    PLATINUM with Diamonds - UPDATE

    PLATINUM! Oh man did this get my heart pumping!

    My local beach, I've nick-named Erosion Beach, lived up to it's name again. After the winter storms we had there were some terrific cuts and last week I made out with a dozen Silver coins, a Silver ring and even a Buffalo nickel. I PM'd my good buddy and told him about the erosion. He was there early the next morning and it was still early when I got a phone call from him. Yep ... he found a Gold ring ... with diamonds ... and just inches from some of the holes I made. Arrrggh ... well I was thrilled it was him (if it couldn't be me).

    Yesterday the erosion was even more extensive. Lots of older clad and a couple of Silver Rosies and I was having a ball! Then I spot a pulltab only partially covered in the sand. I swung my coil over the spot and was ready to put the "pulltab" in my trash pouch.

    YIKES...it was a RING! It looked too good to be true and I thought junk ring. I sat down, took off my glasses and read the mark: PT 950. YES! YES! and those diamonds looked too good not to be real...plus it's Platinum!

    It was almost on the surface and found with my White's Surfmaster PI+.

    I am glad I got something worthwhile to post here.

    Gotta Love this hobby

    HH Joe

    UPDATE: I've added a photo Montage of all the Gold and Platinum finnds from this particular small beach.

    PS: I had promised my next Gold ring to my new bride and though strictly speaking it wasn't Gold she got it anyway...and I think she likes it.

    Ooohhh yeah! That's awesome. Way to go! I'm guessing you have had great success at this same location before?

    Your wife is one lucky girl
    When you feel down because you didn’t
    get what you want, just sit tight and
    be happy, because God is thinking of
    something better to give you.
