I found all of this in one day at a local lake back in 1986 after it had been lowered about 10 feet! This is my best day in terms of total silver coins, total gold rings and total sterling silver! I've been back to this spot a couple of times since and it still produces coins and rings but not to this level!

I found more and better pics from this hunt!

This is what the beach looked like after the lake was lowered. You can see my detector laying on the sand and my Dad detecting behind the boast dock.

This is starting down the hill to the lake behind the previous pic looking back. You can see where the normal water lever was looking at the sea wall.

Here are some of the silver coins as they were found. All of the silver came out black.

The rings and jewelry.

Top row - 14 K bands.

Middle row - 10 K rings.

Bottom group - sterling silver.



Two of the wedding bands matched and were cool looking so I gave them to my sister in law and her husband. They fit them perfectly! I had the Masonic ring restored and I gave it to my Dad for his birthday. Later he lost it and we never could find it. The rest of the rings and coins I traded to Silvertowne for two Indian $5 gold pieces that I still have!
