My Best Find Ever

A couple years ago I was hunting a cut on a beach in Massachusetts. I wasn't getting much so I decided to walk a little further down the beach. My excal decided to talk to me and I dug a crematory tag, which is not uncommon for us to find.

Before throwing it out to deeper water I said a little prayer and before it hit the water I asked to find a piece of jewelry. As I turned, not more than a foot from where I found the tag the excal sung again.

This time it was a silver wedding band,and the hair went up on my neck. I held the band towards the water and said "real funny can I get something with gold on it."

About 5 feet later again the excal sung. As I pushed the pile of dirt around I saw watch; it was a Rolex 2 tone sub mariner with the gold bezel. The chills came over me for this is the best find I have ever gotten.

I felt there was a presence around me I could not explain, at which time I said thank you and left still with the chills going through me. The next day I brought it to my jeweler and had it authenticated. The watch new retailed for $13,500. This was my best find ever.
