MXT Finds Mothers of Pearl Bracelet

My wife and I were metal detecting at an old school in a near by town. We were using our White's MXTs. My wife was using the 4.5x7 DD Excelerator search coil and I was using the 6" DD Excelerator search coil. I recovered this beautiful women's silver bracelet with what I believe to be Mother of Pearl stones all the way around it. It is very heavy and is marked .925.

I walked over to my wife to do a little bragging and held it out for her to see. Well she scooped it out of my hand faster than I could say " Hey Honey look what I found." I think she likes it. It is going to be a great summer for metal detecting. If you get a chance come on out to Idaho this fall and we can go metal detecting and Steelhead fishing.
