What Will You Find?

OMG - Another One?

As a long time Minelab Sovereign GT and Excalibur II user I've had good luck walking over great jewelry finds in the southern NJ region. My trusty Sovereign GT had previously found two large diamond rings (in excess of $ 10,000 each) and so when I bought my CTX 3030 I really didn't have to work hard to get it paid off. It was about the third time out with the CTX 3030 when I hit the beach, and on the first signal of the day uncovered this 1.25 carat platinum diamond ring. Retail appraisal $ 8,500.
