I received a call from James, at noon on January 2. James’s wife had lost her wedding band and engagement ring, in the snow, on Christmas day. James told me he had been pouring warm water on the snow wear the rings were lost, he managed to find the wedding band. He asked,, can you please do a ring search?? I asked my son, who is a school teacher, and still on Christmas break to accompany me. He has a lot of experience with digging tools and a pin pointer! We arrived at James’s address at 2:30 pm. James showed us the area, and where he had been pouring warm water, to melt the snow. We did a thorough search of this area, with numerous 72 hi tones, only to discover, under the landscape gravel, the filter cloth was nailed down with rust proof nails, that rang a 72 hi tone!! Before long, my son and I ignored every 72 hi tone. Eventually we moved further on from target area, into 10 inches of snow. soon in the space of 5 inches, AT gold give me 3 quick tones,,, 2, 72 hi tones, and a beautiful mid hi tone at 59. My son and I searched through the snow, by hand, and nothing! another pass with the detector, I said, we moved it! A few seconds later, my son nailed it with the pin pointer….Gorgeous 12 diamond engagement ring!!
