Backyard hobby turns up wedding ring missing for more than 40 years
LONGSWAMP TWP., Pa. – A Berks County woman has been reunited with one of her most prized possessions after it went missing more than 40 years ago. Pearl Meck’s emotional mystery was recently solved by her granddaughter’s husband, Mike Caruso. Caruso was in need of a new hobby. He wanted to do something off the couch and outside to pass the time. He took up metal detecting, and has uncovered buried treasure ever since.
“Some silver rings, some change from the late 1700s and early 1800s,” said Caruso, just to name a few. He has collected a box full of coins, buttons and knobs over the past year-and-a-half, but it was Saturday when he struck gold near the septic system in Meck’s backyard in Longswamp Township.

New AT Pro Metal Detector
If you follow my blog you know that I have been using the Fisher F2 for the last few years, and then recently the Fisher F5.
I love Fisher detectors, and will always own one. They are great metal detectors!
Having said that, I couldn’t resist the chance to get in the water and look for some lost rings.
The summers here can be absolutely brutal with the humidity so being able to get in the water occasionally will be a welcome change to being stuck inside the house all summer long. Read full article
Cuts On Treasure Coast On Some Beaches and Helicopter Metal Detecting
Since I entered my pre post, I got out to the beach to see what the cold front did as it came through with the North winds.
