    MASSIVE GOLD RING !

    Yesterday, I talked Dad into getting here today at early dark O'Clock... That was so that we could make the tide, as we would be working backwards ... the tide was rising in the area that I wanted so badly to hunt.... I desperately needed to get there, before everything got sanded in after the Huricane......I hunted there the other day, but was absolutely drained from hunting in the wind all day, we called it a day, after 6 hours and over $25.00 in coins in the wet sand..... and to boot, they were mostly deep coins in the rocks.....it was brutal digging.....and for all of our effort, we scored 4 rings. 2 sterling, 1 small 10K Gold signet ring and a junker with a cubie in it.... Today was to be a different story....Dad being almost 82 years young, was having a little trouble walking all the way to my destination, so I stopped very short of the area I wanted to hunt.... we collected quite a few coins, but the cold north air was beating him up, so we headed to a smaller beach with the wind to our backs.... He stayed in the truck this round, and after about an hour, I hadn't much coins, but got a very nice sterling rope ring... Off to the place that held all the goodies.... tide was now out half way, and out of the truck we went. I said hello to an older guy out the water, he nodded and on his way he went... In about knee deep water, rite in back of the old gent, I pulled a huge 14K GOLD UNITED STATED NAVAL ACADEMY RING... dated 1977.... (No inscription other than the date inside 1977) It has 2 smaller diamonds ....one on each side of the ring....I couldn't get to Dad fast enough to show it to him... I think he said something like Holy @%$%* .... LOLOL This make 2 fantastic rings from this area this year... the other being with diamonds too... Got a few more coins, and another antique sterling ring with an enamel face, to make 3 rings for the day... Oh by the way, the ring weighs in at a whopping 30.2 GRAMS Thanks for looking...

    Nice ring. I find it interesting that it has a masons symbol on it but it is from the USNA.

    Congratulations on the excellent ring! I know EXACTLY how you feel!!

    Back when I first started this hobby, (about 30 years ago), I found a Naval Academy ring. I had nothing to weigh it on but somewhere around 1980 I sold it for scrap and got 300 dollars for it! (You'll need to check prices back then to see how much it weighed)

    The catch was, the ring looked like a large ball of gold with a hole drilled through it for the finger. It hit like a VERY large garbage can lid. It was in about a foot of water, AND - it was 18 kt gold!!!!

    AHHHHHhhhhh, the memories of the great ones!

    Way to go!

    HH!
