Gold Class Ring Found and Returned

So, around the middle of March last year (2014) I was hunting for coins in a ball field at a local middle school and found this beautiful high school gold class ring.  It had initials on the inside and was dated 1988.  I left a message with the school’s alumni lost ring site with the description and my contact information.  I never heard anything back but I hung onto the ring.  A couple weeks ago my son, who graduated in 1987 from the same high school, was visiting from Idaho.  He spotted the ring in my collection and got interested.  He’s involved somehow with the alumni association and said he might be able to track the owner so I gave him the ring and told him to give it a shot.  Well, a couple days later he called and said he found the owner, Kelley, and has since returned it to her through her husband.  It turns out back in 87 she had just gotten the ring and was playing in a powder-puff ball game on that field and had given the ring to her boyfriend for safe keeping…..   Her family actually tried to find it with a metal detector but to no avail.  It was lost forever:)

As you can see from the pic, Kelley’s pretty happy to get it back

    Wow…Great discovery! I wonder how much trouble her boyfriend got that day! I love reading these types of stories because it must just surprise the heck out of people to find out that someone found their ring that they gave up on so many years ago!

    Nice find Tony! The “found it first” stories are my favorite!
