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 friend that I metal detect with regularly asking for some help recovering a woman’s wedding ring. A US Air Force friend of his and his wife were at a local park taking photos in the fall leaves with their baby and whiles tossing some leaves into the air her wedding ring flew off! Although they knew the ring was within a general area it was impossible to locate by eye among the leaves and grass. The following day (Veterans Day) we arrived at the park with our White’s V3i metal detectors and marked out an area where we believed the ring would be laying. After just a few minutes of searching I received a nice solid signal and as I brushed the leaves away I could see the ring laying on the ground! I casually said to Frank “That was easy enough” and he responded you got it already? Yep! He was excited to call his buddy with the great news and I was happy to have been able to help these respected military veterans out. Another great day and recovery. Recovery#106
On my way home from work I received a call from a young woman asking for my help to recover her husbands gold wedding sand that was lost on the beach. She stated that they were recently married and his ring was a little loose so he took it off and put it in the cup holder of his beach chair so he could go swimming. Unfortunately he forgot it was in there and at the end of the day folded the chair up and they walked off the beach not realizing until later what had happened. They returned to the beach and marked off an area approximately 40×40 and started searching with their hands with no luck. I arrived about an hour later and began to search the area and within minutes and the ring was recovered and back on his finger. Another very happy couple!
