*UPDATE WITH VIDEO OF RING RETURN* Made the Front Page of the Local Newspaper.
I am returning a 10KT gold class ring to the owner at my club meeting next month. The newspaper got wind of it and did a cover story. I hope you like it.
York High class ring lost 25 years ago found in mud at Winthrop Lake | Andrew Dys | Rock Hill Herald Online
UPDATE: Here is the video of me returning the ring.

It's dangerous to be right when those with a thimbleful of perceived authority are wrong.
Outstanding. Honorable mention!

Nice job. Wouldn't it be nice if Spain gave us back all the treasure they plundered over here that they now claim ownership to on the bottom of the Ocean. I say let them find it & don't give them salvage rights in our waters.

Congrats and that is a nice thing you did and liked what you said in the article about we are in it for the history, not the money.

Congrats on doing the right thing! By you getting in the paper it makes the whole hobby look better. I especially agree with your statement, “We aren’t in it for any money. We find history.” May you have many more great hunts.

Metal Detecting isn't a Crime!!!
Always great to see a fine example in this hobby...
Folks like you and others here should be spot lighted on detecting shows.
