Hello everyone, welcome.
Its been a rough couple of years with the plague. Hopefully everything will go back to some type of normalcy. I finally went on vacation to the Bahamas during the first week in January. Took the Equinox, CTX, and Makro pulse dive. Most of the finds were with the Equinox. Always have to have a back up just in case the equipment goes south. Dug many a bottle caps, pull tabs and pieces of foil. I did however find a bunch of coins, a few ear rings (junk) and three rings. I tried to spend most of my time in the water but I also did hunt the dry sand. (I would recommend hunting the dry sand when there is no one else on the beach.) I found 3 gold rings. If the one ring was only real. Turns out its gold plated 18K with CZ. The mens band was 14k and the class ring was 10k. I also found a few encrusted pieces of jewelry. I will take some before and after pics. Wish me luck on the hydrolysis. Anyhow thanks for looking. HH & GL.

Nice digs!

I always take a machine when we vacation in Cancun. The most common find on Mexican beaches (apart from pull tabs and bottle caps)? American pennies! :icon_scratch: Oh, and Hot Wheels cars...

Been super busy with work (75hrs this week). I will take a some before and after cleaning pictures. I have a bunch of coins, some sand encrusted water finds and some misc. water finds. I will try some electrolysis. First time, so fingers crossed. Here are a few more pictures as requested. Thanks for the comments and thanks for looking.
