In the Corner with Dan Hughes
189-151119 In the Treasure Corner - Hunting for a Lost Ring

The girl who sent me the email was frantic.  Her husband's wedding ring had come off his finger while he was raking leaves.  Did I know where she could rent a metal detector?  

So of course I offered to try to find his ring for her. 

This show is the story of that hunt, with tips on choosing the best detector for the job, and how to set your detector up for best results.

Also some questions to ask yourself.  Should you charge, should you ask permission to continue detecting after you've found the missing ring?

Did we find the ring?  

I think the photo gives you the answer to that question.
