Sometimes you do and sometimes you don't, then there's times you get some and an almost trophy. That was today in SC at the beaches of N Myrtle beach. My friend and I cleaned up some junk, got almost 1.00 between us and I landed a silver bangle type ear ring and a silver ring that was over a foot deep in the wet sand. Finding gold spoils ya. It had been in the wet sand so long, it had a black crust on it. Here it is after scraping and buffing. The whole ring was as black as the outer edges.
