A very nice gentleman in St. Paul realized that he was missing his large gold wedding band the evening after raking leaves in his back yard. He and his wife searched everywhere for it several times, but came up empty handed.
3 days later, a buddy and I came out and went over his back yard inch by inch with a metal detector. It was a tedious search with lots of leaves and planters and furniture on the ground. Bits of foil and other metal objects were everywhere but after about an hour into the hunt, I got a loud low-conductive tone on my detector which turned out to be the big ring hiding under some leaves near the back door of the house.
Husband and wife were very happy to get their ring back and it was a wonderful experience for all of us!
