Smile Good Early Morning Hunt 07/09

I first hit a community park area with 3 soccer fields. Only found 2 clad dimes. I was able to recover an Apple I Phone for a lady that lost hers last evening. I was detecting and she was looking for her phone. She approached me and asked me if I had found a phone and I had not. I asked her to show me where she was sitting at her son's soccer game. I followed her and was able to find the phone in 5 mins. The grass was about 4" long and the phone had settled down in the grass. I did not take the money she offered me and she was very grateful. My good deed for the day. I then went back to the latest high school sports complex and hunted some spots I had not previously detected. I was able to find a nice .925 sterling ring, a Sacagawea dollar and $ 8.76 in clad coins all totaled I really did very well at this site considering it was my 4th hunt there in the past few days. My best find for the day was finding the Apple I phone for the lady. There was a daycare lady walking up the path with about 9 little kids taking them swimming at the indoor pool. One little guy asked me if I was searching for bombs. I kind of laughed a bit and said no just coins. Wow, little kids are aware of the dangers these days of bombs and bad things at schools. Kind of scary.

That is a good hunt day to remember. I like that ring. Reminds me of a good hunt day I had last year, with a ring similar to yours.
