NOX 600 Finds Gold Wedding Ring & Returns To Owner

While detecting at a park with my week old Equinox 600, a man mentioned that two years prior, he had lost his gold wedding band on the soccer field. I told him it was a new detector and while I had found silver the three times I used it, I didn't know what numbers gold would read. I took his number and promised that if I found it (and the inscription was correct), I would be happy to give him a call.

This afternoon on the Equinox forum, I asked what numbers gold read. Most replies were that it all depends on weight, purity, depth, etc. and could ring up anywhere from 1 through 30. Well on responder, Grumpyolddiver, said his two gold bands came in at a solid 18. I decided to first go with that so...

I got to the soccer field that Jose said he remembered losing his ring and began searching. I ignored all deep targets and focused on "18". The first solid 18 I got read two inches, so I dug.... BAM! In the roots of the plug was his ring! I called him up to tell him the good news. He couldn't believe it, but I told him a promise was a promise! I wanted no reward (for I already had it just by finding it for this stranger)!

Thanks again to Grumpyolddiver and.... DIG THOSE 18's! :cheers:

Maybe the Old Guy just took a guess at what you might find next....and it paid off for him.

Thank you for representing our hobby in a positive manner and I wish you a bucket of silver for your kindness.



Fear is paralyzing and courage is liberating. No matter what is put in front of you, there is always a way to make it work.

Dreams are just dreams, goals are dreams with deadlines. The desire to succeed comes from within. Stay focused on your goals, and if people say that you can’t do something, get them out of your life and move on.
