Following being contacted I went out to St. Francis MN. to help a young couple recover a lost wedding ring in tall marsh grass. Doing some fall cleanup pulling weeds and cutting grass. It was during dumping the clippings in the into the compost pile that he noticed his ring was missing. His ring fit a little loose and wanted to get to get it resized. After loosing the ring, not thinking it could be found he purchased a new smaller ring. Meanwhile his wife contacted me and I mentioned that I could come out yet that night. I mentioned that I really don’t need much light, the detector will work just fine in the dark. I have a headlight that is very bright that I use while working at night. The area that the ring was last known was pointed out and the new identical ring was tested with the metal detector. It took about 10-15 minutes to locate the ring. To tell you the truth the headlight played as much of a roll in locating the ring as the metal detector did. I caught a good tone and the rim of the ring sparkled. I caught a glimmer at the same time the tone came over my headset. It was nestled down under some tall bent- over grass. If I were out during the day light I don’t know that I would have spotted it as well as I did. I think it would have been hidden in the shadows. It was so nice to find it so quickly. After some long searches its nice to get a couple that are quick.
When I went back up to the house I told them that the grass was a lot longer than I had anticipated. I could see his shoulders drop, you could see the disappointment. I then put my hand out with the ring and you could again see a complete turn of excitement and jubilation. You found it… It never gets old showing the found rings. With his young kids in his arms he slipped it on a finger for a quick photo. A story that will be able to be told with a happy ending.
