Elena called me late this afternoon after finding my well hidden ad on Gumtree (I need to fix that). Anyway, it turned out George had lost his ring along a street and asked if I could take a look. The job was just around the corner so I packed the car and headed out and was there within 20min or so.
The ring was likely to be on either side of the road, so I spent maybe an hour searching one side then concentrated on the stretch along the other side of the road. Nothing too tricky about it and it was just a matter of time before it turned up under some leaves and bark at the base of a bush.
The only real issue with this one was lots of bottle tops and pull tabs along the road verge, but I was pretty confident of eventually getting the coil over it.
Gear was Minelab Sovereign GT with the smallest coil I have for it (to work in the metal junk) and the ever reliable Garrett Pro-pointer. A nice result and a great big chunk of ring back on George’s finger.
