Ventured out in the fog today and scored 3 Golds

I have not been out at all since my last post,been struggling with a baaad flu.
Finally felt better today and decided to venture out in the water.The fog made it really cool as it was so thick that I could not even see the beach while out in the water.
Water temp is bloody freezing now,but it was worthwhile :)

A nice 9ct bracelet from MHJ

A very unique 14k spinner ring

And another odd 9ct ring

WoW Yet Another Triple Gold Ring Morning

Seems the saying Fortune Favours The Brave mite be true after all :-)
Or maybe my previous story about the Gold Fairy has some truth to it...nah

I went out into the water just after 6am this morning(still complete darkness) and was fortunate enough to come away with 3 more gold rings

One is a 10k and the other two I can not make out the stamps

Ring returned to owner after being lost for 3 years

Met up with the couple mentioned in my previous post was his wedding band after all.
Turns out I found it in pretty much the exact spot in the water where he lost it 3 years ago.
A happy day for them and me being able to put a smile on their faces

Another triple gold ring day

I had one unsuccessful hunt with nothing worthwhile posting and then on Monday I went to a spot to go and try out my new wetsuit and it turned out to be a great hour in the water.
Three Gold rings...very happy :)

This last ring might have a bit of a story to it...I have been to this spot before and while there was approached by a young lady who told me that her husband had lost his wedding ring there about three years ago while diving(after only being married for a month)...She gave me a description of the ring and also emailed me a pic of what it looked like...and would you know it,less than a month later it pops up in my scoop in the water.I will contact her later in the week and post the results afterwards :)

Winter Detecting Recipe : Cold + Sea + Perseverance = Gold & Silver & :))

Hit the water once again early morning 8h15-10h45...Outside Temp 12 Degree Celsius
It is getting pretty cold out there....might have to invest in a thicker wetsuit than a 3/2
My efforts were rewarded though with some interesting finds

Three Silvers Some Junk Jewellery and one Gold

Found what appears to be a very popular fishing spot

Spent a few hours in the water yesterday
Untold amount of Sinkers and one big Silver ring
I suppose the value of the lead was just about more than the Silver lol

Silver is from MHJ

Can anyone help with this item
Looks to be gold painted lead
Measures 9cmx2cm and weighs about 22g
I would guess it has to be same era as the old lead toys maybe
