It had been a couple of weeks since I had time to hunt so today finally had a couple of hours here at the park. Pulled out a bunch of pull tabs and bottle caps along with aluminum cole slaw. As I was swinging heading to my car I dugged a solid 66-67 by the slides for the kids and my first ring popped out (looks like it used to be silver plated...😁) but it's a ring anyways. A couple more yards and I found a broken rosary (this seems to be silver with wooden beads. I sat down here at a table to dump all my trash at the trash can and BOOM!!!! $0.26 surface find.

Thanks guys. Here pics after cleaning, took both the ring and rosary to local jeweler and both are silver. The ring showed markings, I put it under microscope and appeared .925 MEX (Mexican Silver) and was confirmed, rosary had no markings but also confirmed silver. It was a Silver Day Today.
