Sterling ring and my first walking liberty half
Well, I found my first and only mercury dime in a lake, and now my first and only walking liberty half came out of a lake also, 1942! This is a very unique spot where you can't hardly utilize a scoop, it's much faster to use a vibra-probe and feel with your fingers for the target.
The oldest of the six wheat pennies tonight was 1940, nickel was 1949. Got a 1920 wheatie on the last trip here.
The silver ring is marked "sterling", so I reckon it's an oldie too, the third one marked sterling from this spot now. The pendant has gotta be an oldie too, can't imagine it being modern.
Only hunted for about an hour, gonna hit it again in the a.m. unless it storms. Just before getting outa the water, one of the drunk girls that was closeby in the water said her gold ring just flew off in the water, 14k white gold with a couple tiny diamonds. Looked briefly for it, with no luck, I told them I'd be back in the morning to look for it.

All right, I'll chime in.
That is one EXCELLENT hour spent in the water! I'd be damned near camping on that location and working it hard.
Hope you get at least two gold in the AM...HH

Whoever sent the pm, I think I oops erased it. The ring weighs just over half ounce.

Nice finds. That walking liberty looks like it was just dropped.
