1st Ring recovery of 2018!
I got a message yesterday from Alexis in Jackson NJ. During an argument with her fiance’ as he was walking alongside his car she took off her engagement ring and threw it at him. It bounced off his car and disappeared. She found me and 2 other guys threw the Ringfinders website. The first person there was not able to find it. I then went with my Minelab Ctx 3030 with the 11″ coil and searched all over the driveway and into the yard in the snow on both sides of the driveway in -5 temperatures. After 3hrs i too was unable to find it. So fellow Ringfinder and friend Dennis Burligame agreed to go the next morning to try as well. I also went back to meet him and continue the search only this time i switched to my 6″ coil as the driveway is concrete and had a lot of iron reinforcement which made it difficult to search. Dennis and i both searched the same area and decided to narrow down the area and even though we both went over the same spots with the 11″coils we could not find it. I went over the same spots now using my 6″ coil and right near a heavy iron tone i got a blip of a good high tone signal. I then moved the snow around with my foot away from the iron and the high tone came in much clearer. As i bent down to move the snow around by hand it was at that moment i saw part of a ring sticking out! If it were not for that 6″ coil i would not have been able to locate it!. Needless to say the customers were very happy! Big thanks to Dennis Burligame for the assist!
Got a call fron Dave asking if I could recover his ring in about waist deep water. I looked at the tide book and saw tide was going down so I was on the way to meet him in 30 min.
After finding parking I was early so I went where I was told and started my grid. Hair pin, hair pin and another hair pin. Damn. Then I see him wave from shore so I knew must be him.
He tells me his wife thinks he was more to the left so I keep gridin that way. Bang, very loud beep. Oh yea this is it. As I push the scoop in and go to pull it my handle breaks, carbon fiber.
I did everything I could to scoop it but couldnt get it. Went to my truck and did a quick repair. Back in that same hole used my feet to move some sand and two sccop later, there is his gold ring. It had gone really deep as sand was real soft. Aprox 18″ down.
Thanks Dave for the reward and a new friend has been made. Smiles all over and the life gaurds were happy we were able to help him.

Just after my late shower I see a voice mail, a young lady asking if I could help them find a ring in the sand. 6 or more people on hand and knee’s for hours could not find it. Took a bit for us to talk and I was on my way.
As I get my gear out and head to 18 th st I see three ladies waiting. Few min talk and we are walking down to area of loss. Ok its somewhere in this 20 x20 with one lady to my right sayin Like right here. I turn on the detector and say ok 5 min. I started at the far side of where she said and 30 sec, bam.
They all just look as I scoop, miss and scoop again and shake. Yep there is the ring. Not always this fast but sure made TheRingFinders.com look good.

They have a new care taker for grandma and they were now questioning her. I said I would be glad to come by and see if I could help.
After an hour of searching couch, under everything I came to ; No disrespect ment here, but I believe they are Right where you put them.
I called the daughter at work and let her know my feeling on this loss. Fast Forward 6 hrs later yesterday eve.
I get a call from the Mom saying, you were right.
I put them in the car when we went for a beach walk but didnt remember taking them.
