I received a call from Mike out in Voorhees yesterday looking for some help recovering his college ring he lost while cleaning up his backyard a few days ago.
He knew the area he was working in so it had to be close but with the leaves it was hidden from sight. After about a half hour of searching I got the hit I was looking for and ge was reunited with his cherished ring!
Another happy customer!
I received a girl from a woman asking for my help finding her lost class ring that she had lost on the beach earlier in the week? She explained that she had taken the ring off to apply sunscreen and laid it on her beach towel but had forgotten to put it back on and didn’t realize util later that evening while home.
I was able to go to the section of beach the following morning to begin my search. This could a tough one as its not only a heavily searched beach by others with metal detectors but also gets groomed by the beach rake tractor daily that can not only move the ring but also bury it deep in the sand. The good thing was that where she was sitting by the rock jetty and the beach entrance is also a turn around point for the beach tractor and many things accumulate in this area rather than disappear quickly. I began searching the area using a grid pattern back and forth towards the water picking up multiple coins and trash items for the next hour. As I got closer to the rock jetty and large drainage pipe I began getting false signals from detector from the iron and minerals so I turned down the sensitivity some and proceeded until I was right on top of the rocks and pipe buried just beneath the sand and that’s when I got a good signal from my metal detector. I scooped up the sand and as I shook the scoop I could hear something clanking around which turned out to be her class ring! We met up the next weekend for the return. Another successful recovery! Another happy customer!
I received a call from a woman asking if I could locate her husbands wedding band that they believe was lost in their backyard while doing yard work this weekend.
As I just finished up a successful lost ring recovery earlier this morning I decided to see if I could make it 2 for 2 and headed out to her home. Arriving at the house I was greeted by the wife who then took to the small backyard but there were not only many small garden beds but piles of weeds,grass some of which was already bagged so this was going to be another challenge today. I decided to use my White’s V3i metal detector and small searchcoil.
After searching all of the garden beds and lawn area I still had no ring so even though I felt kind of bad dumping out the bags of grass they had it was the only place left I felt the ring could be if in fact it was lost there at all? Dumping 3 out of 5 bags and still no ring I dumped the 4th,spread out the contents and waved my searchcoil across the debris “Bam!” a load response came from the detector. I got started running my fingers through the grass clippings and out popped the gold ring! I called her over and just when she was ready to give up I held the ring up and brought a smile to her face. Another successful recovery,another happy customer!
