    Gold band found with a lot of history

    I found this gold band on the way home from a hunt, only had less than 2 hours to hunt. But found this 8.1 gram 14kt band that has alot of history.
    it has been engraved with 3 different wedding dates and initials. If only I could research this somehow and get it back to him or her. The dates are as ffollows
    in old English script JB-RR 5-6-54
    stampted NO-JV 5-14-94
    hand engraved MF-JO 8-1-06
    58 years of martial history is a short span for 3 generations , very cool find that I would love to return. Any ideas on how to find a name from the wedding dates and initials.

    That could be almost anyone, anywhere. Granted, it would be really neat to be able to return
    something special like that, but you would have your hands full for sure. Wish you the best of
    luck should you decide to try to return it......still a nice find....well done. Gold Nuggets
    It's amazing just how much treasure people loose and we manage to find.

    Yes, been at it for hours to no avail. Can find every name and wedding dates for 1840-1900 but nothing past then? Very odd. They have them listed to where if the list was expanded it would be a breeze to find them.

    Is that 1954 through 2006?

    If so ...I'd try posting that last set of initials and date in Craigslist for location where found.

    Also...perhaps the local paper might like to take up the challenge and assist you? It would make a terrific story.

    Would be an interesting piece for a new paper article that someone might read if it was a local loss. They might even be able to search to see if anyone ever posted that loss in the lost and found. You might even do a LETTER TO THE EDITOR article. I know more people read those than the lost and found. Something rare.... looks like a mans ring that was passed down i wouldnt thing youd see that a lot. He might have not resized it just because of the history inside it. I find it odd that none had the same last name.

    May not be three generations. First interval is 40 years, next interval is 12 years. Who marries at age 12? Only thing I can think of is couples #2 and #3 are siblings of the same generation (two of the names end in "O" in marriage #2 and #3). Maybe marriage #2 ended in divorce and ring was given to couple #3 when they married. This is what makes sense to me...only my opinion. Hope this makes sense.

    I agree, contact the newspapers, they may be able to research and return for you.

    Nice find, btw!

    HH,

    in old English script JB-RR 5-6-54
    stampted NO-JV 5-14-94
    hand engraved MF-JO 8-1-06

    I agree with Anita, to a point. I think that JB-RR are grandparents to either NO or JV and that JV and JO are the same person. My guess is that NO passed away (I doubt divorce, since they kept that engraving in the ring) and MF-JO is a second marriage.
