    Found Southern Bell Gold Ring

    Found a retirement Southern bell gold ring today.


    Hunted an area that is very trashy and heavy iron. My buddy Arthur was testing out his 8Ē coil on the minelab Etrac. We found a few clad coins and a ton of square nails, plows, modern bullets and trash.


    My dear friend Arthurís father retired in 1983 age 55. Lost his retirement ring 30 years ago. His father worked for Southern Bell. They found the diamond placement 5 years ago.


    Each diamond represents 5 years of service, 7 diamonds total, 35 years of service.


    I tell my buddy Arthur, letís move to the south where we found the civil War Connecticut state seal button, so the Gardener can cut the grass.


    Arthur says wait! points and says my dadís ring was lost right in this area!

    I set my AT Pro discrimination at 37 sensitivity one notch down from Max and do a quick ground balance.


    I walk 10 steps, make two swings get a screaming 72 with the six inch coil at 2Ē down, I dig the target and Bam!!! thereís the ring!


    My heart jumped out of my chest! Wow! Thereís your daddies ring. What an exciting and emotional hunt we had today!

    I'm confused. Was the center of the ring lost, or the whole ring? Gary

    Hi Gary,

    The entire ring was lost 30 years ago.

    The family found the center of the ring five years ago. We found the ring yesterday.

    What an awesome day we had.

    very cool story and an awesome recovery. What was once lost was found and returned to the family, the bonus is the family happens to be your friends as well. A memory for all involved, a highlight for you.
