We have another incredible story for you all! This week’s Treasure Find of the Week comes from Tyler J. back in March. He wanted to hunt some older property. The property owner of a home built in 1903 approached him and said his grandmother lost a diamond ring under ones of the trees by a close by pond. After seeking permission, he went out hunting to find the ring. After the owners wife was there anxious for Tyler to find the ring, he did discover a 1942 British three pence that he found! He also found three wheats and an old pocket knife. After leaving that location, he found another home built in 1880 and was approached by this saying from the owner, “You will not find anything.”
He explained how different people use different metal detectors that all don’t do the same thing. The owner said “I’ve been here for 25 years and the place has been detected at least 5 times since I’ve been here, but, you’re more than welcome to give it a shot. Just fill in your holes.” He was about ready to quit, but after his intuition told him to return, he was so glad he did. He ended up finding a class ring and his first gold ring! After going home, he discovered the ring was 10k gold and had the initials B.L.W. He went on a mission to find the owner. He decided to use social media to his advantage and joined an alumni page on Facebook. He ended up with a lead from one of the group members and you will not believe what happens next! Read the rest here.
He used his Garrett AT Pro to hunt.
