Scored a little gold for "elbie"

May 03, 2021 01:49PM
hit a chip lot in big park, using the Troy Shadow X-2 and super 7 coil. the usual clad etc.. tootsie toys, a stainless toe ring. but lucked out with a thin 4mm wedding band.. Keepsake 10 kt. wally world ring sells $108 bucks. light weight. but still gold. the coin check nulled it out but I keep the disc set to hit nickels, which i find a good ratio of them. so if the coin check nulls it out and i still get a signal below tabs its nickel or ring chance. . pleasant surprise this time, gold ring. this lot has old iron under the chips in the ground from old structures, and they use a fabric fastened down with big spikes and washers under the chips. chips get compacted but running Sens at 5 out of 10 plenty deep enough.

the joy of this find was "elbie" Lyle Brooks, was my friend and hunting partner i lost Memorial day last year to a heart attack. this was his go to metal detector due to weight and convenience for a elementary school he hunted a few blocks from his house. i purchased it from his wife. Rattler heabphones, pinpointer, finds bags etc.. he was a great guy and this was first gold with it. r.i. p. ole buddy, i will keep it swinging. .

May the last hole i dig be my own, and will a fellow detectorist cover me up. And you can have the pulltab!
