    Small Yard = Small Finds and Small Ring

    This is my third time to this little yard from 1920, and sadly, these are the best finds from there yet. One of the cents is a 51 wheat, the oldest coin from the yard but it was only an inch deep. I think the chunk of metal is from an old toy car, the deepest find so far at 5 inches. I can't read the stamp on the child's ring and aren't even sure if it is right side up, any help would be appreciated.

    SS,

    nice finds; if you got the wheat, could be silver there.

    have a good un.................

    My first two hunts there were all for silver, but found none. I keep taking pictures of the ring trying to read the stamp and if you use your imagination on this one it could say STERLING... I keep trying to make out CHINA or TAIWAN but can't do it. I know it's a cheap ring but want to know more!!!

    I would say it said STERLING and that it was not a childs ring. They used to value sterling more and even had wedding rings made in this style. I have some Sorry don't know the year but over 30 years old.
    I say nice finds!

    When you get into a tight place and everything goes against
    you till it seems you could not hold on a minute longer,
    never give up then for that is just the place and time that
    the tide will turn.
