I received a text over the weekend saying they needed my services to find a silver engagement ring in the back yard. I was not available at that time so I met up with Blake late Monday afternoon. He said him and his fiancé were chipping sticks when a stick caught the ring and pulled it off. The grass was pretty long in the back yard because he did not want to mow until he found the ring. I started the grid search and after about an hour he came and we discussed it more. The yard was not very big so I went one way and then changed directions and could not believe I could not find it. He asked if the other half of the ring would be of use. Well, Duh, I should of asked for that in the beginning….Lesson learned number one. He went and got the ring and we put it on the ground and I did a test pass. It was ringing up as a 41-43 on my AT Max….Lesson learned number 2….I assumed since he told me it was silver it would ring in the 70-90 range. I had the AT Max discrimination set pretty high. I reset the detector and started all over with the grid. Within about 15 minutes Blake came back to check on me and while he was standing there I got a hit in the 40’s. Like so many other times I figured it was nothing and started digging in the grass and there it was. Needless to say everyone left happy.  Sorry about the crappy photo.

Lost Wedding Ring in Iowa snow – Found

I bought a metal detector a few years back and my son and I would use it to find coins and other objects.  Well, a couple years ago, one of my fellow Firefighters texted me about 2 months after his wedding and asked if I had a metal detector. My response was, yes, where did you lose your wedding ring. His response was “How did you know! In my yard” Well it was the middle of winter with temps around 0 and 2 feet of snow on the ground, I was pretty sure he wasn’t going to be digging any treasures. Seems his ring was a little loose on his finger and he was outside and he went to throw something away from his house and his ring went with it. I went to his house and by this time it was almost dark and he was in a panic and was scared to tell his wife. I started by asking what he was doing and kind of reenacted what he did and started the search. Within 5 minutes we both heard the distinctive tone from the detector and he looked down and picked up his ring with my pin-pointer. He was relieved that he could go back into the house.

Since then I have wondered about a metal detecting service but never really pursued it until I found Ring Finders and just signed up. Give me a call and let me try and help you find your lost items.

Sorry, I never took a photo of it but the next time I find one for someone, I will sure to take a photo.
