Rings recovered Fremont Recreation Area, Fremont, NE

from Omaha (Nebraska, United States)

Was contacted by rings owner after she searched for metal detectors on the internet.  She had been swimming at a nearby lake when she lost two rings,  they both came off as she begin to tread water.  I drove out after work and met her and a friend at the lake. Both of them waded out and watched me pull up a few coins, bottle caps, and pull tabs.   After about an hour or so, she went up to the beach and it was just her friend and I in the water.  Just then I had two signals fairly close together, one low and one high tone.  The more sentimental ring was made of silver (high tone) the other was a non-precious metal (low tone.)  I told her friend that I was pretty sure I just found her rings.  By the time I got the first ring  in the scoop(the one she really wanted to recover) she was again standing near us.   I pulled the scoop out of the water and reached in, I think she assumed it was going to be another coin.   When I held the ring out to her,  that familiar contagious smile spread across her face.  This really is a great hobby
