    Most of this post will be highlights from a bunch of very short hunts.
    This tiny gold ring surprised me.
    I was working a very quiet soccer field when a soft tone hit my ears.
    It is 18K with 34 diamonds.

    The chain may or may not be a watch fob chain. Either way it is a cool looking chain.

    This is the second pin fire shotgun shell that has jumped into my pouch.

    The really cool item from that hunt was the 1880s cuff button.
    It is the mother of pearl one with the cut glass center piece.

    This otherwise blaw hunt had one nice surprise.

    The cuff links on the right are not valuable.

    You see that ring is not junk.
    It is actually 12K gold over sterling (925) silver.

          I should probably read up on Canadian history. I am familiar with the wildlife, but not so much on the history.

          I love to find things like that pin fire shell Ron. They are cool pieces of history that many people would throw away because it is not the treasure they were expecting to find.

          The Kissproof midget item is a small lipstick tube. This is an ad from 1929.
