    Old park finds

    I detected an old park which dates back to the mid 1800s but only managed to find coins of the modern variety. Go figure that one. I'm sure there are older coins there just waiting to be found. There were so many targets that I covered maybe 10% of the park. Pretty sure I'll be going back!

    But what made the trip a great success was finding a couple sweet rings. One is labeled 14kt but obviously it's just 14kt plated because it does not have that 100% gold luster. Then the silver ring is marked 925 and has a very nice diamond on top with twelve smaller ones flanking the sides.


    ***Just came back from getting an appraisal and as luck would have it, the one big stone is the dreaded cubic zirconia.
    Oh well it's still a nice addition to my shadow box of rings.

    Yes I agree the older coins will be deeper but my Deus should still be able to sniff them out. With all of the modern coin finds, I'm thinking this park has not been hit in a long time.

    The rings also make it seem that way. Good luck next time
