    Smile Went for the gold...

    came home with platinum & silver
    waters getting cold up here - my GF went to Aruba with her girlfriends - so I headed to Cape Cod for few days
    waters were rough and could not go with my plan A - so went with plan B...again.
    cloudy, windy, no viz but was here so wanted to get in. I knew that I could get fishing tackle if nothing else here.
    was in for just over 2 1/2 hrs with nothing special to show for it - there was a storm surge from storm few days
    ago and tide never seemed like it got out much. Headed back towards my vehicle and decided to hit one last pass where they
    fish a lot and pick up some lead on the way out. Got a couple of sinkers and thought I might have another smaller
    one down deep and was surprised when I saw shiny band staring back at me in bottom of scoop. I was hoping for
    white gold or maybe platinum. With bare hands I can tell from the weight if its platinum but I had on 7mm
    dive gloves and could nt tell what I had. It could be a chromed junker - with mask on I couldn't see any writing.
    When I got to my vehicle I grabbed my loupe and quickly looked for a stamp - sure enough - pt950 - Yes!

    There is something truly exhilarating about digging an item of remarkable value out of the ground.
