Dear White's,

A recent warm spell on the weekend allowed me to take my 10 year old daughter out for her 1st official detecting trip with me. She had gotten her Coinmaster a couple Christmas' ago but had only used it in our yard. I took her to a friend's house to help me hunt for his mother’s wedding band that she had lost there a couple of years before.

I had been in the yard 1 other time a few weeks prior and found a few Wheaties, a couple mercury’s and a silver Washington Quarter, so I knew this would be a good place for her to find something good. After working with her for an hour or so I started detecting in my own direction with my XLT while she went the other.

I would occasionally call her over to check a signal I got against what her machine could do so I could get a better familiarization with its capabilities. Well, she calls me over this time with a big grin on her face to show me what’s in her hole! Turned out to be a size 11 men’s 14kt gold wedding band inscribed with “Always” that the homeowner's mother wore on her thumb and had lost doing yard work. The mercury is all I found that day. She was rewarded by the homeowner with an 1893 World’s Fair Columbian Half and a 2010 1 troy oz. silver dollar. I have a new hunting buddy!
