Beware of the icy grip that Jack Frost has on your rings. If you live in part of the world where winter means snow and cold and it is necessary to scrape ice off your car windshield or dust snow from the same make sure you are wearing gloves. Unfortunately, Davis like many forgot that fingers shrink in the cold and while clearing his car of snow and ice lost his ring. That’s where the Ring Finders come in, upon searching the Internet for a metal detector he stumbled upon our web page www.theringfinders.com and called me for help. We agreed on a time to meet and I met up with him at his home where he showed me his parking area roughly 3 meters by 3 meters with about 5 cm of snow on the area. Davis was sure it should be in the area and with that, I started a grid pattern of the area.
For you folks with detectors out there; I had my Garrett ATPRO set one notch down from max sensitivity, everything notched out with the exception of 40 – 65 and iron audio off as this area was heavy with subterranean litter.
I started out close to the fence hearing the odd murmur of junk and nails but that’s not the sound I was listening for, then I heard a nice bright tone, I swung over the target a couple of times before looking for it visually, when Davis’ lovely wife lunged forward and grabbed at the snow I had just sept away with my coil and with a squeal of joy she held the lost treasure in her hand. Jubilant smiles beamed in the dark of the winter evening and it was hugs all around. Another very happy customer of The Ring Finders. Thank you, Davis, for the generous reward.
