Meggie this is a great write up. Two points really hit home.

People losing stuff. When people see me with my detector, or know that I do detect, I am often privy to a good lost piece of jewelry story.

Most of these losses happened long before and there is usually nothing that can be done about them. But it is the sheer percentage of people who, at least once in the life, lost some piece of jewelry somewhere, either at the beach or between here and there; and many times their not sure where.

I also like the part about dodgy signals. I use an Excal in the water and over the last 7 years have learned to always dig those broken or crummy tones. They are music to my ears! Broken tones from items surround by iron bits, tones that sound 99% like a rusty Corona beer bottle cap, and the plentiful pull rings have all turned into golden treasure.

Happy hunting. Steve in NY
