    1788 Reale found in NW Ohio Dried up Creek Bed ( Update Ring Returned )

    Hi all, Gary and I went detecting today in a Dried up Creek bed, here in NW Ohio. What a Day, we started off by spraying ourselves down with bug spray, that always feels good.

    Of course we dug the usual junk, beer cans, metal junk and so on. But then it started to get a whole lot better.

    Gary's finds for the day included a 1788 Reale, 1962 & 1963 Roosevelt dimes, a Really neat Sterling Silver Bracelet, 2 silver rings and a ear ring and a few Wheat penny's. Wow, what a great day he had.

    I found 3 rings, one I think is gold and one is junk and one of them is a 2004 girls class ring, which I hope to return. I also found some kind of token that says LOOK Savings Medalion, and a Mother Goose token that is really beat up. I also found a Rifle badge and eight Wheat pennies, the dates are really hard to read, since I found them all in the dried up creek bed. One of them was under a huge slab of rock, but I managed to move it and get the coin out from under it.

    We really had a great day, we plan on going back again tomorrow.

    We also found a bunch of new coins and assorted junk including 5 keys and a couple of allen wrenches.

    Gary and I got out today, Saturday, can't say we tore anything up. Gary started off by finding a Buffalo nickel, couldn't read the date. Then he found several Wheat penny's and a silver ring.

    I didn't find that much at all, my first good find was a Life Guard Whistle and lots of new coins. No ring for me today, but on the way back to the car, I did pick up a deep signal that turned out to be a V-nickel. Gary said that I always get my best finds on the way back to the car. I never turn off my detector, until I open the trunk lid of the car.

    We both found our share of junk items and many clad coins.

    Hope your having a great weekend.


    Hi all, I posted this tonight but they put it in the Honorable mention site. I returned the ring Tuesday to a lady in Angola Indiana. To see the post, see Another Ring Returned on today's listing. Moved by Jeff of Pa.

    It wasn't really that deep, but if the creek would have water in it, the coin would still be lost. It was down about 2 to 4 inches in the stone. What a great surprise for Gary.

    Way to go on that creek bed! Keep those finds coming. I have a creek bed I am about to start searching, and it is nice to see that there are great possibilities to be found. Love the jewelry!

    That marksmans badge is actually a Combat Infantryman's Badge - first award. It indicates at least three months service as an infantryman in combat. It can also be awarded post-humously if you are killed before serving three months. Stars indicate subsequent awards - usually in other wars. exanimo, siegfried schlagrule
