Took off back roading on the way home. At least 17 miles away from the nearest town I came across this place, which I just had to stop and ask. He said Sure go ahead. Off I went. A few pieces of clad into the hunt and I scored a skeleton key about 7” deep. Bunch of little pieces of flat brass and some clad later and I got a faint 92. A little different, but solid so I dug it.
Out I pop a 1944 S at around 8”. I scanned back over the hole before I filled it and there was a bunch of iron in the hole. I left the iron volume at 6. Great Day!!
I work up next to the old oak tree and about 5” I got this ring. It looks Silver, but I’m gonna have to test it. Looks to have one small ruby looking stone in the setting left. I’ll update after I figure it out.
Thanks for looking and Happy Hunting!!! Yep, I had to work Sunday.
Silver#33fty!

The ring turned out Bling!
