From the land of the Bluenose.....was watching a youtube vid the other day and the fellow used a magnifying glass to help with close ups so I thought I would give it a try using a 4x glass that I use to look for watermarks on stamps.

Took about 5 photos to get it right but here is the hallmarks from the 18K and 10K white gold rings I found last week.

Since Marie was off work today with a touch of the flue I took the opportunity to get out a digging for a couple of hours at a playing field. Used the old Freedom 3 Plus which works well enough when you swing it at a super slow speed so that it doesn't always false. Still a great machine! An hour and 35 and I had a quota of 53 coins @$5.47

After making a bowl of hot soup for Marie I got to hang our newest photo which we had purchased in the Dominican. "Selena the Ballerina" is our first non Van Meere painting!
