Lost Wedding Band, Corona, California...FOUND!

  • from Corona (California, United States)

If you lost your ring or some other item of value, and you know approximately where, TEXT ME, RON WILTON, RIGHT AWAY-951-415-6007! You DON’T need to go out and buy a cheap metal detector!
This ring find began last night just after 10pm. I received a text from Tim K. saying “…I lost my wedding ring at the park yesterday evening. I know the area of the grass it’s lost in, I can show you. I was wondering if you might be available to take a look?”
After agreeing to meet at the park the next morning, I also learned that the city had cut the grass since it happened as well as he and his wife searched the area for a couple of hours until dark with flashlights after buying an inexpensive metal detector, but with no luck.

Upon meeting them at the park, I asked Tim what he was doing when he lost it. Tim said they were walking along and for some reason he took his ring off and started tossing it up in the air and catching it, and catching it, and catching it. And then he didn’t. Fortunately, he knew the small area where it landed and he marked it with some rocks. Even though the grass had been cut, the grass was still 2″-3″ tall.

I fired up my Garrett AT Pro, as my Nox 800 wasn’t charged. I took my own wedding band off and tossed it in the grass and swung my coil over it. A 55-59 signal. After pointing out an area where they had gotten a signal with their metal detector, but couldn’t find anything, I swung the coil over and immediately got a hit. I tried to locate it , but with the grass still being long I had to use my hand-held pinpointer. Yellow-gold wedding band located. I picked it up and while handing it to Tim said, “Does it look something like this?” He took it, looked at it, and said “Yes”, with a big grin on his face. You could immediately see they were once again, one happy couple!
