First lost ring find
Quote this message in a reply
Got a call yesterday from my friends house that's right down the road asking me if I still had a metal detector. I said yes and was told my friends dads lost his wedding ring in a big pile of wood shavings they have (they own their own wood cutting machine) and that they had tried searching all day for it with no luck. So I got there today with my Compadre (the E-trac stayed home) to help out and they were showing me the general area they thought it was lost and I went searching. About 15-20 minutes in I was having no luck, so I decided to move away from where they thought it was and moved some of the pile that was right next to the machine away from it and 'lo and behold I get a great signal...sift through the shavings and there it was....The dad had to leave prior to me finding it, so I chilled at their house until he got home and as soon as he walked in the door I placed it in his hand. Now I know what it's like to return a ring to somebody. He was ecstatic and thanked me about 10 times because he thought it was never going to be found. There's definitely no greater feeling than being able to do something like that for someone and I'm glad I was able to help. I didnt take any pics or anything, but figured I'd share

I haven't had the pleasure/privilege of returning a ring to its owner yet. That's one of the best aspects of our hobby. Job well done Yes Now the karma gods will be tipping their caps to you Wink

Good job Dangit!! People often think we are a bunch of misguided fortune hunters who'll stop at nothing to make a find. Stories like yours remind us of the integrity and honesty we hold ourselves to and which really make our hobby a wholesome one. Congrats again!!!

Dang it Bobby.  Great story.  Congratulations on your noble ring return.  How many pulltabs did you find?

Thanks again guys. I was always hoping to be able to do this for someone and hopefully more people will know that it's a respectable hobby...and I didn't dig any pull tabs, just some pieces of foil. It was just a giant wood shavings pile
