    Who Knew That Teaching Could Produce GOLD?!

    A friend of mine has an MXT and has never gone beyond the
    factory recommended setting in Coin Mode. Joe and I have tried,
    But he just wouldn't budge.
    The other day he told me he hadn't detected for quite awhile. I
    told him that I could make it interesting for him if he would let
    me show him how to adjust his machine a little differently. He
    agreed.
    I had to put an "Emergency" phone call in to the local MXT Wizard,
    ya'll know him as Civilman. Civilman told me how to set the machine
    up the way he does, and then had to tell me how to ground
    balance it. I had only used an MXT once, for about five minutes.
    My friend and I met, I set up the machine, And we started hunting
    his back yard.
    While explaining what was going on and what to listen for, I swung
    and my friend dug. After a few pennies, a toothpaste tube, and 4
    pulltabs I got a signal in the pulltab range that was not bouncing.
    Much to our delight, a 1968 class ring come out of the hole.
    I wish you all could have seen the look on his face as he yelled,
    "It's GOLD! I found my first gold ring!"
    After all, it was his yard, his detector, and his lesson.
    We have called the school and are working with them to find the
    owner of the ring. My friend insists on returning it as soon as
    possible.
    I have found a few goldrings, but none were that enjoyable!!!

    Man that is a pretty ring! It doesn't look like the owner "owned" it for very long... Hope they get it returned and what a cool first find!
