    Pretty darn awesome day... Broke 100 Silver on the year + Gold

    I shot ym buddy Mark an email late last night after I read in a post (on another forum) that he had today off. So I made the trek up his way and I'm thankful I did! He took me to a park that I had never been to before. Thankfully he knew the honey hole areas and the areas to avoid. He led me straight to the goodies! I can't thank him enough for today!

    The last time I went detecting was on another forum's group hunt on Oct. 5. 26 days without detecting makes Brian a dull boy. I reached several milestones today. I started the day needing 5 silver to eclipse 100 on the year (actually since June 8, that's when I started detecting again). Well, I got there plus one!

    Then to top it all off, I also found my first ever gold ring with the Explorer! I've dug a fair amount of gold in the water with the Excalibur, but never one on land with the Explorer! I was shocked when it came out of the hole. It hit in the wheat penny range. If you turn it on its side then it sounds like a pull tab. I just got lucky! Not only is it my first ever gold with the Explorer, it is also the first class ring I have ever found. Dated 1966 with the initials DP. No school name is listed and it is bent in such a way that I can't read the karat. It weighs in at a solid .5 av. oz.

    Signals were deep today. The SLQ was straight up and down at about 7". Another quarter was 8" and most of the wheats were 7-9" deep. The class ring was about 5-6", I can't recall, I was so excited when I saw it pop out of the plug, haha.

    Total Finds:
    1966 Gold Class Ring
    ND Standing Liberty Quarter
    2 Silver Washington Quarters (1941, 1942)
    2 Mercury Dimes (1916, 1936)
    1964 Silver Roosevelt
    BSA Neckerchief Slide
    2 Indian Head Cents (1890, 1900)
    31 Wheat Cents
    1927 Buffalo Nickel

    Yeah, it took a while to locate one online to date it. The only one I've found so far dates to 1958, so I thought that was pretty cool.

    Great finds, I love the Boy Scout slide, Somebody found one just like it a few months ago. I looked it up back then and here is what I found.

    The slogan "onward for god and my country" belongs to "ACTS":
    ASSOCIATION OF CHRISTIANS THROUGH SCOUTING (ACTS)

    Your neckerchief is from about the early 1950's maybe even late 1940's.
    I found an article that is dated 1953, and it talks about how they are
    continuing with it.

    here is a link to more info about it:
