    Dig every mid tone in the woods?

    Typically I am detecting in the old woods where there was once a farmstead. Forests have taken over these farms 50 - 100+ years ago. Hunters leaving shotgun shells for decades litter these areas. I can easily dig 10+ an hour of old brass shotgun shell ends if I was crazy. They ring up as a mid tone in the gold zone. I disc them, but still end up with a pocketful every hunt.

    Yesterday's hunt, in VA, park with woods near my hotel, couple homesite dots in woods.Click image for larger version.

    10k adjustable ring, missing the mounted stone or element. I've found adjustable rings before, but they were dime machine variety. I wonder how old this is, what was on the face and if the pattern has any significance?

    FYI, I'm still not digging all mid tones in the woods, I'm not that crazy.

    Good luck out there!

    Congrats on the gold ring, I'm sure that was a shocker after digging shotgun shells. Hopefully you can pin down the manufacture date

    Thx, it definitely was a shocker when I started wiping it and saw the 10k stamp. Who would have thought...

    Thx! Part of the woods was obviously recent party central and littered with all kinds of beer and liquor bottles. I had to head deeper into the last dot to be able to swing clean and quite shocked to pull a gold ring.
