Got a call from Matt who was referred by John Favno. Matt lost his very expensive wedding ring in the surf at Atlantic City. Realizing low tide and dark was coming in about an hour I rushed to the beach. Matt was unable to meet me but sent a screen shot of a satellite picture mapping the area. He said it was high tide and he was about waste deep when he lost the ring. So I went out at about chest high in the surf. I work my way in with the tide. After about an hour and a half I got a solid 15 on my Equinox. Then out popped this huge gold ring. I knew this had to be it. I tried it on and it was too big for my sausage link of a finger. I was like, wow this guy is huge!!! Ok so now I got his ring and guess what this gets even better. He told me he was in AC celebrating their 1 year anniversary. I just couldn’t make this easy for them! 🤔🤔I had an idea! I had them meet me in a parking garage because it started to rain. The parking attendant Lana gave me permission. When they arrived I told them I’d have to come back and try again tomorrow. I said I wanted to do a video to set up the find. I asked them a bunch of questions and then asked him to describe the ring. As he did I pulled the ring out and said “is this it?” Both Matt and his wife Tina were shocked and ecstatic. Even Lana came over for a big hug. Happy Anniversary Matt and Tina.
I’ve tried to upload a great video of the event but it’s too large. It should be posted on ringfindersteve.com and is definitely posted on my Facebook page ringfindersteve.com
A stellar day with my ring recovery mentor Edward Cropski. I got a call from a crying woman who lost her ring in the surf in Atlantic City. Then a few minutes later I got a call by a man who lost his wedding band in Brigantine. Ed and I went to Brigantine first. When Ed turned his machine on, the ring was right under his coil! Needless to say the family was much appreciative. Then off to AC we went. After about a little over an hour my Foxy Noxy gave me a solid 10 signal. Bam! There was the ring. When I brought it to her she began to cry tears of joy. Probably my best find to date. It’s very satisfying to return an heirloom when someone thinks it’s gone forever!!!
This is my official 4th and 5th recovery. I have just retired from 25 yrs of Law Enforcement service and can dedicate my time to doing recoveries.
I received a call from Josh asking if I could find this platinum wedding band he had lost on the beach earlier that day while throwing a football. Fortunately Josh had taken good notes as to the area that he had been in during the time of the loss which assisted me in a quick recovery. He noted which beach entrance,life guard stand and off to the right between 6-7 trash cans which are set up every 50 feet or so. All this information helped put me in the exact location to find his ring even in the dark of night. After a short 20 minute search I received the signal I was looking for from my White’s Beach Hunter id metal detector and his ring was in my scoop! Speaking with Josh earlier in the night he stated that he and his wife had dinner plans for the night as they were celebrating their 1 year wedding anniversary and that it would mean the world to them if I was able to locate and return his ring. I was excited to be able to call him and tell him that I found it and told hime to go ahead and finish his dinner with his wife and friends but he couldn’t wait to excuse himself from the table and meet me on the boardwalk. When I showed him the ring as he walked up he was just full of smiles and relief and was just so thankful for my help and was excited to be able to go back to his wife at dinner wearing his wedding ring. Another great ending, Congratulations Josh!
