2hrs viewing beaches, 5 hrs hunting. This is the second most rings I've ever found in a day. 5 gold, 3 silver. Also a heavy silver bracelet and a couple of silver crucifixes. BTW, the two 14k gem rings tested good for diamonds, so I have to assume emeralds are real.

Also stumbled upon some interesting nails and a whosie-whatsit. Can anybody help with the strangely shaped item. I removed some crust and it looks like silver.

I haven't counted the clad, but I believe there are nearly 100 coins. Every time I hit a nickel with the Excal I thought "gold"

Sandy started it and the latest NE'er has exposed a few more spots. Treasure Coast is hot in spots. All finds were wet sand, except for nails and whosie whatsit which were at dune.

Awesome hunt! I can't seem to find any good cuts up this way and along with the sand the pull tabs are starting to show back up in big numbers. :BangHead:

Went back Sunday and spot was sanded in. Here today gone tomorrow. I contribute this small area to riptide and it was great while it lasted. It was only 100 ft wide.
