    Silver signet ring found , ring #91

    Got out this morning for a two hour hunt at one of my favorite school fields . I have been hunting this school for the past 3 years and it has given up some good gold and silver jewelery . After about an hour I had a nice solid +74 vdi on my Whites MXT PRO at 4 inches . I was happy to see a squished sterling silver ring in the plug . It turned out to be a small signet type ring with the letters JM on it . When I got home I did a little work to it and got it to look like a ring again . It's #91 ring for the year . The one other cool find was a Wells Fargo token , never found one before . Total clad was $8.96 .

    91 for this year . I hunt around 6-10 hours a week . My goal each year is to find #200 rings but the closest I have ever come was two years ago with #182 .

    Awesome ring, of course, but that Wells Fargo token is an awesome unique find. Didn't even know they existed. Great Job!

    Congrats on the silver ring Glen, great restoration job too!

    Here's some info I found on your Wells Fargo Token.

    "It looks like either an advertising token or play money, possibly a video game arcade token. The HH is Hoffman & Hoffman, a company that made arcade tokens before 1999. This token is .984 copper."
