Default Found and Returned

Friday Morning about 15 minutes after sunrise i walked onto the beach for some detecting therapy before it got hot and the sun worshipers showed up.

First target was a chain with two rings, Two keys and two tags. Actually saw the chain before the coil got to it.

One of the rings was a 10k yellow gold and the second ring was a High School ring from 2016. One of the tags said FEAR not.

Did so research and found that the HS ring was from a local high school and the ring had a young mans name engraved in it. Wife and i did some research online and found him on Facebook. So i called his place of employment and spoke to him.

This Morning i drove to his place of employment and returned his rings. He was very grateful to get everything back. I think the tag that said FEAR not was hand made by his father. It appeared to be very important to him.

Second class ring return this year. I have heard from some guys in our metal detecting club that my Pirates License has been revoked and someone was talking something about a Plank.

Awesome return


While I haven't found anything that could possibly be returned, I hope that when I do, that I'll be able to do a good turn and return it to the person who owned it.


I need all the karma I can get LOL


Actually, I'm hoping to find a class ring near my daughter's college, return it to the Dean's office, and get permission to search the campus (private college)

Did he give you a story on how he managed to lose it? Somersaults?

No I did not ask. He was so happy to get his stuff back that I did not think to ask.

How cool! I feel like stories like this will keep me from greedily keeping any finds that I could possibly return lol.
