So tonight, armed with my Equinox 600, I went over.
I ignored the first couple of signals, too deep and didn't feel right.
Next signal, nice clear 6 on the TID, didn't vary at all and was showing as close to surface.
I carefully dug a small section of the turf out and tentatively used the pinpointer, it was about an inch further down.
I felt around, felt the tell-tale sign of a ring shape and pulled this out...
The ring she'd lost 8 years ago, found within 5 minutes, 2 inches down and in the only hole I needed to dig.
Needless to say they now think i'm some sort of detectorist magician ;-)

You really are the Top Cat
Now they will be telling various people of your success and you never know, may lead to a permission somewhere.

I found it lying vertically, [ the ring not me ] betwixt paving slabs.... a lovely lady ~ she was ecstatic and gave me a tenner ! Yes this was the good old fashioned 'Gold gold' but white gold is as mentioned, likely to produce
nowhere near as strong a signal
