Gentleman and his family came to Glen Ellyn Lake Park to watch the cardboard post races on July 3rd.. While watching they moved to another location. The ring was in the cup holder of a chair. They were uncertain as to which location it came out or if it came out while going to the location.
I hunted the first location and thats where I found it. It came in at 11/22 on the CTX 3030. About a twenty minute hunt. Even the Park manager was surprised I found it. Needless to say I gave the manager my card for future loses.
While assembling a kite with his children, he lost his Platinum wedding band. He knew the area and had searched with a metal detector, and even went at night with a flashlight to search. I used my Minelab 3030 with a large coil. Found ring which had been stepped on and driven into ground in less than 20 minutes.
Received call to go to a volleyball court to locate a mens wedding band. Married for only 3 weeks. While playing his ring came off. Used my XP Deus and located ring in about 1 minute.
In Chicago I was contacted to search for a ring that was lost when she was throwing stones at amorous opossums in the back yard. It was a collapsible 18K ring with diamonds. Less than 30 minutes and I found it. I was using my XP Deus and was surprised to see that it rang up at 78 using 18 kHz. It seems that 18K can come in very high.
Last week I received a call from a young women who believed she lost a mourning ring while walking to work. Yes a Mourning Ring, not morning ring. I must admit I had never heard of one. For those of you who have never heard of a Mourning Ring let me explain.
This Mourning ring was made in the 1890’s in England. It was made from 15K gold, not 14K gold, and was custom made with a lock of hair encased in the setting. The current owner is attempting to research for whom the ring was made and who is the deceased person that that person was in mourning for. It has small pearls boarding a stone under which is held a locket of hair. It also has a number of hallmarks on the inside of the ring. It has the initials of the deceased. If I find out more, I will update this post.
After searching the walkways for about 1/2 mile with detector and rake, we discovered the ring on the sidewalk. Since the area sidewalks had been searched several times, it is my opinion that while raking productive sounding targets, I flipped the ring out onto the center of the sidewalk. We discovered it while walking back to the original starting place. Needless to say, the owner who had purchased the ring recently, was delighted to be reunited with it.
The ring has a number of Hallmark markings.
I was contacted by a student who had lost his ring in the snow at his college parking lot. He lost it when he threw a snowball. He lost it almost a week ago. I told him I would come out immediately, since we were expecting a heavy snow in a few hours. I knew that if we didn’t find it now, we might not find it til spring. The ring was found in a bank of snow that the snow plow had pushed to the side. Very lucky that he found it.
Got a call about a lost iPhone. While on a golf course pulling a child on a sled, iPhone dropped in the snow. Owner searched and even rented a metal detector, to no avail. Hence the call.. Within an hour with my ctx 3030 and a rake, I found it. As a note to others, the iPhone models each ring up differently on the 3030. iPhone 5 is up around 01/44 and the iPhone 4 hits about 01/28.
She was surprised that I found it?
Received a call from a woman who had lost her deceased husbands ring while she was cleaning the gutters on the roof. This ring was the last memonto she had of him and was very upset. After about 2 hours we found it.
