We had a permission to metal detect a farm well north of the battlefield. I found this WWII aviator's ring in the area of the farmhouse, working through the trash.
This is what I realized after 40 minutes of hands/knees searching. The pieces was dirt covered so it blended in.Good lesson for us all to maybe leave the ring alone until you get home. I know I’d have done what you did but maybe shouldn’t 🤷🏻♂️
