Metal Detector Treasure Finds, Pictures and Stories
Coinmaster Finds 14k Ring on the Beach!
I recently purchased a White's Coinmaster from my local dealer in North Carolina, and I talked my wife into taking the kids to the beach. When we got there, it was nice and warm for an October day. The kids were playing in the sand, digging a hole, the wife was relaxing on the beach in her chair, and I was content on digging the beach.
I was going along, and after about an hour, I got a strong nickel signal, and I was thinking yay another nickel, so I dug my homemade scoop into the sand, and dug, and dug, and dug. I probably dug a good 8-10" and started sifting the sand, and then I hear the sound of metal on the 1/4" fabric inside my digger. I just peeked inside the digger expecting a nickel, and out came a fabulous 10K yellow Gold Diamond Ring, I about wet myself, I dropped the detector, and ran to my wife, and showed her my find. She looked at me, and said... WOW! That's pretty. Now go find me some more.
I kept detecting, although I didn't find another ring that day, I did find about $2.26 in change. I have to say after having the detector for about a week it sure paid for itself. The ring was appraised at $200-$300. The great thing about this story is that it was my first ring. I was absolutely amazed, and I sure will keep on buying White's Detectors.
Thanks for all the hard work you guys put into your detectors, they are absolutely wonderful.
