Awesome Piece of History!

Recently, I was hunting at a New Hampshire beach with my Excalibur II, and 5 minutes in I got my first signal which turned out to be an encrusted Mercury dime. I thought to myself this is going to be a good day. I just put it in my pouch and kept on swinging. At that point I decided to head into the water. I looked down and saw a piece of aluminum trash, I scooped it up and put it in my trash pouch like any good detectorist would.

Very Exciting

I was out on my boat having a great day when I got a call from the guy who owns our local metal detector shop. He said that he got a call from a couple who were taking wedding pictures an hour before their wedding and the best man happened to lose both the bride and grooms rings somewhere in a field where they were all taking pictures. I got the call at about 4:15pm and the wedding was at 5pm.

I hit my usual beach that I had been detecting for many Weeks, I had meet a few of my buddys that day at low tide, the beach was full of tourist and beach goers that day. I had just stepped onto the water line, the same water line that I have hunted many many times, I got a great sound that I like to hear... nice and deep too, about 3 scoops out pops this nice ring. Best ring I've found, jeweler says 9000.00 to 12000.00 dollars...
