I wanted to relay a story to you about recovery of a lost wedding ring. This weekend, a friend of mine posted on facebook asking people to keep an eye out for her lost wedding ring. She fell down in the snow outside a local school and did not realize she had lost her ring until a couple hours later. The following day, we had another inch plus of snow and the plow truck had come through where she lost the ring. She was certain it was lost for good. My sons and I went out Tuesday after I got off work and, using a White's DFX, located her ring under 1/4 inch of ice and packed snow and were able to recover it with a snow shovel. She had tears in her eyes when we delivered it to her door. There was never any doubt when I went over the item with the detector that it was anything but her expensive wedding ring. There was no way anyone without a detector would have found it as it was buried and we had to use a shovel to chip away at the ice and recover it. It was also many feet away from where she thought she had lost it. Many thanks to Whites for making such an awesome machine that anyone can pick up and, within a few seconds, start detecting. It is such a user friendly machine and easy to learn. I also posted this story on a metal detecting site.
