Got out to find a few goodies this extended weekend. I found my first .69? Caliber 3-ringer. That thing is huge! Had a heartbroker with the gold-plated watch and also found the smallest buckle possibly ever. I had a great weekend. I hope everybody else did as well!

Tesoro compadre, which can find needles, but looking for something with a bigger coil/detects deeper, waterproof salt/fresh user friendly.

Nice assortment of finds.
Congrats on the silver, and your first .69 cal. bullet.
I see you got yourself a lead seal as well.
Here's the composition of the silver.

Nice assortment of finds shortbus. I may be wrong, but that rectangular piece with the hole may be the rear sight off of a rifle/carbine.
