Default Pandora to the Rescue!

I had to work Saturday School yesterday and when I got home, I had the wife telling me "not to step here and there" because she had just cleaned. Then my daughter tells me "not to make noise because she had just put the baby down for a nap". Thereís just so much I was going to take so I decided to have a quick lunch and go detect! Went to a nearby beach and detected for 4 hours. I thought the tiny dolphin earring was going to be a gold score, but after evaluation at home, its not. The silver bracelet is Pandora so thatís nice. It wasnít a bad day detecting but any detecting is better than hearing b*tching at home.

I think we've all been there. Come home from work and instantly walk into a buzzsaw. Grab the gear and beeline straight to the beach. Any finds are better than a hornets nest !

Yay! Another one of Felix's inspirational stories. One question, what is a pandora?

Are you sure that Pandora isn't a knock off it looks cheaply made... your coinage looks like you were digging in mud... we are collecting all the plated stuff and OBN is going to seed a beach up north for someone and stainless as well as it sounds like gold..

You made me go look! I think it's real. It's just not closed properly and is showing some wear. At least I know the model now.

55 dollars for a bracelet? Sheesh, two of those could get a decent sand scoop. ~100 ish is what I got it for after-tax.

Hey, Stop picking on Pandora. At least it is 925 silver and fairly well made and is worn by a lot of young people who like to loose it in the sand and it is a joy to find while one is searching for gold that comes along in about once in a blue moon now a days.


Better then coins.

If I see any silver I'll leave it for you I'm not after silver...

Come on over to where I am in Asia. 95% is 24k and sells for a fraction over spot.... The way it should be.

Pandora has gone down in resale value big time. There are so many cheaper knockoffs that are made of sterling but do not have the "ALE" or "Pandora". I can't believe they get away with it. Still, a decent find.

Yeah....Idk what all these guys are talking about. But i can't get squat for my "ale". I've got a bit out on the market. If I'm lucky maybe i get $10-20 a piece. Not big bucks like Felix and others claim.

Until you get home and hear bitching because you went detecting. 2 fold...

Otherwise you have the quote of the year!
