Wedding Band Recovered In Weymouth Twp. NJ
On a referral from Edward Cropski I was contacted by Robert for a wedding band lost in a river in Batsto. Robert said he lost the ring on a beach where kayakers like to relax. I notified park police that I would be attempting to recover a ring and they didnt have any issues with that. After a walk of about 3/4 of a mile through pine trails I began the search. About the second scoop was a gold Jesus! About 25 minutes into the dig I hit a 12 27 on the CTX3030. Up came Roberts gold band. What a great feeling to reunite someone with such an important part of there life. Sorry for the blurry pic.
For the second time this year, I was approached on the Beach in Ocean City NJ to help find a lost ring. This morning, my daughter asked if we could go to the beach for the day. After checking the tide table and seeing that low tide was at 2:00pm I thought it would be a great day to dig. I was no more than 15 minutes into my hunt when a nice lady told me that her husband’s platinum wedding band slipped of his finger while playing in the surf with their kids. She said it was about a half hour earlier. With the tide going out and a general idea of where it was lost I went to work. I started close to the water edge and work upward toward the dryer sand. It’s wasn’t looking to promising after about an hour and a half. By chance I seen my friend Nick detecting and told him what was going on. I met him at National metal detecting day in Atlantic City. We talked a bit about finds we’ve made and it gave me a few minutes to reevaluate the search. I worked up a bit higher and closer to the lifeguard stand . Finally a hot 12 11 repeater on the CTX3030. Sent the T Rex in and missed but seen the ring for a second. Sent it back and there it was. So glad to go back to the family with the ring. Smiles all around.
Today I received a call requesting my services to locate a white gold wedding band lost while playing Volleyball. I responded to the Elmer Swim Club in Elmer NJ. When I got there , club members were digging in the court sand with badminton rackets. I got all the ring details and fired up the CTX3030. I started in the middle edge and worked toward the center using the net as a guide. Had a strong 12 7 within three minutes or so. Sent in the scoop and out came the ring. It’s so nice to see so many happy people. This never gets old.
While On Vacation in Ocean City New Jersey I went down to the 34th St. beach for an late afternoon hunt. I had a guy come up and ask If I could help him find a ring lost in the sand. They were located at 31st. Street. As we walked I started to gather all the info. When I got to their beach site they were digging with sifters and hands. The nice lady that lost the ring had swatted at a fly with her husband’s wedding band on here pinky finger. She had her spot marked out well and I assured them I’d find the ring. I started to fan out but didn’t have much luck to start. I went back to the original spot where she was sitting and asked him to move the beach bag. Big screaming hit right under the bag. The white gold wedding band was found. Was a great feeling to return a cherished item to the couple.
