    Folks, Started off the year on the right note.....

    Folks,

    First off Happy New Year to all members.

    Last evening after supper the doorbell rang and it was one of my neighbors who told me his brother had lost his custom made gold ring at their parents house after dinner in the snow.

    So headed off mid morning and after about 30 minutes without success searching in the snow in the driveway managed to find it along the shrubs by the side of the driveway....the ring weighs in at 20 grams of white gold with a star shaped face encrusted with diamonds...a 5 figure ring and you can see the owner was a happy camper.

    Regards + HH

    kcm,

    If memory serves me correctly the ring cost $28M to have it custom made.....quite the chunk of white gold and a whack of diamonds for the faceplate.

    LD,

    It was a bit of a coincidence because his brother had seen me heading off on foot over the years and we finally spoke this summer when I was walking back from a hunt....he managed to track me down through the internet and a neighbor who's a mutual friend.

    It's a good feeling to return a find to it's rightful owner.

    Regards + HH

    Good man Uncle!
    Guess having a crazy guy with a metal detector in the community is not so bad....

    Folks knew who to look up. Excellent.

    kingskid,

    It's going to be a tough find to beat for 2017 unless I find a buried hoard of Spanish Treasure....

    Wew boy that's a nice ring. That would've suuuuucked to have it lost buried by the driveway. What detector did you use sir? That much gold must've rang up super strong.
