West Yarmouth, Cape Cod, MA Lost Wedding Band Found and Returned
September 5, 2021
The last of the beach cleanups were in progress and all went well. The docks were in, the boats as well. It was now time for a relaxing cool off in the lake. As it usually happened when one has weight changes their ring does not resize to echo the body’s change. Then it happens, the ring slips off and disappears underwater and down into the sand, not to be seen without help.
The three, Jim, Joe, and Jeff all knew they would need help in finding Jim’s wedding band. Several calls to friends for a detector that would not self-destruct when used underwater did not produce such a detector. A call to the local Metal Detector Dealer (Eleanor at J&E Enterprise) gave the threesome a lead. They should make a local call to Rick Browne – one of TheRingFinders and Jeff did. I answered the call and set a noon meeting time for the next day as it was almost dark. All was set yet, the night would have some anxious moments.
Leighton and I showed up a bit early as our earlier Ring Return only took a few minutes to complete.
A quick overview of the area were the loss occurred and we were into the water to search for the ring. A few coin and a bullet gave us hope. After about a minute and a half I had a very good sounding signal and yes a very large circular piece of gold was in the bottom of my scoop. I walked it in and let Jim remove his ring, untouched since it has slipped from his finger. Ring Return number two for the morning had been accomplished.
Many thanks, pictures, stories and a lot of history of the local private pond and resort area. The thrill, history, meeting new and now friends and helping others is the most wonderful part of our hobby. Leighton and I work well together, having the same ethics and desires to reunite a lost object with the owner. September 5th was another of those rewarding days we enjoy so much.
