    Oh Charlotte, I found your ring

    So I made the mistake of letting my brother in law borrow my only pinpointer this weekend. Didn't plan on doing any detecting till I happened onto an old brick road being tore up in the historic district. I knew by next weekend it would be covered up. Well I went out with just the Nox and garden knife. Forgot how hard it is to locate deep stuff without pinpointer. Didn't find the old stuff but did go home with a silver ring. It has Charlotte carved into it.
    Found this heart ring a couple weeks ago. I cannot read the engraving on the inside. It rings up the same on my Nox, 26-28.
    Hope everyone is staying safe out there. Things are opening up and maybe we'll get back to somewhat normal in the not too distant future.

    Any silver ring is a good one. I believe a ring marked "sterling" pre dates rings marked 925. Generally speaking anyway.

    I too have learned to carry an extra 9 volt in my "tool belt" while detecting. Before the EQ, I also always carried extra AA's for the detector as well.

    30 years in the hobby and never used a pin pointer. wave a hand full of dirt over coil, works now like it worked then.
    I like the rings you did good.

    This ring only has Sterling stamped into it. I just read that in 1906 Congress passed a law that all Sterling Silver had to have a .925 stamp on it. So is this ring pre 1906? The design just looks more 1970's to me?
    When I pulled it out it had a thick black hardened layer on it. Didn't even think it was a ring till I got it home. That kind of told me it had been in the ground for a while.

    No. Not magnetic. I believe its silver just wondering how old. Read another article online that just a sterling stamp was on jewelry up until the 40's and some makers still don't use the .925 today. I don't know what to believe online. I'll take to my coin and jewelry guy down the road.

    Very nice rings HH! I will agree with you 100% that its a challenge to hunt without a pin-pointer. Never leave home without one!

    I read that somewhere, up until the 40's, and that may very well be the case, although it's not carved in stone, if you were to make a ring, you could mark it sterling if you wanted to I suppose. When I have found silver with Sterling stamped in it, I like to think I have found a "older" ring etc. Anyway, as I said, any silver ring is a good one, nice to receive a little reward from the treasure gods now and then just for effort of getting down to dig and back up again. Anymore the getting back up again is the trick.
