    Finally got out - silver and gold

    Health issues and bad weather on my days off been keeping me from getting out
    Hit cold water at pounded beach at low tide - slow going - everything faint and deeeeep
    silver ID bracelet went off as a "ghost" signal ... I always fan these to see if signal gets solid and louder
    it did and was glad I went for it - bout an ounce of silver - got a few silver crusted dimes and finally
    got a gold class ring - 1953
    Funny thing is - I got a ring pretty much identical except for the date (it was 1956) last Fall
    there - brass tag was interesting - has 1956 on it with a C.P. under it - I thought at first it was a dog license
    but think it might be a beach tag

    Keys were down deep - all in one hole - I kept digging and checking and digging and checking and kept getting a reading in the hole
    reading was faint and got louder as I dug down - then it was not as loud - so I thought I might have pushed item down with lip
    of scoop - one more scoop and I had it - a key - I thought that a few scoop before - target had gone off like a half dollar and
    scanned the sand I had dumped outside the hole - yup...multiple targets on the surface.
    keys look to be late 60s or 70s style - what do you think

    70s to 90s GM car keys by the looks of it. I've owned many sets just like those. Bet the owner had a few choice words once he realized those were gone!
    Great find on the gold too, congrats!

    Good to see your well and able to get out, And a Good Outing!! Congrads on the Gold and Silver!!

    Hey, I remember that crazy day I forgot my drygloves, has not happened again..yet..

    Like the dated beach tag, I've never found one with a date before, most a number and maybe the name or initials of the location.

    I'm falling apart head to toe - seriously - only joy I pretty much have is getting out there in the water
    missed the Spring land field hunting season - which I usually look forward to... by I digress
    Will be heading to Bahamas Memorial day weekend - so hope I will have something to show from there

    Here is one I got from same beach last year in same area - I was a little bit deeper this time with negative tide
    I don't know the school though - T could be town name - could be Technical HS - mascot is an owl - if I find the school
    can try and make returns

    Just realized the difference between the 2 is that the side emblems are reversed - 1953 owl is on the other side
