I was contacted by “Lost my Stuff” that someone in Ipswich, Massachusetts was looking for help finding a ring that he lost about a year ago. He had previously searched for it but had no luck. My detecting buddy Jeff & I responded to the request and met up with Jeremy at the house where he lost the ring.
The area where he lost it was very difficult terrain for metal detecting, mostly shrubs. He described how he was walking up the stairs and pulled his keys out of his pocket and was sure the ring flew out of his pocket at that time.
We discussed briefly how we should proceed and then I turned on my detector, placed it near one of the shrubs, got a signal similar to a gold signal, poked my Vibra Probe pinpointer in the dirt, and saw a glitter of gold!
I reached in with my finger, stood up and said “we’re done here” and everyone was shocked! It has to be a Lost My Stuff record because it took less than a minute from turning on my detector to finding the ring!!!
Needless to say Jeremy was thrilled and probably in shock! Another happy result thanks to Lost my Stuff, and oh yeah, my great metal detecting skills 🙂
