    Silver and Gold! MIT 1932 Class Ring, Walking 1/2 and cool button!

    ****************UPDATE*************Ring Returned!*********Scroll down to 2nd page***********

    GREAT day today! Went back to where I found all the silver yesterday (Great Silver day! 3 rings and 2 bracelets, 47.5g) but saw that the sand had moved in some, making the low spot considerably smaller. One other looter was in the area and after comparing notes it appeared that yesterday's spot wasn't that good. I did stick around for a little bit though and surprise, surprise, I actually found a small piece and clasp of one of the silver bracelets I found yesterday!

    I moved on down the beach to another low I spotted don the way in and man was it a good one! Not that big but I spent the better part of 2 hours in there and was finally driven off by the rising tide and increasing wind. (and I had to get home to cook steaks for dinner!). The cool little button was the first cool find. Looks like an old one but I really don't know much about buttons. It has a floral design on the front and the center piece is copper (not sure if it was plated once) and the copper piece (now detached) actually still has the thread in it that came out the other side. On the reverse is another design. Not sure if it is silver or pewter yet. Anyone know anything about it?

    Next was the Walking Liberty 1/2. No date that I can yet find but will clean it up some and see what comes out.

    I knew with the older finds and some lead sinkers gold had to be in there and it was! Pulled a NICE 10k 15.2 gram class ring from MIT! I saw the "Beaver" logo on it (ironic, I know...) and wasn't sure what it was till I got home. It's marked 10k (tested too) and has the name of the owner inside. I'm sure as it's 82 years old the owner has since passed on but it would be cool to see if there is any living family who might like to have it returned. Stand by on that one, I've already contacted MIT and will wait and see what they can tell me. Apparently the ring is know of as the "Brass Rat" Here is a link: MIT class ring - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Lots of other targets in the same spot along with ALOT of iron. Big and small stuff everywhere. I was really glad to have had the 8" excal 800 out there with the great headphones OBN put on there for me, along with a new coil this past year, as you REALLY had to listen to every sound and I was finding multiple items in each scoop.

    Guess where I'll be tomorrow! (if the sand doesn't keep coming back in that is.....)

    Thanks for looking!
