    After the Storm Beach Hunt

    About a five hour hunt yesterday (Thursday afternoon). Dug about 150 targets. Darn cold for florida. Can't swing the axe more than about three times without a null on iron. A silver quarter, a 14K ring and a 14K pendant for about 5 grams of 14K.

    Thanx for bringing us along. Love the green clad and greyish silver quarter. Shows that you're dealing with deeper down non-fresh target stratas.

    Looks like the ring may have been resized where the maker mark was located. Only the 14K hallmark is visible. Getting ready for another hunt after I finish lunch.

    Man, You were busy that day given all the targets, good, bad and ugly you recovered. One heck of a workout as I look at it and once in a while you're paid-off in gold.

    The British half penny is 1965. Almost 100 million minted that year, so not much value. Regarding the silver Washington quarter; for me, finding a silver coin on the beach is actually much rarer than finding gold jewelry. I've probably found less than a handful of silver coins over the past 5 years and usually only after big storms. That layer of old silver must be Deep-6! My hunt yesterday afternoon (Friday) wasn't as productive, yielding only two junk plated items and an interesting City of Pembroke, Ontario token from 1971. Looked it up and it is a 97 on the rarity index.

    No kidding every step there is an iron signal here in Florida. In 2 days I dug $11.52 in clad a ton of trash, junk jewelry, keys lead sinkers and one cool item that I think is a bronze ship spike. I am beat. Congrats on the GOLD makes braving the cold weather worth it.
