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 :)
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
I had 3 trips with no significant finds since my last post.... and I was beginning to think the Gold Fairy had deserted me.
So I tried a new spot on Monday and spent about 4hrs in the water
Dug about 200 targets of which just about half were pulltabs :((
Two goldies and a Silver made it worthwhile in the end
The shell casing is a .303 from 1942
And the goodies
Silver and a Junker
I have not zapped the Silver one,so the Junk looking one is .925 and the Silver one is Junk :-)
Thought I would go try somewhere else today
No gold,but 5 rings for the day
3 Silver and the ugliest junk ring I have come across
I found a few of these bullets as well
Seems to be a fairly large caliber
Anybody have any guesses or know what caliber
The short one looks like a 9mm to me?
Here's a close up pic of the larger ones
They are not lead...
Went into the water this afternoon
Weather was not overly great....a chill in the air,which meant that I was the only one in the water
Peace and solitude...and no annoying questions like"What are you looking for" :)
Scored a nice 9ct bracelet and some junk jewellery
The Harley Davidson ring would have been great if it was precious metal...weighs over 12g
I went for a short holiday up to Doubtless Bay area ...I took the detectors with in the hope of finding some old stuff.
Sadly the Beaches were beautiful but bottomless sand as well.
Had a great holiday though
Back In Auckland-Went for a night detect last night at the low and was pleasantly surprised with some goodies
Verdict is still out on this bracelet
It tarnished like Silver and cleaned up likewise
I can not find any stamp on it though and you would think for the amount of detail put into it there would be some stamp somewhere
A nice Silver ring
Yellow gold band with white gold inlay
A pretty dainty 9ct signet ring
The other two rings on the main pic were junkers
