By using that much disc, like missing pull tabs and nickels, you are losing 90% of the gold rings. Class rings should mostly ring up higher depending what they are alloyed with. Silver is very conductive and will respond higher.

Detecting fever comes and goes.
I know that if you get "pull tab" on your screen it isn't fun to dig but let me tell you that I find many coins that read pull tab . I know that in my country metals are different, so for me digging the pull tab signals is a must.

Most silver chains are in the pull tab area also.
When it comes to detecting, you will always find me "out standing in the field".

Lower disc.will pick up them gold signals,also the pull tabs and tops.If your seeking gold,your share of scrap will most likely be dug.That's just the nature of the beast.Good luck & happy hunting........................................... ...
