    Nice find and mighty good Karma. It's always a joy to return found property to its rightful owner.

    I've found that karma is pretty much an automatic. I suspect that you found the phone first and at that moment you decided to find the owner. You hadn't even got off the field before you reaped a reward. HE *knows*!

    I vote "Honourable Mention"!

    Good job!

    Yesterday, I worked an old park in town. Now this park has been detected since the 1970ís so good finds are not the norm and silver is a rarity. I decided to work an area that had a thin path in the woods that at one time probably was wider. I detected about 10 feet on either side of the path with Minelab Explorer SE Pro using a small Sun Ray X-5 coil do to the overgrown brush. Many holes yielded the usual junk (can pieces, pop tops and foil), but a few nice coins did find my coil during the hunt: Funny, I have found very few silver Washington Quarters in my years of detecting, so that find (1951) was a pleasant surprise.

    The best find of the day was brand new Samsung Smartphone; still charged and unlocked in the grass near where my car was parked. So I sent a message to the last person that texted and asked if they could call the owner of the phone and we could meet for a return. Within two minutes a middle aged woman called (to her phone) and was very excited about the phone recovery. I told her we could meet at a local convenient store in town. We met and she was so happy to get her new phone back. She did offer me $ 50 dollars, but I declined the kind offer.

    Thank you for looking.
