you have acquired! I just recently found my first 10k mens and 14k womens rings. As a guy that seems to find a fair number of rings, what kind of prices do you get for a ring?

    Cool

    Talon, most save their rings till they have a few and then send them off to ARA Refineries where we get 98% of the spot price. Rings are alloyed with various metals and this changes the percent of gold as to 10 kt. is like 42% gold. As for part of a summer. Name:  173.jpg

    Talon get yourself a good scale and diamond tester..... $30 for both. Then try this site.... Scrap Gold Weight Conversion and Melt Value Calculator it should help you convert about any precious metal.

    That CZ was a smoking...... How much gold ya got there?

    This was over a few days of slow hunting, Thurs, Fri, & Sat, not the same day. About 16 grams of 14k combined, but those are the first gold rings I've found in quite a while, (Both on Sat). Lately, I've been trying to hunt at the height of the beach activity on account of all the soft sand buildup and competition. Seems if I wait to hunt the empty beach that's exactly what I get, "empty".

    PS: Dew I just weighed them and it came out to only 12.5 grams. My bad! I guessed the gold ring to be heavier then what it was, pretty hollow around the settings.

    Yes, but I'm not showing all the junk I dug, quite a collection of pulltabs, corroded pennies, bottle caps, pieces of aluminum, etc. Personally, I think there should be a rule that states that after 20 pull tabs you automatically earn a gold ring.

    Good looking haul there and thanks for all the info on gold pricing, good to know.
    Flip-flops are fine, but barefoot is best!

    There should also be a law against using bobby pins at the beach. Those little antenae set off my PI dual down at 18 inches.
