14K Gold Bracelet

12 Aug

I went out today with my XP Deus metal detector for the first time in almost two weeks. I met three guys from the Friendly Metal Detecting Forum  at a very old park here in Wichita. I have hunted this park before with my other detectors and the best I had ever found there were wheat cents.

This morning, after about 20 minutes I found a gold bracelet about four inches down. I knew it was gold the second my eyes laid on it.

I get the Gold!

Although there were no markings on the chain, there was no doubt in my mind this was the real deal. I tested it with my acid test and sure enough, it’s 14K and not plated.

The XP Deus is quickly on its way to paying for itself and every other detector I’ve owned!

      Thanks! I had just gotten to the point where my greed was somewhat in check. Now is full blown on! Gold will do that to you. 🙂
