    I am not sure how you would date a ring other than logo and inside marks. I think I have Sommer Islands rings, but how could they have gotten here? Inside has SI and IC K. See silver color nuggets posted last month. Another ring is marked 925 and has boat/pig logo also. This appeared after Hurricane Bob. Also found was a medallion covered with rust. All good targets for a tesoro stingray. I doubt it is melted aluminum cans.

    Game over...what could compete with that Beauty. I would never get sick of looking at that. Do you still have it or did you sell it, I know what I would have done.

    No kidding. Makes all of my ring finds feel/look like complete junk. Hey Gary, my stocking will be hung by the chimney again this year.
