A Woman Lost Her Wedding Ring in 1958 and Searched for It for 55 Years . . . Then a Guy with a Metal Detector Found It in Two Hours
There's a 77-year-old woman in Scotland named Joan MacLeod, who lost her wedding ring when it slipped off her finger in a cornfield back in 1958.
Her husband bought a replacement ring when he got out of the Air Force, but Joan REALLY wanted the first one back. So for 55 YEARS, she went back to the field every so often to look for it, but didn't have any luck.
Well, recently Joan and her husband saw a 75-year-old man named Eric Soane walking through a DIFFERENT field with a metal detector, and challenged HIM to find the ring.
So he accepted the challenge . . . which sounds like something a guy with a metal detector just DREAMS OF. And sure enough, it only took about two hours before he FOUND IT buried under about six inches of dirt.
Joan says the ring doesn't fit anymore, because her joints are swollen from mild arthritis. But she refuses to let a jeweler resize it by CUTTING it. Instead, she's hoping they can stretch it out a little so she can start wearing it again. (Daily Mail)
