    First GOLD with the NOX and a return...

    Howdy all.
    One of my wife's friends gave me permission to search her 1920s yard a few weeks ago. I found a few silver and wheats, nothing spectacular. BUT: she mentioned that when she was 8 or 9 years old she had been playing with her grandmother's wedding band in the yard where she grew up and lost it. Well, today she got us permission to go search for it. It's really easy when you know where to look within a 10ft radius circle!

    Rang up as a solid 13. Before I dug it, I said "it's either gold or a nickel." She was stoked. Glad to have gotten a piece of family history back to the people it belongs with.

    Thanks for sharing my excitement!

    A good deed can be a wonderful thing. I am sure from the picture that she was thrilled to see that ring after it’s nap in the dirt. Without you the ring may never have been found. Congratulations and I vote honorable mention for your good deed. Stay safe and keep swingin.

    Wow that is a very nice “long lost return”

    I recently went hunting for a wedding band that has been lost for 20 years. It was very hard going, and I did not recover the band. So congratulations
