High School Class Ring Lost for 30 Years Found!

  • from Columbia (South Carolina, United States)

Mical was just fantastic!  We were on a metal detecting trip (my first ever) at a spot we thought might contain some Civil War relics.  He was patient with me and on my very first dig he even identified the coin before we dug it out of the ground!!  At the end of the day I mentioned that my grandfather lost his 1951 high school class ring almost 30 years ago in his garden.  My grandfather’s home was a different location about ten minutes away and we had less than an hour to search.  Mical told me if my grandfather lost it in his old garden then he (Mical) would find it.  Literally, after less than 20 minutes detecting the spot, Mical pulled out my grandfather’s ring in about 2-3 inches of soil!!  He was careful with it and cleaned it up some and we presented it to my grandfather right after Mical found it.  I cannot thank Mical enough and if you lose an item precious to you or your family call him first!  His professionalism, friendly demeanor, and genuine spirit of helping others says it all.  Call Mical first!!!  Thank you again from my family and I.

Lost Platinum Engagement Ring FOUND!

  • from Columbia (South Carolina, United States)

Mical worked so incredibly hard to find my ring. He showed up at the exact time he said he would be there and searched everywhere we asked. He searched for over 5 hours and finally found it in a 30 yd container bin full of horse manure and shavings. I never thought we’d find it after 2 days of searching, and Mical spent his entire Sunday trying to find it.


White Gold Wedding Band Found in Grovetown, GA

  • from Columbia (South Carolina, United States)

Mical drove an hour and a half each way, and spent 4-5 hours searching for my wife’s wedding and engagement rings. He came prepared with test rings, multiple detectors, and a positive and understanding attitude.  He found one of the rings very quickly, and spent hours rechecking the area, crawling through hedges, and throwing test rings until we had to make him give up.  We had to twist his arm to get him to take anything more than gas money, and then we found the second ring the next day by working off of the areas he had eliminated for us.  We were very impressed with his knowledge of the hobby, and couldn’t be happier with the results!

Lost Cache of Silver Coins Found!

  • from Columbia (South Carolina, United States)

I received a call from a gentleman who had buried a cache of silver coins 5 years ago but couldn’t locate them because some of the surrounding reference points had changed since they were buried.  I arranged to meet him the next day and after about a 30 minute search,  they were located.
