Stan's Ring

                                                                Stan’s Ring

August was a fine month for boating and beach going. The only moment that was a downer was when Stan’s ring slipped from his finger while mooring his boat on the BassRiver. The spot had been one of his favorite places to watch other boaters and the surrounding homes.

October came and Stan read about TheRingFinders in an article about Rick returning two class rings. What the heck, he had nothing to loose and he called Rick. A meeting was set for the next weekend.

On the last day of November at 1pm. Stan, Rick’s friend Dick and Rick were ready to walk to the location of the ring’s loss and start searching. The river’s current was running fast and it was about 2 hours before low tide. Dick started the search above the high tide mark while Rick started searching at the water’s edge. Each worked down the sandy slope so their machines would not interfere with each other. About 10 minutes into the search after only two pull tabs and one sinker Rick saw a gold ring in his scoop. A quick look to verify the date and then Stan was given the honor of taking his ring from the scoop and he immediately placed the wedding band back on the finger where it belonged. One happy ending with SMILES!

Now there was only one thing Stan was going to do and that was to get the ring re-sized.

A note from Stan:

HI RICHARD, I CAN’T THANK YOU ENOUGH FOR FINDING MY WEDDING BAND, MY WIFE CALLED
IT A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE. I WISH YOU AND YOUR WIFE A MERRY CHRISTMAS AND MANY
YEARS OF GOOD HEALTH.. STAN WOJNAR….. I WILL SEE YOU SOON . THANKS
AGAIN…

    Great Story! Im north of Boston and always love to see your finds. I have actually referred some lost rings on Craigslist to you when they are south of Boston. Hope you don’t mind.

    Keep up the hunt!

    • I will be glad to help any one down this way. I have also referred owners of lost items to other RingRinders as well. What a wonderful hobby and group of detectorists TheRingFinders are!
