Josh Kimmel's Bio

Many years of experience in metal detecting. One of my lost returns was of a silver and platinum class ring that had been lost for approx. 31yrs that I recovered one day while metal detecting and was able to track down the owner and return their lost item within 2 weeks. I enjoy being able to use the hobby of metal detecting to help people find the lost or missing items they wish to be reunited with and even offer my skills to assisst Realtors, Insurance companies, and Law Enforcement as well as others. It's a wonderful thing to be able to reunite someone with that special lost item they thought was gone forever. Some people try to find a replacement but nothing can beat the original item with it's sentimental value.
