Adam called about the loss of his ring, a ring that had been his great uncle’s, given to him by his late mother. It had special significance, because it was a ring of a fraternal order that Adam also is a member of. I let him know I would be over to do the search as soon as we could coordinate schedules.

When I arrived at Adam’s house, he took me to the area of the loss, which wasn’t real large (assuming it had not fallen down the hill into another yard). Adam had borrowed a friend’s metal detector, a good named brand, and tried to find the ring, but was unable to. I understand why because when I began searching his yard I was hearing a lot of iron, so it must have been frustrating to do the search hearing beep after beep, not knowing what to listen for. It really did not take more than a couple of minutes until I was able to get the tone, and VDI number I was looking for. I reached down, and retrieved Adam’s ring, which was a surprise to him that the search would have been so short. Metal detectors work very well, but the experience of knowing what to look, and listen for is what enables us to be able to pick out the signals that make the difference, and not get frustrated ourselves. It was a pleasure meeting Adam, talking about our lives (we have similar extracurricular activities), and being able to help him. What a great time!

Adam sent the following testimonial:

Steve Smith is amazing! I called Steve after I lost my vintage Scottish Rite ring in my garden after pulling weeds. The ring was given to me by my late mother, and was from the 1920s. It has tremendous sentimental value to me and I was heartbroken after discovering that I had lost it. Tip: never pull weeds without wearing gloves, no matter how tempting. After immediately discovering my ring not on my finger, I told my wife. She found Steve’s info and I was about to call him, but she said to try finding the ring myself first. I spent several hours crawling around where I thought I had lost it. Digging into the ground well into the evening. I then remembered a friend telling me that he owned a metal detector and that he occasionally would go gold hunting. I called him up and picked up the metal detector wrapped in a plastic garbage bag. He told me to pull up the instructions off of the internet and wished me good luck. After watching several Youtube videos, I started to look for the ring. The metal detector began to pick up sounds from every type of metal in the ground, including years of nails, and other garbage. After about four frustrating hours, I gave up and called Steve. He came over the next day and I told him the story of what happened and my attempts at finding the ring while he assembled his gear. He then started to search and within two minutes exclaimed “is this what you are looking for?” I was amazed at Steve’s abilities at finding things. I really can’t thank him enough. We ended up speaking afterwards for a good forty-five minutes. It turns out we are both surfers and had a great time talking about that. If you have lost something, don’t give up hope, give Steve a call.
