Today, 1/23/2013 I decided to hit the local park near my house for a few hours since my kids have a half a day of school on wednesdays and hit the playground area hard. remembering what a fellow detector buddy told me, hit the swing area because he had found a few rings there where the parents push their kids on the swings. I hit the front of the swing area pretty hard finding a few coins and hair pins then some parents showed up so I had to step away for a few till they left. Once they left I diligently hit the backside of the swings and hit a few good signals and recovered almost $2.00 in coins then it happened!!!! I got a solid ping, I flipped the switch forward and it stayed on 47 for the 4 swing and STRAIGHT Arrows! I pulled the trigger and swept over the area and it maxed out the Red Bar on my screen! I was a bit confused because I thought a good find would be in the Green bar and after watching my buddy recover a ring in the 7 8 range it wasn't going to a treasure. I couldnt believe what it was but as they say, "DIG EVERY SIGNAL" which I do! I pulled out my Whites Pinpointer and looked at the depth and saw it was in the 3-4" range and pointed the pinpointer right wher I got the strongest signal. I hadnt even hit the ground and it was singing!!! I moved the wood chips aside with my free hand and BOOM! A solid GOLD WEDDING BAND, 14K. I could feel the weight on it was even heavier then my 10K wedding band I was wearing it was AWSOME, Thanks Whites!
