Home Metal Detecting

End of the season for me...

I'm thinking it's the end of the season for me as the weather is changing and it's getting colder, so my totals as of yesterday are as follows... Attached images are the two rings I found yesterday... One silver for sure with stones all around it and the other I believe is 12k white gold doesn't feel like silver to me. Going to take to a jewler to get tested as the mark is extremely dirty there for difficult to get a definitive reading.

    Plus, you can add fresh air and exercise to your list. Congrats on a successful season.

    In my experience here in Northern Illinois, it's not unusual after an initial freeze for the weather to warm up enough for metal detecting at least a few times during the winter.

    Several times over the years I've thought my season was over and then two weeks later the temperatures were in the 40s or higher.

    @gene2393... Great totals... When you listed 'cash', I assume you mean paper currency. Cheers, RickO

    That is great... Hard to find in the wild. The only one I have found in the wild was in the Coinstar reject bin. None in change, and I purchase with cash a lot. Cheers, RickO

    I use cash my self 99 percent of the time and still have only found 2, it's crazy to think how many could still be out there
