    White Gold and 3/4 Carat Diamond Engagement Ring and More

    Went out today to hunt low tide on the west coast of Florida with my CTX 3030. Like to share 4 neat items in addition to the usual coins and trash:

    My best find was this white 14k gold engagement ring with 9 diamonds totaling 0.71 carat (5.1g, 12:06 on CTX 3030). The center diamond is 1/4 ct. The ring was about 12” down under a layer of rocks. At one point in the dig I loss the signal but was not deterred because of the 12:06 reading and know it is a common experience as the target falls deeper in the hole.

    The second interesting find was a Robin AFB (Air Force Base) GA Challenge token “Above the Foe” and 78th AB Wing. The token appears brass (25.4g, 11-12:47).

    The third item is a white metal medal with “TEXACO” on one side and 2 dogs (Scotties?) on the other side above “LISTEN”, The medal might be silver (5.85g, 12:19). During low tide hunting when time is limited I usually ignore targets in the 12:15-23 range, because they’re almost always tabs. Glad I decided to dig this one!

    The 4th item is a Cremation tag (6.58g, 12:04-5). I seem to find 2-4 of these every season on the west coast of Florida. Indeed this one even has the city location (Clearwater, Fl) and crematory name (Northeastern Crematory). Warning: Cremation tags are BAD luck and must be returned to the Sea, in this case the Gulf. I’ll be returning it tomorrow, when I continue with my low tide search. Happy Hunting

    Lawrence,
    That's a nice ring. I have one question though.....does it meet your goal? "Metal Detecting Goal in Life is to Find Wife a 2ct Diamond Ring (so she'll be quiet about all my metal detecting)." I know it's not 2 Karats, but is it close enough to make her happy?

    You don't need a wet suit in FL esp on the Gulf side. I was in waist deep (won't tell you what I was doing) on the east side day before yesterday @ 9pm. I detect at night also.

    If you hunt at night in the water ,you are nuts that a good time to find a Bull shark or two and the water in the Gulf is 63 degrees, you wear a wetsuit if you are from Fla. night time is feeding time for sharks in Fla.

    food for thought
    largest % of shark attack happen in waist deep water.... then increase the odds by hunting at night with a machine that sends out electronic frequencies that most likely attract the man in the gray suit!
