    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

    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!

    Yep... The cut in the ring will cause a lot of machines out there to miss or sound trashy. Great job on finding this one!
    God Bless...

    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...

    Great find, but yeah, kinda scary to think what you have walked right past while using those settings.

    I was going to say the same thing - the fact that the "ring" is broken will greatly diminish the signal. I'm not sure of the exact science behind it, but ring shaped objects tend to give an intensified signal. I've had strong signals that completely changed to lower (more easily discriminated-out) tones after I broke them in the hole with my digger. Also explains why certain washers and those thin copper rings that are prevalent around a lot of older sites in my area give off great tones. As a matter of fact, I got a tiny, ring shaped low conductor today that broke in the hole. It made no signal when I ran it over my coil, with no discrimination. But when I pressed it back together and ran it over, it rang in.

    I wouldn't worry about what you may have missed; I bet if you could reconnect the ring it would fall into the acceptable area of your discrimination pattern.

    Nice ring, I lowered my discrimination to below foil and found a nice gold and tiny diamond bracelet that came in at 17 on my fisher F75. Thats a foil reading on it. Makes me wonder what all I missed. GL and HH

    Some detectors have ground surface elimination, not sure what kind you're using but this could also be a factor. The Garrett GTI 2500 has this option and you can set it to eliminate the 1st few inches.
