Hey gang......haven't had anything to post recently. Been a real dry spell.

I couldn't decide where I wanted to go today.....gas was little low, so I decided to stay fairly close to home. I hit a couple a regular stops and didn't get very much. After getting frustrated....I decided to hit one of my favorite schools. I usually score a couple of bucks in clad with a surprise dollar coin occasionally. I wasn't finding too much to start with.....and I was thinking to myself that I haven't ever found any jewelry at this school and I was well overdue! Then underneath the monkey bars, I got a iffy signal and could see a little shiny piece under the sand. It didn't take much to unearth the little silver flip flop earring. It has some stones in it, but they are probably CZ's. I kinda smiled to myself and thought, Now, wouldn't it be nice of this child to lose the other one so that I could have a pair? Six inches later, there was the second! I was tickled! :tongue3: They look gold in the pic and I have cleaned them, but they are clearly marked as you can see.
The religious medal came from a park I hit occasionally. I call it the Hispanic park....I have been hoping to score some gold from there, and I'm not sure I did today. It's not marked, but it sure is pretty. It will go in my collection.

It wasn't a great day, but not a bad one either. Silver any day is wonderful! Hope you all found something cool today as well.

Happy Hunting!
Moon

Rare to get a pair :thumbsup:
925 is the Sterling Silver standard, but I guess you just meant they looked like gold, which they do 8)

WTG Cindy :thumbsup: Good to see you posting again. Nice job on the finds, the earrings are cool! I only found a matching pair once, but they were junky, not nice ones like yours. Are you going to wear them?

Nice job,
Nat

Yes....I thought so too Dave, but it isn't marked. When I looked at it closer with the loupe, it looked a little rough. It might be plated though. I'll have to have it tested to know for sure.

Thanks everyone for your kind replies! Hope you all find something cool today.

HH,
Moon
