My best day for gold! A beautiful University of Notre Dame class ring dated 1957 and marked 10k. A short distance away, a 14k wedding band dated 10-8-60. Both found in a local park. The class ring rang up just like a dime, and the wedding band was a solid 80 on the Deus II.

Been around for 6 yrs come the long weekend coming up.

Congrats on the double gold, does the wedding ring have a date inscribed on the inner band?
It's inscribed 10-8-60, visible in the picture. It also has initials inscribed, but they're fairly worn and in a fancy script I haven't been able to make out yet.

Thanks-I was on the phone screen when I viewed it first.
Now on the desk top I can see it clearly.
62 yrs ago now-they'd be getting up there in age if still around.

2 older gold out of a park-really shows that folks have missed them or thought they were trash.

Gold is just so relatively uncommon, 2 in one day, not at a beach, is incredible- Congrats!
Yes! I'm thoroughly ecstatic over these finds. About 7 years of detecting, and these make only about 10 total for gold rings. Thanks!

Not necessarily on thinking targets were trash or missed.
The old park I shared in general discussion, all those years that I hammered that park..I Only dug high tones.
Never dug a single nickel or ring out of there.
