Thread: Gold Wedding Band Returned To Farmer After 15 Years!

    Gold Wedding Band Returned To Farmer After 15 Years!

    Today we continued the grind field & managed to cover 5 acres in 5 hours! Lots of junk clearing.
    Only real good find was a Gold Wedding Band & to our surprise (although the thought crossed our mind, it being a modern ring) the farmer stated he had lost it 15 years ago whilst fixing a tractor, the misses went mental...
    We said we would take it home, clean it, photo it & return to him on Monday.

    Looks like the ring got "plowed" or something. Thanks for photographing it, and letting the farmer have it back (on Monday). Honorable Mention seems to be in order...

    Great job Cru. Must have been a great feeling. I returned a ring once and found a tree coin a few weeks later. Hope you're rewarded with the same kind of karma

    23 Banner and finally a honorable mention. I thought you get one some years ago whith the bomber throttle controls, now you will make it. A wedding band is one of the few chances for us field hunter. Well done!

    MY BOOK HAS JUST SOLD OUT OF ALL 1200 COPIES IN LESS THAN 4 MONTHS. NO 2ND PRINTING IS ANTICIPATED AT THIS TIME. THANKS TO ALL WHO MADE THIS PROJECT A SUCCESS.

    Just wanted to let everyone know that my new book is doing great and is well on its way to being sold out with almost 1000 copies selling in only 3 months, and it's unlikely the remaining inventory will last more than a few weeks. There will definitely not be a 2nd printing,
    so if you have any interest in obtaining a signed copy I would strongly recommend not delaying. For a detailed description of its contents plus some sample page views you can click on the link below. Many thanks to all those who purchased a copy and helped make this project a success.

    You can also check out the following 15 min video book review posted by Beau Ouimette (Aquachigger) which will provide a much more detailed look at the book:

    With 23 banner finds I guess you could call that a day of junk cleaning. Lol
    Congrats on the gold ring and return!! Maybe your next hunt you'll see how karma works.
