Lost class ring, Found 22 years later, Sanford, Florida….and returned to owner!
A friend of ours told me about her lost diamond engagement ring and said it could have been dropped some where around the house that they used to live in, 20 some years ago! She had a sneaking suspicion that maybe one of her boys had gotten a hold of it and miss placed it either inside the house or maybe dropped it some where outside of the house in the yard…possibly! And since they only moved just across the street it has been easy access to the house and yard for the occasional metal detecting. I had started around the front of the house checking every signal that sounded off in the small gold ring range and I dug plenty of foil, pull tabs and pieces of construction aluminum from when the house was built. Next I went along a small grassy area between the houses and got a strong signal that just begged to be dug up! Four inches down I uncovered a large class ring of someone who graduated in the year 2000. The school name indicated a small Christian school that is no longer functioning but my own children attended that very school back in the day! So I asked around and found the parents of the young man who lost his ring and sure enough….while living in that house he had lost his ring shortly after graduating! I always get a thrill when I find a ring in the ground but it brings special joy when that ring has information on it that helps me return it to the rightful owner. In this case I called one of the parents and asked them about their son and his lost class ring and sure enough, he had lost it shortly after his graduation.
