Ed called me last Monday asking if I would be able to help him find his ring which he lost playing volleyball. I said I could, and we arranged to meet the next day. We met at the location, where he showed me what he was doing, and where he thought the ring had come off. I proceeded to search, and got a real nice hit about 20 minutes into the search. When I dug I received a bottle cap, and swung my coil over the area again, with no reply. I went on to search the whole court, and quite a bit of the area outside the court, with no results.
There were people who were arranged outside the court, and I did not want to burden everyone to move all of their stuff for me to search, so I mentioned to Ed that I would come back later in the evening when the people had moved. I only had that one good hit earlier, and told Ed that before I left for the afternoon, I would go to that spot again and recheck. I did and increased the sensitivity on my detector, and low and behold I heard the good sound I had heard before, which registered at about 10 inches. It took a few digs with the scoop until I was looking at the ring in its bottom. Well as you can see by Ed’s smile I was able to make his day.
If you lose your ring or other metal item of value, don’t buy a metal detector or rent a metal detector, but call one of the members of this directory. Look at the different metal detecting Ring Finder blogs and read their success stories, then call them ASAP, and they will work hard for you to find what you thought might never be found again.
I search, Cabrillo Beach, Hermosa Beach, Huntington Beach, Long Beach, Malibu, Manhattan Beach, Newport Beach, Redondo Beach, Santa Monica, Seal Beach, Torrance Beach, Venice Beach, and all parks, yards, gardens, and ponds (to 5 foot depths) in Orange County and Los Angeles County.
