No Thrill Like It!

I found my first gold this morning on an "impromptu" beach hunt. I decided to go back to this beach I didn't do too well on previously, and then about 10 minutes into it, I hit this bracelet at 6" just inside the high tide line.

It's a really nice looking piece, however the stamp on the clasp was difficult to read, but I can make out a "585" with some sort of icon next to it. But everyone was right who said there is no thrill like seeing that gold glisten in the sand!

I love My X-TERRA 305. This machine has been in the woods, the lakes, parks, trails and beaches on the east coast of Florida, and has produced things that have totally fulfilled my needs of a metal detector!
