    Wedding band recovered, with a little bonus.

    Fellow called me Friday wanting to rent a detector. He lost his wedding ring. When he told me that where he though it was a house had burned down, and new construction was underway.

    I figured with the junk that would be there, and him no experience, I just said come pick me up on Sunday I'll find it for you, and it won't cost you a cent, and not to worry, if it is there I will find it.

    We get there the side of the house he thinks it is on is covered in 2-3 inches of water, not the nicest stuff to be playing in Nov 6th in cold country. It was certainly less than 10 minutes when I yelled to him "job's done". Not before I fished a this rather cool button (IMO) out of the slop.
    "1907 GREAT SEAL OF THE STATE OF OKLAHOMA"

    By what he said, "can't believe you found it" Guess he didn't have much faith, even though I assured him I would find it. He went on about how a lot of people are out there to take advantage of others, he also couldn't believe I offered to find it for free. Anyway he was VERY happy, and very appreciative.

    I got more than the button out of the deal, also got a lead on what may be a good site.

    I just did a quick check on this button, thay have turned up on forums before, but the 3 I think I saw all had a mispelling of Oklahoma, for the record this one has the correct spelling, and is / was gold plated ??
