    Lost Heirloom Cross Pendant Found and Returned

    A friend of mine called and asked if I could bring a detector and look for his step-sons necklace pendant that he lost over the summer. He had been at a friends house playing football and the chain broke. They found the chain but never found the pendant. I think he got in a little hot water because he didn't tell his mom for several weeks he had lost the pendant. The necklace was a cross his late grandmother had given to him. The mom was equally upset as well. I didn't know, until I was tagged in a Facebook post, that the grandmother had given it to him at his baptism.

    We met at the friends house and the kids pointed to about a 10' area in the backyard where the chain had been found. They thought the cross was silver but wasn't sure. The house was newly built so I figured there wouldn't be much in the yard. Silver pendant, new house, 10' radius?...I figured I would be out of there in 5 minutes...an hour and a half later I'm still digging change, pulltabs, can slaw and bottle caps...apparently they throw lots of pool parties. I think I passed over it once or twice. It ended up having a pot metal soccer ball pendant attached to it which was giving me a broken trash signal. Luckily I was desperate enough at that point I was going back and digging the trash signals and finally found it.

    I think this is a good way to start 2017. Happy hunting all!

    It pay's to dig even the trashy signals sometimes. Great find.
