Short hunt big silver man's ring comes to light
Quote this message in a reply
Hello gals and guys, today I was able to get out for a short hunt. I wanted to go to a local soccer field but it was mobbed with men, girls and kids. Must have been over 100 depositors out there, running and kicking stuff around.
So, I detected away from the crowd and the yelling. My best find was a large man's silver ring that has rectangle holes in it. Has to be from the 60's or 70's. I got a clear reading on a penny about five inches down but it shouldn't have been - machine said
00 27 - I thought it might be a quarter from the sound. I dug down and there was a penny standing straight up about four inches down - on the side of the hole. I decided to check the hole with the pin pointer any way and up to the right I get a tone - I dig in and out pops the silver ring, cool beans....must have been why folks didn't dig it in the past - using a big coil might have produced a different reading.
The marble in the picture came out of another hole when I dug a good target. Too bad it is all scratched up.

Good luck to all

GREAT catch on that HUGE ring Tony!!! Ya gotta watch those 00-27's. I've hit silver halves and quarters as well as big chunks of aluminum and brass with that signal. The tone is the maker of silver though. WTG! And I love Soccer fields too!

Great ring, Tony. How are you liking the Explorer? Happy to see another jersey guy getting out, as I haven't been hunting since 2 Tuesday's ago. Too much going on. Supposed to be in the mid 60's this week...November. We'll take it! Yes

Yeah Diva, extra bonus, too funny. I like them too!

Joe, I love my Explorer so much I bought a used one as a back up, couldn't beat the price. Now that Pin Pointer I won is also terrific, that is what found the silver ring after I spotted the penny.
Thanks Ed, soccer or athletic fields are fun to detect, not to mention the surrounding area's can be good as well.

Nice thick ring Tony! Congrats! The marble is cool too, wish it didn't have all those scratches for you. But still cool. Thanks for sharing!
