Went down to VA Beach last night for the midnight low tide. Took my friends Barry & Nelson along in search of gold. About an hour into the hunt I was approached at the water line by a guy and a girl. Both in their mid 20's. The guy said his friend was playing football and caught a pass, but when he caught it, his gold wedding band popped off. They asked if I might be able to help them find it. Told them I'd give it a shot. So they walked me to the spot of the lost ring where three guys were searching the sand with their cell phone lights. I dropped my scoop and dragged it behind me so I knew where I was gridding. Made one pass about 30 feet long, turned around and on about the third swing I had his heavy yellow gold band in the scoop. They were all super excited, and very appreciative. Always makes me feel good helping someone out like that. B)

After we talked for a minute I went back down to the water, and the VERY next target I dug was a nice 10k gold ring! INSTANT KARMA!!! I couldn't believe it! Up until then, the only thing I had dug was about 7 pennies. Someone else was happy I helped out I guess, and I was rewarded!

Also found a titanium men's band, but didn't take a photo of it. All in all, I totaled 63 cents, a bunch of junk earrings, the titanium band and the GOLD!

Happy hunting everyone!

Thanks for that cool story and a great gold find! ;)
And thanks for adding a little more good will towards all detectorists too! B)

Of course digging up pull tabs and nails is a way to burn off some BAD karma! :dry:
We should all be saints by now! :lol:
