Brandon was playing in the shallow surf when the special ring he was wearing, came off an disappeared into the sandy bottom. This nugget ring with 3 diamonds had belonged to his wife’s father, so, it was an irreplaceable family heirloom. Being familiar with that section of beach, and going by Brandon’s directions, I headed there the next low tide which was early morning the next day. After a half hour and not a single signal (good or bad!) I was beginning to wonder if this beach had been hammered by other metal detectorists the previous day at this popular section of PB . I continued on and started to find a few coins which encouraged me a bit. At about an hour and a half, I found the ring about 10″ deep in the wet sand. Yes! A pleasure to meet you Brandon and thank you for the reward.
