18k lost gold chain Dee Why Beach, Sydney. Returned to owner

Lost Jewellery Recovery just received a metal detecting call out for a lost gold chain on Dee Why Beach, Sydney, Australia. The owner Rod was stressed and upset with himself for losing his 18k, 50 gram gold chain. It’s an expensive loss, however the sentimental value of his chain far exceeds its weight in gold. This chain was a gift from his grandmother who had passed away. Rod told me I did a lost jewellery recovery for him 5 years ago for his lost gold wedding ring I found for him, I apologised as I did not remember him as we have had hundreds of lost jewellery recoveries since then and normally I’m pretty good at remembering faces. I got to Dee Why Beach within the hour to meet up with Rod, after Rod explained the search area I then set up the grid search using my XP Deus ll metal detector and Quest X-Pointer Max Metal detector. 5 minutes into the search BINGO I get a T.ID reading of 49 on my metal detector, I use the Quest X-Pointer Max to locate this beautiful gold chain. Rod SCREAMED in joy and said you legend Michael as I pulled his lost gold chain from the sand, THANK YOU so much. I replied you are most welcome it’s beautiful gold chain you can continue to keep in your family where she belongs.
