    Gold, Silver Wing, Buffalo, War Nickel Etc.

    These finds are from 3 different hunts. Two hunts occurred on Friday night and the other hunt was yesterday. The first hunt on Friday night produced what looks like the part of a cross that is marked .925. The other notable find is this silver .925 bracelet.

    The second hunt on Friday night produced this gold crucifix which is missing the bail. The bale must have held the gold mark, lots of Mexican and Taiwan jewelry have bale marks. It looks to be a white gold crucified Jesus and a yellow gold cross. This park has so much clad I stopped hunting because it was getting late and I was tired. I intended to go back early the next morning but I didnít.

    Yesterdayís hunt netted me a sterling silver wing badge, 1 buffalo nickel, a 1945 war nickel and 11 wheatís.

    Nice going! Don't see how you could be tired. LOL. Love the wings and I'd hazard a guess that the cross is probably 14K, just judging by some that I've seen in the past. WTG! HH!
