A western Kentucky man who bought a beat up metal detector on a whim at a yard sale used his new toy to rediscover a lost anniversary gift.
David Tincher of Madisonville paid $10 for the detector on Monday, started poking around the yard. Tincher told The Messenger the initial search went slowly a few nails and some old tools at the house built in 1792.After a while, Tincher and his wife Judy searched near a tree where the beeper on the detector went off.
“Something set the beeper off, and my friend dug up a small pile of sod and dirt,” David Tincher said.
In the dirt, Tincher found a large gold ring inlaid with diamonds _ an anniversary gift from his wife of 51 years. Judy Tincher gave him the ring in September 2000 and he lost it a month later while raking leaves.
