Cherished ring returned

Metal detector finds - ring

One of the best moments for a metal detectorist is when he is able to return a lost wedding band to the owner. A week ago a young family ambushed me as I was coming off Skaket Beach on Cape Cod, MA. My Excalibur II was on my shoulder after having done its work. I had just found a nice large sterling necklace and was calling it quits for the night. The wife explained that she had lost her wedding band there the evening before.

I received a panicked call from a good friend of mine. She said that she lost 3 rings while sun bathing in the yard. Her father found one of them while he was mowing the lawn so we had a good idea where the other two might be.

I recently travelled to Chicago with my hunting buddy to do some water hunting at the beaches there. Within one hour of hitting the water the first day I pulled this heavy 14k gold initial ring(12.1 grams).

On our second day hunting, I pulled the small antique 10k gold ring.

Metal detector finds - diamond tennis bracelet

This is my first time using the CTX 3030 at the beach and it did not let me down. After digging about 30 coins and a few pieces of cheap jewelry, I decided to go play in the surf. It was a bit rough and I was getting beat around by the waves and ready to go back to digging the beach but I got that low tone that makes everyone see gold.

Metal detector finds - diamond ring

Video Success Story

Team Jackwick got a call about a ring that was lost 2 years ago in the front yard this gentleman's wife had lost while picking up sticks from a storm. I was told they was to renew their vows at the end of this month.

We drove 110miles south to take on this challenge armed with our CTX 3030s. After 20 minutes I had found the ring and really couldn't show it because the wife was watching out the window. I called my wife over and showed her and with a kiss and a big smile, we kept on detecting.

After calling the school, they were able to give me the name of the ring owner. It was Karl Englung, and I tracked him down to Oklahoma were he moved years ago and called but no answer, so i left him a message.

Discovering a find's hidden secrets

Metal detector finds - pocket watch

Video Success Story

Shortly after obtaining permission to detect on a piece of private property, I received a killer signal on my CTX 3030. To my surprise I unearthed a nice silver Washington quarter, but the real surprise was hiding right next to the quarter.

As a rule of thumb I always make sure to re-scan my hole in hopes of finding another item. In this case the find of my life was hiding out right next door to that silver quarter. As I scanned the ground I received the exact same signal at the exact same depth as the silver quarter. Fully expecting to retrieve another silver quarter I decided to capture this dig on film. What I unearthed next took my breath away.

Walking the line

Metal detector finds - US Marine ring

While detecting at a local hot spot in So Cal., I was walking the line during low tide. In other words the area where most items settle in the sand.

After about 3 hours of swinging and 3 earrings later I heard that low grunt that stopped me in my tracks. I pinpointed and buried my scoop. After making sure it was in my scoop I kicked the scoop of sand and there it was, big and round. At first glance it looked like a class ring. It had some weight to it. On closer inspection it turn out to be a ring from a US marine.
