Another Great Day With My Coinmaster

I had another great find using my White’s Coinmaster that I just bought. While l was searching in an old home site about 4 o'clock in the afternoon earlier this month in November I made a great find. I was swinging around what was left of the old foundations and got a faint signal at about 8 inches for jewelry.

I almost passed it up because I knew there was a lot of junk around this home site, but instead I decided to dig it up anyways. It turned out to be over 12 inches deep. I found what I thought was an old rusted lid. It turned out to be a rusted lit on a mason jar. I carefully dug around the jar and pulled it out of the ground.

It turned out someone had buried a mason jar filled with jewelry, necklaces and a ring. When I return home I cleaned the jewelry up to find out exactly what it was, it turned out to be gold and silver rings and also gold and silver necklaces. I took them to our local jeweler to find out exactly what they were. It turns out they are over 50 years old.

For me, it turns out to be another great day using a White’s Metal Detector.
