    12 Ring day! 2 gold, 2 silver - 200+ coin day

    Hello to all!!

    My second time out after getting clearance from the doc to return to work and life. I hit two schools in the same school district I hunted on the Sunday of my contest weekend a month ago. Both were nicely loaded with lots of finds, I was kept very busy.

    I while back, I told Mirage that one of my dream days would be to find 10 rings in one hunt. When I said it, I didn't really think it would possible, more like a dream. Well, this day, the dream came true. I had a pouchful of goodies at both schools and in the mix, 12 rings total. 2 nice goldies, 2 silver ones, and 8 junque rings. One of the junk ones is actually a nice keeper, more on that later.

    At the first school, I had covered all the woodchips and had a nice haul including a nice sterling silver chain and an old religious pendant. There was a nice little mound with two trees right in between two of the play areas and we had an inch of rain yesterday, so I scanned this area also. I found both gold rings in this grassy area. The first one is a pretty little kids filligree signet ring (K), stamped 14K. The second is a lady's inital ring (g) and stamped 10K. I was really happy to pull these goldies wooowhooo!! In this same area I found my first "Large cent" of the year.lol, it's a approx 3 inch diameter 1995D lincoln penny fob of some kind. It was hit by a lawmower too and gave a very loud signal on the ole trusty Garrett, thought it was a pop can. This school is pretty old, probably opened in the 1950's so I think this fall, I may get back here and cover the grassy areas better. Could be silver coins here I think.

    I found one old ring in the grass area that isn't gold or silver but might have some value to it. It's a Huckleberry Hound "Huck Hound Club" ring. It's pretty cool.

    At the second school, the were tons of finds in the chips. I was busy. I found both sterling rings here. Both were in the swings area, farthest away from the swings, near the edge of the woodchip border. One is a sterling spoon ring, very pretty and shined up nice. Stamped "Rogers and Oneita". The other one is a beauty. It's some kind of art deco style ring, with a large pear shaped garnet gemstone (I think) and is stamped "Sterling" with the maker mark " Kabara". It's a pretty cool ring! This school was old too, but I was pretty tired and my back was aching a bit, so I called it day and didn't search any of the grassy areas.

    It was a great day out there, I had fun and the weather was perfect. Here's the totals.
    4 - 1/2 hours total hunt time.
    225 coins for a $11.37 face value (lots of pennies this day...lol)
    Nice lot of keepers!! and lot of trinkets too.
    The 12 rings total - puts my at 102 rings this season! 16 gold, 15 silver, 71 junque.
    (thanks to PGill for pointing out there are 12 rings...dahhh)

    Thanks for reading. Best of luck to you all! Here's some photos of my finds. HH!

    Smiles!

    Any chance that "Kabara" is actually Kabana?

    BDoo,
    I see you are back full throttle!!! I could sit and look at your pictures all day. It's like a pirate chest spilt over. Love that Huckleberry Hound ring. Very cool. I haven't heard that name in years. Congrats on the 11 ring dream come true, AND all your other finds.
    What is the soil like up there in Michigan where you dig. Black & soft? I'm headed up to Northern Indiana this week with my son to do some MDing and fishing. I remember my Dad's old property being the black soft soil. Ahhhh.
    By the way, Ridley and I hit an old playground yesterday. Huge and still had some of the old metal playground equipment. I kept telling Ridley, "this is BDoo heaven".
    Way to go. Fabulous job.

    Whatever it is, it is valuable. If nothing else for the lesson learned or simply the experience of having been there.
