    Platinum and Gold ring found and returned

    A man named Thomas contacted our detecting club's past president and founder asking for some assistance in finding his lost wedding ring. I responded with an Email to him and soon we had a date to meet so he could show me the area where he had lost it the previous summer. As we all know, things change as far as landmarks go, but he felt confident that the area we were to search was the correct place. I gridded the area that he indicated for about 4 hours finding 2 other .925 rings, some pocket change, some bottle cap twist-offs and the usual other stuff. But no ring that belonged to him. We just figured that after almost a year, someone else had already recovered it so we called it a day and went our separate ways. For whatever reason, I decided to go back to that area the following day and expand the search area in the opposite direction mainly to satisfy my own feelings that I had done the best for him that I could. I had made about 3-4 passes in a grid pattern on the opposite side of the tree where we were the day before and got the tone from my Explorer SE that I was waiting to hear.....pinpointed the target and dug down about 2 inches and there was the Platinum ring with the Gold inset. I called him when I got home, asked him to describe it in detail.....the description matched, so I asked him when he would like to have his ring back. TOTAL SILENCE for a minute....he then said...."you are serious...you really found it"!! The rest is in the pictures and yes, it felt good to return something precious to him.
    Thanks for looking and HH to all. Gold Nuggets

    It's amazing just how much treasure people loose and we manage to find.

    Good job on returning the ring The feeling of filling someones heart with happiness is memorable. I've done it a few times, and to date I still tell those stories of the look they have on their faces when I give back their ring. It's like I completed them again. Congratulations on the silver rings as a reward for work well done.

    Good Job ! And not only do you make your self look good in service , you make the rest of us look good also. And this man will tell people every time something comes up about his ring and how it was found . And things like this will make it easier for Detectors like us not look so bad to the towns parks and yards that we hunt in.
    Few things I love to do is , Metal Detecting for anything of the past!
    Making Detectors better ! Tuning and finding ways to upgrade Detector hardware , To make them work the Best that is possable !

    You Sir are a good man. Not too many folks would take the time to help a stranger these days unfortunately. And your added persistence says something about your character as well.
    Kudos to you!!!
