Gold At Last

I was behind a friend's garage and was with my Minelab Excalibur II. On my third dig of the day, I saw a gold band. I thought it was a wedding ring, but it was actually a heavy 1957 high school class ring from Maryland.

It was crazy! It weighed 11.75 grams and was worth over $250. The initials R.S.C. were on the ring, and the person who lived near the barn had the same initials and went to that high school. He didn't give me anything, but he sure was happy to get it back.

That was my first major find with my Minelab Excalibur II.
