Hit Gold! Ironman told me not to dig anything that read 6" or less. Had been digging 12-16 signals using the 17" coil that were reading 6"and was finding can slaw between 4-6". Got a 12-16, but it was reading at 9". I was using the 17" coil. Dug down a little over 6" and sold gold, figured it was gold anodized aluminum, about the size of a nickle. Then when I picked it up it was heavy. Didn't have my glasses on. Waited till Ironman got close and said I think I got gold. He looked and said it stamped 14k. After a little rubbing the dirt off it says "Love Always Jill" on the other side it has 12-25-67.

Nice! Now, where's the broken chain...
Grats!
I can't ever remember finding a necklace in all of my years digging. Since 1975.

My guess is who lost it most likely served . I hope he made it back safely.

Based on where he found it, it likely WAS owned by a newly-minted 2LT shipping off to Vietnam.

I sure hope the young soldier came back home to Jill.

So much happened in 1967, didn't have time to read all of them. My impression also, just shipped off to Vietnam.

The machines you have listed would all have a hard time finding a small link gold chain. The one with the best chance would be the CTX in gold mode and a small coil.

Thanks!
