Default Another first for me! So exciting!!!

I stumbled upon an old home site today while aimlessly driving around. Stopped in for a short hunt and my first signal was a wheatie so I was hoping I would at least find some silver. I poked around a bit more and found a spoon, not sure what metal it is yet. After that I got a pull tab signal. . . and I scored my first gold ring!!! A nice man's 14k wedding band. The inside reads, " Forever Your's, Cindy - 7-14-76 " I took a quick glance around, made sure no one was looking at me, and I did the ring dance! I even threw in a little bee bopping because it was my first! lol

Congratulations on your first gold ring find. The first one is always exciting and you won't forget it. You mentioned the "happy ring dance" with a little be-bop thrown in....wonder if yours looked as silly as mine must have?? I'm just kidding..although I did quit the be-bop part! LOL.. Gold Nuggets

I guess whatever works, right? Nice ring.
