Got permission to detect in one of the local elementary schoolyards. Only had about an hour to look before they locked the gates (yeah, they do that here).
It went something like this:
pulltab vdi28,
pulltab vdi29,
canslaw vdi23,
nickel vdi26,
BLAM! 14k white gold vdi24-25. 5.5g of sweet 14k!

Didn't expect to find gold at an elementary school at all, what a nice surprise!

Also got a 'solid copper' bracelet (it says so), a couple of arcade tokens, $1.93 in clad, a 1992 10 pence, and some tiny junk jewels (one looks like a wedding ring for a mouse:laughing7:). I only included a pic of the 10p because I've never seen one. :dontknow:

I'll definitely be going back!

I have found gold at Elementary schools often, but mostly religious pendants, not rings with ice. Nice finds, I have a copper bracelet like that it's supposed to help with a bad back.
