Service Call 06/29/2013
I recieved the following email from a Sugar Land resident regarding a lost ring.
Hi John, I just read the story about Richard Browne in Mass. who finds rings for people and he mentioned ringfinders.com.
I checked and to my surprise, I found you in Sugar Land, which is where I am.
My eldest son was in our pool 2 weeks ago splashing the dogs and he says his wedding ring flew off (he’s been married for two years). I have a very old metal detector, and I am a rank amateur, but we tried to find it with no luck. If it did fly off, then it’s in my back yard, but we just can’t find it. My wife and I go out in the yard looking for it almost every day but we’ve found nothing.
So I am reaching out to you, to see if you can help us. At the worst I’d like to be able to tell my son it’s not there.
thanks and regards,
I made the short trip to Marks this morning with the new CTX3030 in hand. Mark pointed out the areas where he felt the ring might have flown of his son’s hand. I was initial a little apprehensive when Mark brought out his nice looking White Coin Master Metal Detector and explained he had already tried finding the ring. He said he had put another gold ring in the yard and was able to find it with no trouble.
That was a little bit of a sinking feeling 😉
I worked the same areas as Mark had previously described with his detector, and was not able to find the ring. I took a few minutes to think about the event that led up to the loss of the ring. I decided to work some a couple of flower beds well outside of the area identifed.
I opted for the hand and knees approach with my pin pointer on a flower bed that was riddled with metal distractions. The ring jump right out on my second sweep of the pinpointer.
Mark and his wife said they had given up all hopes that the ring would ever be found.
