Indian Heads and a decent ring

Just thought I would post some recent finds.

Been detecting for 45 years and had never found an Indian Head until this year. The pics here are numbers two, three, and four found in a lifetime of digging, all within the past few months. Oh, and there's a banged up Eagle Button in the pic with number two.

And the ring shown is probably the best one I've ever found. Sterling silver and 14K signet ring from the B.A. Ballou Company. Pretty old, it seems.

Still loving this hobby! Probably always will.

Happy hunting everyone! Good luck to you all!

Doh! Ring has been added.

I really like the Teknetics machines. You're right, the Omega is light and well balanced.

Really liking the Piranha too. Got to have something substantial to get into the red Georgia clay.

I found my first and only  IH penny last year it was a 1891 showed it to the land owner (a doctor friend ) he offered me $50 dollars for it,so I just gave it to him he put it in a frame because it was the oldest thing found on his farm. So I'm still looking for one to call my own.

Great finds.  I remember my first Indian.  It was an 1889 I dug in my backyard with a Tesoro Lobo Supertraq.  That was one to remember.
