William M. says he has been on a bit of a roll.
Here is one of his nice sterling silver finds - Air Force
William is one of the Treasure Coast guys that does a lot of inland hunting and really likes the old stuff.
Thanks or sharing William.
Here are a couple of links to good information and photos of USAAF wings, including gunner's wings. Also some nice history and details. Read about sweetheart wings too. Good reading.
A few days ago I talked about mounting found coins in bezels. At the time I showed one bimetallic Italian coin that was found already mounted. It was not the nicest example.
Today I have a couple prettier examples of detected mounted coins.
The first is mounted on a nice pendant and chain, as found. It is all quality work.
|Gold Chain With Mounted Coin in Pendant.|
|Two-Escudo In Ring.|
Those are just two examples. I think they show how nice mounted coins can be and how you can do something with them that is a little more fun.
Fay is still out there in the Atlantic and not predicted to affect us.
The biggest change that I see is that the next disturbance heading West now has a 30% chance of developing into a cyclone in the next 48 hours.
They are now predicting a 2 -3 foot surf tomorrow and around a 3 - 5 foot surf for Monday. That still is not enough to improve beach detecting conditions enough. Maybe a few slightly improved spots, but nothing that will likely wash out the old stuff yet.
We are getting enough activity right now to keep a good watch.
