Thanks LT! I wasn't finding a whole lot on that outing but it only takes one good find to make up for a lot of bad hunts.

I know about as many women who detect as i do men. Actually the women are better hunters. Pretty intimidating!

Thanks Beachhunt. No - found with a pulse detector so really detected the cross not the chain.

There are probably more than I realize in my area but I rarely see them. However, I do hunt at night quite a bit and in the rough surf at times so that may have something to do with it.

Over the past couple yrs I have become a strict night hunter. I HATE hunting in busy day. People in my way, I feel like a dork/loser sometimes and I generally just hate the distractions. Now if it's a glassy water, ultra low tide and it's day time then sure.... I'm down. As for lady hunters, in person, I've only seen one in all my years and she was more on the man side than woman if you know what I mean.

Thank you GS! Yes, I was shocked when I calculated the melt value although I can't imagine ever selling it for scrap.

Thanks Earl, Right place at the right time but that's usually the formula right?

Definitely not a scrapper! If you sell it should fetch a nice price. Either way this is a great find!

Amazing chain and cross boss, almost 26 grams of goodness is a heart stopper for sure!

Thank you Z, I love how chains always seem to be heavier than they look.
