    Well, now I'm 2 for 2. . .

    . . . for finding ring owners that is.

    Last September, I found my first gold class ring (class of 1971) and was able to send it back
    to it's owner before Christmas.

    About 10-days after I returned it, I found my SECOND class ring (I just had to find another to
    replace the first one ) This second ring was class of 1974 and fortunately, had the student's
    full name engraved on the inside.

    Through the WONDERFUL help of Des Plaines Silver Bob's sister who's a member of
    an ancestry website, I was able to contact the owner of this second ring. After asking her some
    questions about the ring itself and how it may have been lost, it was in fact hers.

    I guess I'll have to find a another class ring to replace this one now. . . maybe today at the sledding hills

    nice! i can't imagine how shocked these people are when someone turns up on their doorstep with a ring they lost 35 years ago
    must be as much of a buzz for you as finding it
    Who needs Cartwheel Pennies anyway?

    2 for 2 is outstanding! Great job returning them! I lost my class ring 3 days after I bought it, I know where and was able to look for it even as a seasoned detector but did not find it. Congrats but too bad you could not hand it over in person with pictures. HH, Mike

    Great job returning the tings, Mark!

    I don't know what to wish for for ya - a third ring from a close-by owner so you can return it in person, or a gold ring you can keep for yourself... I know either one would thrill you.

    Come to think of it, I think you deserve a keeper!
