So I finally got out for a second time detecting in the local lake. First two hours were nothing but bobby pins and fish hooks, and a junk ear ring (not shown).
Then a kid ~ 9 or 10, befriended me. Usually kids are a pain in the ***, but this guy was cute, and kept diving, talking, diving.
Every time I move my scoop, he asks "Got a beep?" He must have been my good luck charm. From first talking to him, I started finding...
first a dime. Then a 20" silver (Italy .925) necklace, then a ring (junk) with "I Love You" inside, a penny, and a quarter. After a few more bobby pins, I told the kid I had to leave, but on the way out, I kept swinging, like any good detectorist does. Another solid signal in knee deep water gave me an 8" 14K bracelet, and I was done.
My gram scale broke, so no idea the weight on the precious. Both clasps were good, they were both just unhooked.

vpnavy, the kid said he had one at home. He also asked me how old mine was. When I told him it was a new one that I just picked up, he replied "So you have an old one? I need a new detector." with a big smile on his face.

Man thats a good day....I always seem to have an army of kids following me these days. First I have my own small army of kids in my nephews, son, and all there little friends....all eager to find treasure. Then there are the strays....thats what I call them.....they mob me up alot, and sometimes I don't mind, and sometimes I do. One thing is for certain...most times I've had good luck with the kids, and once I found 3 big chunky gold rings in about 45 minutes with a crowd of like 5 kids.....we all shared a special moment that day, and im sure those kids are swinging a machine today !! What a day...what a memory !! Im sure they all remember it too !!
