I’m feeding my sister’s cats while she is out of town. I decided to detect her yard a little while I was over there this afternoon. I’ve detected it before and started thinking how there probably isn’t anything worth digging left..... then I noticed her mushroom blocks had produced new mushrooms (shiitake, lions main, oyster). Then about 6 feet past the mushroom blocks I got a 13 on the Nox, turned out it was a little 14k band! I asked her if she recognized it and she said no and guessed that it must have been the previous owners (both deceased now). I guess cat duty isn’t so bad.....

When I read "Cat Duty" I thought that someones cat had passed a gold ring. That would be a good cat to have around the house. :tongue3:

Nice find!

Still super nice... love the "old world" look of it.

I would wear if it fit.

Thanks man! Someone definitely wore it for many years.

It’s to dainty by its self but I have been wearing on my ring finger stacked below my wedding band. :icon_thumright:

Nice reward for your good deed.

I 'll be thinking of this sweet ring when I do dog duty for my son in a few days.
