Default Found ring after 5 years

When on my 10 day vacation saw a few people I had gone to school with. Well one of them had lost her rose gold engagement ring. So I tried finding it but no luck. She thinks she may have thrown it out with her weed clippings. BUT she has a friend that lost a signet ring. It was specially made by his father and given to him. His father has since passed and he just really wished he could find it. So I said sure I'd help if I could. Not 20 minutes later bam, dug down about 5 inches and there it was. Large silver signet ring. His partner was about as happy as one might be. I was so thrilled I could find it for him. That really is a wonderful feeling to make someones day. If you look closely it is on my finger.

A twofer! It's nice to find an item and then to make someone's day, year possibly in this case, is priceless. Congrats. May I ask what machine you used to find it?

It was the ATPro I'm glad it was silver. A bit easier to find. But then there was no signals at all.
