Great service. I lost my keys at the dog park and was worried I would never see them again. After a search online I found Kansas Relics and recovery. I contacted Steven from Ring Finders and he reached out to is network of friends. I was quickly contacted by David, a local treasure hunter. He showed up quickly and after a discussion about priority search locations the keys were quickly found. I am so appreciative that David volenteered his time to search. A wonderful service. I would still be searching for my keys if it wasn't for Steve and David.

Lost my wedding ring in my front yard trying to stop my dog from running towards another dog passing by. I was literally searching for HOURS and had absolutely no luck at all. I texted Steven late that night and he was here the next day as soon as possible. Within 20-30 minutes of him showing up and searching he recovered my ring. If you have ever misplaced a valuable item especially a wedding ring, I'm sure you know how grateful you feel when you (or someone else in my case) finds it! 10/10 recommend, 1,000 times thankful to him for coming to the rescue!

I was skeptical about having a stranger looking inside our house, but Steven was amazing! He was a true professional, who knows his stuff and is also extremely considerate of your home and personal space. He quickly established trust with us and I allowed him to have free access to go around the house. I could not imagine a better experience, under the circumstances.Thanks, Steven!

History is never lost, just buried away

.     Hi! Its me Steve, your friendly neighborhood Metal Detectorist and Professional Recovery service.  Have you lost a Ring, Necklace or other Piece of Jewelry or family heirloom? Did your car keys get lost in the sand? I'm a Metal Detecting relic and recovery expert residing in the Manhattan, KS area. I specialize in finding those lost items and re-uniting them with their owners.  This is a complementary service I provide out of the kindness of my heart.

     I also specialize in providing Metal Detecting services to Local Historical Preservation and Archaeological Society's. Let me help you search for long lost Relics and save a piece of history. 

     If you are a construction company and need a lot cleared prior to construction please contact me for pricing.  

Lastly and most important,  the sport of Metal Detecting would not exist without the gracious permission of home and land owners like yourself.  If you own land with a house, or old foundation that predates the 1960's, don't let old history stay lost forever. Give us a call or shoot us an email and ask how we can find out what history lie just inches below the surface.  If you suspect that your property might contain some history but not sure, reach out and we would be happy to come out.   We know exactly what all the signs of old long forgotten habitation looks like.
