Got a call to look for a gold ring on Montrose Beach in Chicago, Illinois today. It was a solid 24K gold mens wedding band. I asked the owner if he knew that it was 24K. He said yes. It was made by a designer who had made similar rings for his parents. Since I had never hunted for a true 24K ring before, I wasn’t sure where it would ring up on my 3030. Since it was in dry sand, I used the 3030 which will show me the item very clearly. It rang up as a solid 12/47!!! Since it showed bright red solid on the screen 2 inches deep, and there was no trash in the area, I decided to dig it even though it came up as a quarter. BINGO! I was surprised it came in as high. Thought I would share this with you. Ive never had a gold ring come in that high on the screen.
