I've found a few pices of silver jewelry, rings, charms, and pendants, and plenty of coins, but never gold before today. This morning's hunt produced a toy tractor, a 4 wheel drive toy truck, 3 ear rings of different sizes, 2.24 in coins, 1 egg sinker and a gold ring with an initial. Is it a "W" or an "M"? I guess it depends on if your name's Willard or Mary. The ring is setting on a scale. It weighs 2 grams and marked 417. I think that's 14K.
