found gold ring and omg it scared me
whilst out detecting a local wood chip play area I came found this ring looks like 9ct. The reason it scared me was because I eye balled it lying on top of the wood chips. I ran my detector over the top of it and guess what nothing not even a beep it was as if it wasn't there and yet I was finding coins at good depths. I was running in dual discrimination with zero on setting one and around iron on discrimination two.
Just makes me think what else have I missed in the last years currently saving for a newer machine.
Best wishes double M

Detecting fever comes and goes.
What detector are you using
Jun 10, 2012, 02:50 PM
The break in the ring makes it respond much less to your detector. It appears to be rather light also...maybe 2g range?
Light gold like that will hit in the iron range an be discr'med out too...depending on your settings. I'd experiment with that.
Nice eyeball find, anyways!

I experimented with a gold hoop earring I recently bought. First checked with the ear post latched, got a gold signal. Then I unhooked the latch and tried again... no signal. Not sure what can be done about it...
