    Sunday's Heart Stoppers

    Hello all!

    Got out for only one hour Sunday. Went to another schoolyard. Found only $1.01 - 19 coins and a few jewelry items.

    Two of them had me going?.
    1. A huge "silver" Blingie chain.
    2. A "diamond" charm.

    When I search, especially with such short time to do it, I find the stuff and in the pouch it goes until I get home to clean them. Well, I was really excited, both of these definitely got my heartbeat up there, but when I got home, I cleaned them up and it appears they are not silver or gold, no markings. Oh well, a fun hour anyway, can't always find the good stuff.

    The chain gave a signal as big as two flattened out pop cans? dig em all!

    Someone had detected this place in the past few days. There were dig marks all through the woodchips. But the good thing was, the holes were all filled and he/she picked up his trash too. Nice to see I am not the only one who dig-gid and takes trash to the garbage.

    Here's the pics anyway. Dimes shown for scale.
    Happy hunting, good luck.

    Having problems posting the chain pic...file too large.
    I will re-take it even smaller tomorrow I guess and add it to the thread...sorry.
    UPDATE... cropped the hell out of the pic and got it down to 127 kb and attached it here just now.

    smiles!

    Nice finds Boobydoo- I'll take that anyday! If your picture viewer has a resize option, I recommend it. Should be under "edit" somewhere. I drop mine down to 600 or so, works for me and saves the detail.

    It's always a rush seeing jewelry - the $$$$ signs flash before the eyes. Fun even if it's not worth big bucks.

    Nice bling, Scooby.

    I downloaded a photo compresser for my pictures and scans. (Morpheus Photo Compresser) It works great for me.
