    Petrified Canadian Goose and the Honker of a Golden Ring

    Got out for a a dive and a half today. Second dive was a disaster and had to quit. My right ear was throbbing for some reason. Maybe the beginning of an infection.

    However, first dive was pretty good. I think you can call three rings good. First one is a Boblo Amusement Park ring from Detroit. Second is silver and the third is 13.72 grams of 14K gold. Looks like it was supposed to be a signet but they either wanted it plain or were waiting for it to be engraved when it was lost.

    The petrified goose is a piece of driftwood I thought looked close to a Canadian goose.

    Three Washington's, a rosey and my second LEAD nickel out of this spot. First one as the indentation of a buffalo on it, this one is plain but is exactly the same size as a nickel to go into a vending machine.

    I did dive for two pair of Maui Jim glasses and a few other things and found them all first thing this morning. Another 110.00 to add to my diving fund.















    Please leave a ring after the beep. Thank You.

    Nice gold ring. You can have your custom tag throne on there mate. Hope that ear gets better.

    Congratulations on your BIG shiny! Hope you are not getting an infection. Your season is way too short to lose any time at the peak.

    Nice ring! Nothing like getting a honker on your dive. Hope your ear won't cause you any problems, it might ground you for good while if it's an infection.
    If the piece of wood was rotated over it would be an interesting looking monster.
