I have officially broken 100 Lost Ring Recoveries today!!!

Recovery #101 was an extremely sentimental school ring that belonged to the customer. It was his class ring who had passed away and it had also served as his present wedding ring! He was very upset when he lost it off the side of the dock at the marina. 10 minutes after I entered the water with my White’s MX Sport metal detector I got the signal I was looking for and the ring was in my scoop! The very happy family cheered from the dock as I handed back to an incredibly relieved man who was now just about in tears of joy. What a great feeling it was to do this recovery! #101 is in the scoop!

I received an email from Jon asking for my help recovering his lost wedding ring. He explained that he had lost it on a beach on the 4th of July nearly 2 weeks ago when he folded up his beach chair. He had taken the ring off to go swimming and put the ring in the chairs cup holder but forgot when they were leaving and folded the chair up and losing his ring in the sand. After speaking with him on the phone he stated that this was a bay beach and not a lot of traffic or ocean waves were there so maybe it would be there? I agreed it was definitely worth a shot and met his wife at the beach a few days later. Once I arrived at the beach I definitely was optimistic as there were only a few people on this tucked away little piece of paradise beach. As his wife and kids set up their beach blanket I staked out they area with some flags and began my search for his white gold wedding band. The kids enjoyed tagging along for the search and were having fun digging targets and even trying the metal detector. After searching for about 20 minutes I received a good solid gold signal at about 5 inches deep. I scooped up the sand and shook the scoop revealing the nice heaving gold wedding inside! Everyone was so excited and were amazed at it recovery. The 7 year old son stated “I am so happy for my Dad” Awe! An absolutely great family and recovery!   #98 Lost ring recovery!!!

Lost Wedding Ring in Ship Bottom,NJ Recovered by Ed Cropski

I received a call from Frank who explained that while jumping off a dock while on vacation he had lost his wedding ring 2 weeks ago. He stated that the location was on the bay and during low tide the water was only a few feet deep and the bottom was firm sand. Although he had attempted to search for it in the area he was unsuccessful. We agreed to meet at the location the following weekend with the outgoing tide and as I entered the water I felt confident with the search as the conditions were as he had described and the area was small. After about 40 minutes of digging stainless steel screws from the recently constructed dock and a few trash items I was starting my 2nd grid search of the area and received a nice solid gold signal from my White’s metal detector. Sliding my long handle sand scoop into the sand I was happy to seeing his gold ring laying in the bottom as the water washed the sand away. Overlooking from the dock above a sudden look of happiness and relief came to his face as I said “Bingo!”and handed him the ring. He was very thankful and called his wife right away with the great news! Another great day! Recovery #94

10 year Anniversary Diamond Ring Lost in bay off Restaurant Pier in Margate,NJ Recovered!

Enjoying a beautiful sunset Christine was sitting on her stool on the deck at Lamberti’s restaurant above the boat docks. Moving her ring around on her finger it fell off on the deck and over the side it went into the bay. At that point the fun time with friends changed to a panic and a  frantic search of the water by her and the staff. Having no success someone mentioned she should call a ring finder which led her to me with a quick google search! I met Christine at the site 2 days later after the sun had gone down and after looking at the area I assured her I could do the job.However due to the amount of mud/silt I didn’t want to get in the water and possibly disturb the silt and have the ring sink further so I chose to work from the dock. The following day I arrived before low tide and prepared my gear and as I went to move a piece of steel that was in the way on the dock I noticed a penny heads up looking right at me exactly where I had to stand to swing my detector,hmm? After a few minutes of searching with my Whites V3i detector and 4×6 coil I got a nice solid 12 vdi signal that I was looking for and then it was in the scoop!!! As I shook the scoop to wash the mud out I could see her ring laying in the bottom. Bingo! I immediately sent her a text picture of it in the scoop and asked if this looked familiar? I could feel the relief and excitement in her response with the following phone call! I mentioned the penny and the date of 1981 and she responded that her grandfather who had metal detected passed away in 1981 had answered her prayers in finding the ring,God Bless! We made arrangements and I had the pleasure of handing her ring back to her and seeing that priceless expression on her face. Another great recovery! Another great day!14102622_10207295414814230_234496454223512118_n14212842_10207295441894907_193318073498321949_n14034877_10207243230709660_6600856504966864319_n14100394_10207295442054911_24785779127929672_n

Platinum Wedding Band Lost off Boat Dock in Ocean City,NJ Recovered!

While I was on vacation in Ocean City this summer I received a call from a guy that lived just blocks away from where I was staying. He stated that he was tying up his boat and his ring had fallen off and into the water. I met him the next morning for the 6am low tide and he showed me the area he was sure it was in. Unfortunately the mud silt was so unstable and deep I was unable to get in the water at the area in fear of sinking in the mud and pushing the ring further into the mud. I started searching the area with my White’s v3i with a small 4×6 search coil from the side of the dock and within seconds I got a nice gold signal from the detector. Lightly fanning the water a shinny circle reveal itself just under the surface of the mud and I gently recovered it with my hand scoop.  Another happy customer!13782112_10207019575358416_7875700893610358643_n13659102_10207019575198412_8993728255586263972_n13607050_10207019575438418_3086520614212338827_n

I received a call from Tim asking if I could find his wedding ring in the bay off the end of a boat dock? He explained that he was playing with his son throwing him into the water when his ring slipped off sometime during. He stated that at low tide the water was between 4-5 ft deep and the bottom was a firm sand base. Arriving at the dock we went over the events and chose the area at the end of the dock and I entered the chest deep water with my White’s Beach Hunter id metal detector,scoop and floating sifter. After digging just a few trash items I received a nice signal and scooped up the sand dumping it into the sifter and started washing the sand/mud out and suddenly  the bright gold ring appeared in the sifter! Everyone was watching from the dock above and seen it too and screamed with amazement He got it!!!! Another great recovery!IMG_0007IMG_2906IMG_2911
