    3rd time out with the E-trac brings Gold!!

    I love reading about everyones finds here and wanted to share my latest!

    I'm still very new to the etrac, I've read Andy’s book and watched countless vids. I ran everything of value that I could find in the house under the coil to get a sense of what the numbers and sounds are like. Even made a test garden with coins buried at different depths to get some real world numbers . All I can say is it's been worth every second because it gave me a good idea of just what to look for with great results.....

    I decided to hit my yard once again tonight, and after finding a wheatie, I got a 12-11 hit at 3 inches. I hit all sides and it was pretty consistent. So I dig and reach in thinking clad nickel and my fingers went through what should've been the center of the coin. I start pulling on it and noticed it was attached to what I thought was a string (an earring with a feather came to mind) as I shine some of my pro pointer light on it I see the stone and it hits me....gold engagement ring!! What an awesome 15 minutes in the dark!! I wanted to clean it up so badly to read what probably said made in china on the inside, but I needed to get a few pics of it with this so called STRING still attached...lol So after cleaning her up, I look inside and there it was...10k. I'm not a jeweler so I have no idea if the stone is real or not, what do you guys think, does it look real to you??


    This is my second gold ring this year (first was a thin 18k woman’s band 3 weeks back) and first nice find with the etrac. The funniest thing is I haven't found any silver yet since I started md'ing at all. But I find 2 gold rings, how in the world does that happen?? Not that I'm complaining

    Guys there's nothing like the thrill of what your next find could be, absolutely love this hobby!!

    The grass must of kept it from sinking, I've owned my house for 8 years so it's been there at least that long.

    Excellent find! It's been awhile since I've pulled a gold ring. Great feeling!!
    I suggest taking it to a jewelery store or one of the places where they buy scrap gold. They most likely have one of those small pen like probes that measures the heat conductivity of the stone and can tell you if it's CZ or a real diamond.

    Very nice ring...Most real diamonds are usually vented under the setting..I see there the open vent under the diamond...So most likely it is real..The reason they do that so the diamond don't crack and it can breath... So you may have the real thing...But don't quote me 100%...Also when you see it in a real gold setting is usually a good sign also...I hope it is real and what a find...

    Don't want to pop your bubble, if you wash the diamond with soapy and it doesn't sparkle, it's not real. Hope it is, at least it's gold.
