Recommended Posts


Congratulations!!! Is the band broken?? That would also make it a lot harder to find especially with older technology.

Some more pics and pics of more junk I took out recently. I want to also say that the Tesoro silver would never have found this ring. It just couldn’t punch down deep enough, if I set it On “iron it will only hit this ring down to about 4-5 inches as you can see from the pinpointed in the hole it was probably 9-10 inches deep. Happy to answer any questions. The football pic is of me in 1976, if you look close at my hand on the middle finger is the ring.

So glad you found it. Any of those coins of interest? Lost one of my rings a few days ago and found it in about 5 minutes with the Equinox. Perseverance pays off. 👍

Great job, Hibernia1776.  You did it!

 It just goes to show how hard it can be for a detectorist to find an object on a site that we know is there, let alone when we’re trying to find something without prior knowledge of it. 

The iron and other junk can mask the signal if interest, making it very difficult to determine whether to dig or not.

Plus, the detector technology has improved over the years making it possible to detect in junk laden areas, and still find objects of interest.  You witnessed that effect first hand.  

Congrats!  I hope you will enjoy detecting other places now that you know detecting can be rewarding in lots of ways.  It’s a great hobby,

No 350platinum they are just pennies and a dime or two, the one at the top is a token from showbiz pizza place, chuckie cheese bought them out and turned them into chuckie cheeses years ago, they were the original pizza place. I remember going there and playing arcade games around 82-83 so that find kind of gave me a little hope because the ring was lost around that time, I figured if I could find that token that I could find the ring.

That's awesome! I'm so happy for you. What a great story, would you mind if I submit that to my metal detecting club for their newsletter with a few pictures? I think everyone could use an uplifting story of perseverence paying off. 🙂

I don’t mind at all, go ahead and use....a man who walks his dog and had seen me out there digging many times works for the local newspaper and said he was going to see about printing the story and would I go on local news. I told them Inprobabaly would t want to be on the news but paper I don’t mind.
