    I know the camera sucks, I will give it another try with a different camera. Just got back today from the same area, not as good today but still managed to pull two more rings, one gold one silver.

    Nice haul! What part of the state are you in? I'm in San Diego and got a couple of nice rings this week, including a platinum and a pearl. Got out yesterday and saw a little erosion from the recent swell, a few green quarters are starting to show. Bodes well. Welcome to T Net. Jim

    I work Huntington to San Clemente area, I am retired so it makes it easy for me. I just stumbled on this site a couple of days ago, I like it and will be posting interesting finds in the future. A buddy of mine picked up a meteor the other day that weighs at least a 1 pound.

    I am posting better pictures of the rings that I reported yesterday.

    Re: 10 rings in 3 days

    bigp2, I was wondering how you southern CA guys made out with that recent southern swell that came through. Thanx for posting. What kind of coin totals were you getting each day? Your southern CA beaches have potentially good ring counts, because the warmer so. CA waters invite more swimmers. Up here where I'm at, you practically need a wet suit to get into the water, so there's much less in the water activity (which equates to less jewelry losses )

    We too had some action on our central CA southern facing beaches (Santa Cruz for example). Several golds: rings, earings, a medallion, a bracelet, etc... came up after the erosion. Here's a pix of one of my day's takes. The big nugget ring is gold with a diamond. Haven't weighed it yet, but it's one of those that are big enough and fat enough that it reads up near zinc penny!

    the ring on the left looks like the ring my high school metal shop teacher made
    for an old biker he knew and that was 36 years ago
    I don't think it had a diamond in it....

    Very cool rings. Try clipping rings to paperclip. This gives us the top view of the ring. I've tried it. It works. Keep on hunting. Happy New Year!!!

    Nice job hunting, great results.
    Life is not the way it's supposed to be; It's the way it is. The way you cope with it is what makes the difference. Do your best let God do the rest.

    I have been digging with a metal detector for years...like 10 and have yet to find a gold ring...I guess its because I hate digging all the trash you have to. to find gold rings...to old to be bending over and digging all that stuff....so I just pop coins...I have managed to pocket a lot of silver coins...popped silver coins with my Dad for 3 weeks in an old boy scouts camp in Sacramento along the America River a few years ago, Half's, quarters , dimes for days..my dad still has his, I sold mine off when silver was high...
