My 12 year old grandson's first hunt on Friday. Both the ring and bracelet are 14k GOLD!

The ring was his second find in the morning hunt at the tot lot and the bracelet was his third find at the afternoon tot lot hunt. Same lot about 10 feet apart!

Unbelievable! :blink: :woohoo: B) :cheer:

The bracelet weighs 7 pennyweight.

Welcome the new Gold Magnet!

I agree, unbelievable!! ;)

I am a firm believer in beginner's luck.
Can't say why it happens but it happened to me a couple times too.
-Could be an uncluttered open mind the first time not knowing what to expect.
-Could be a 1st time beginner doesn't over complicate the situation with past history and just goes with instinct.
or
-Could be a beginner is predestined for the hobby, sport,etc., a subconscious predetermined 'hook' so to speak.

Most of my best finds are when i wasn't expecting them. Yep, a surprise! :)
At any rate, those are finds a veteran detectorist would be proud of.

I'd say odds are pretty good your grandson is gonna be hooked for life on metal detecting. :)

Tot lots are potentially a good place to find jewelry. I observed women playing and focusing on their kids not paying attention to anything else including dropped jewelry.

What detector was your grandson using?
