    Holy crow! I'm not boasting--just trying to indicate that I live and breathe detectors. Besides, having eleven of them just means that you spend a lot of time at the post office. Ya, I found it, going right in behind pros who work the same section every day. I did post the "story" and thought THAT would be the mark of a blowhard--to go over it again. I'll say this: It came from in a lot of iron working with a DF--basically by way of tuning, listening and coil control. I credit a few things I learnt from Craig PI, Mike Robinson / Jim Pugh and a few others about how to use a PI --a lot of practice, and a lot of digs. These are the basics that I try to teach in my books--if you do things properly for long enough in the right place... The site it came from has very complex patterns with the classifiction of targets and the way sand is exchanged. I like where it gets more solid as the draw starts--not the mush at the bottom. I look for scalloping in this first part of the incline--stuff coming out of the hill. Got a tiny signal, compared it to my tester (6 gram) sounded about the same, dug and thought: look at this ugly stainless chunk of crap! It sounded "clatterey" like the fake silver they sell on the beach in Cancun (not from there). Anyhow got it home and it scratched 14K and I decided to keep it. It had been down long enough for the spring to rust out.
    ...did I find it...yer hurtin' my feelings...

    Thanks for the rest of the story. It doesn't and wouldn't have made you sound like a "blowhard".

    cjc,

    Nice find! But a "Gent's chain...", hmmmm, 31", with all those diamonds, possibly(?)
    a "waist chain" for a female?

    Awesome chain! Just saw this for the first time, really glad you posted it with the appraisal so those of us who haven't been on t-net very long can see it now. I love the pic with your diamond & gold chain surrounding your other beautiful finds. And golly gee, I think the small name bracelet may have my name on it (Andrea) but if so, I can't honestly say I lost that, hee-he. Thanks for sharing all this with us. Is it too late for us to recommend the awesome chain for the Banner? Andi

    Really nice finds. That chain should buy one heck of a detector. Could you imagine wearing that bad boy around and then losing it. I think if i wasn't a detectorist i would be as soon as i lost that hunk of moola! Again thanks for the info and good hunting!

    Re: "Bicycle Chain" Appraisal...$30,000

    When you posted it here, you never mentioned that you found it. (That's a pretty expensive "chain" to be found anyplace.)
    Well, the questions were asked, you answered them, plus (with the pic of a few of your other finds), so now it is HIGH FIVE TIME!!! Undoubtedly you are doing many things right.
    NOW......I hope that you locate it's sister......or, if you are hunting beaches that have seen wrecks near them, then I hope
    that some gold washes up under your detector. Keep posting......you give all of us something to aim for....and hope for.
    Can't find it if you're watching tv at home, your machine isn't on, and the head of your detector is pointed up!!

    Don't worry about it cjc, I have posted a 17th century French Sword "gold on iron" and a 17th century Raven Lamp "Could you turn on the light please" all in "my best finds" and after about three weeks and many hundreds of downloads I have had only a few comments, either people are not interested or they are posted in a semi- closed circuit, they are finds of great historic value but maybe having no stars on our flag keeps some people from responding, I am a bit disapointed since I wanted to share my finds with TH fans, so maybe I'm just to proud about them or people think they are fakes. You have so far 4274 views with only 28 replies and some of the replies are from the same persons. ??

    Anyways congrats on your finds you are one lucky guy, don't spend it all in the same place...lol.
