What Will You Find?

First Gold + Silver

Only had the X-TERRA 305 for a few weeks so far, and checked out a site that has been hunted numerous times over the years.

Within the space of a few meters I came across a 9k gold ring with stones, a silver ring (a Mexican standard of 970 (97% pure) and a Cook Island 2003 $2 (triangular) coin.

Not bad for a site that is hunted frequently.
