White's,

Recently at a church coffee shop, an acquaintance overheard me talking about my new hobby, metal detecting. She approached me, and began telling me about her daughter and a friend playing "catch" with a diamond ring in her front yard some 35 years ago. The ring had been a gift from the friends' grandmother. Needless to say, they lost the ring in the grass. Jokingly, she wondered if I would want to attempt to find it. She mentioned that since that time, a tree had been removed in the area, and other changes had occurred. Being new to this hobby, I was more than willing to help with the understanding that other items I found would be mine.

I arrived at her house and after detecting about 2 hours, my friend said I could quit at any time, but I was having too much fun. I had found 3 silver dimes, 1 buffalo nickel, and one wheat penny. I continued detecting and received a weak signal which I passed by. I then decided to go back over the same area, and to my surprise, uncovered the diamond ring below the grass roots approximately 3 inches deep.

Many rings have been recovered, using White's Metal Detectors, but I think this find after 35 years in pretty special, and brought much joy to my friend.

My purchase of the White's MXT in March, 2008, has given me a lot of enjoyment and its performance cannot be surpassed.
