    May 15, 2012: First Gold of the year! Can anyone recognize the maker's mark?

    My last gold was May 8, 2011, and it almost seemed like gold would never show
    again.

    A co-worker informed me that a local park was having some maintenance, and some dirt was moved around. Definitely had to check it out.

    I had hit this same park last year and found a few silvers, so it would have been nice to find another silver. My co-worker's friend had said that she
    saw a couple people detecting there recently though, DOH! But, no place is ever cleaned out.

    Within 10 minutes those small little hearts show up. Maybe gold
    plated at the top. One has Harry engraved in it, and the other one looks to be
    Virginia. Ok, that's neat, there has to be gold here somewhere. A few minutes
    later some gold plated cuff links show up. MAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN, gold
    will never happen!

    THEN, THEN... in one of the dirt patches, I get an
    almost lead-like, Zincoln-like signal. Since this place was kind of clean, it
    was worth a dig. Dig down about 6 inches, but instead of a zincoln... out comes
    a ring!!!!!!!! It looked gold, and out of the ground it signaled like a zincoln,
    which gold can do. I took a video right after:



    Then I took 55 pictures when I got home, haha. Cleaned the dirt
    out and saw the 10k mark!! Can anyone recognize the maker?

    While there,
    also got a nickel signal, it was a jefferson. Closed the plug and a few inches
    over dug a Buffalo! Let's stick the ol' Pistol Probe in and see if there's
    anything else.... got a signal...what the heck?? turns out to be a silver
    Roosie! It was completely obstructed by the nickel signal.

    Buff is 1937,
    Roosie is 1956

    I won't be able to weigh it for a while, but my guess is about 3 grams.

    Sweet looking ring. It doesn't look like a hallmark to me, rather a designer's name. Hard to make out though.

    Gold is always an added bonus for us colonial hunters! Congrats!

    Its Hard To Read The Inscription Inside The Ring But It Looks Like AROHA Which Isnt A Designer Name But When Looking Up The Word It Comes Back As The Maori Language(New Zealand Native Language) As Meaning "LOVE"

    Looks like my initial images were lacking detail and quality. I've attached a couple more images. It's three characters, then a 10k stamp. Under that, there are hand-inscribed characters that look like "CPC and then a big 3 and a small 50". It doesn't look like an AROHA ring...

    I think the center letter is not a letter but a crown or something. Here is a link that shows starting letters and the last part show symbols.

    Due to the price increase of ammo, don't expect a warning shot!
