    Family Heirloom BEST FIND EVER !!!

    I had posted an ad in the Lost and Found section of Craigsxxxx several weeks ago, offering my services to find lost items. Two weeks ago I was contacted by a lady in Austin, TX to see if I could help find her husbands ring. After working out schedules, we finally met up today. The couple explained that the ring was lost on Thanksgiving Day, while the husband was playing football in the backyard with the kids. they had tried looking for the ring after it flew off his finger, but no luck. They had even rented a metal detector, but were unable to locate the ring " Cause the darn thing beeped every 5 seconds" according to the wife. The ring hand belonged to the mans father who had it made many years ago, and he had past it down to his son prior to his passing. I figured the ring should be very close to the surface, maybe up to an inch down, since we have not had much rain lately. We had a general area, so away I went. I cannot believe how many signals I was getting!!! The yard was littered with nails, soda tops, etc... After about 30 minutes I received a signal that sounded a bit different, it was two solid signals about 1/4 inch apart, I thought it might be the ring band. After pinpointing, I used my Lesche to scrap away the grass and dirt, and there she was !!!!!
    The family were beside themselves with joy. They are renting the house where the ring was lost, and were actually considering buying the house, knowing the ring was in the yard. It's days like this that make it worth the 250 mile roundtrip. The ring was appraised last year for $2000-$3000.

    Oh wow, how cool!

    It sounds like it was worth a lot more to the family if they were considering buying the house!

    If it put a smile on my face, I bet you're still grinning!

    very neat!
