    14K ring found & returned, good deeds paid off with silver!!

    Hey guys, I had no idea where I wanted to go today so I headed to a new town about 50 miles from home, I was driving around in this historic town and just about every house had me drooling! super old homes, so I see this guy sitting on his front porch, pull in and give my pitch. He says "sure, and as a matter of fact I lost this ring last year that I had forever, so if you don't mind will you look for it for me?" he said it was lost last year so I figured itd be easy, he said likely back yard so a griddin' I went, in no time (10 mins) I found it! it was just below the grass, mustve stepped on it, or ran it over with his mower or something. big CHUNKY 14K ring! My first REAL ring!!, Click image for larger version.

ID:	1001443I kept my composure and put it in my pocket, and did the rest of the yard, nice size front and back yard produced some killer finds!, a huge bell that broke, a pocket knife, 20 wheats of various years, 2 cool skeleton keys, a dog tag from 2000, a gigantic spoon, a carwash token, some ornate flower thing, another ornate cone shaped object, spoon handles, some weird buckle that's right above the wheats in the picture, a old copper ring, and about 3 bucks in clad, oh yeah and what else 2 MERCURY DIMES!! silvers 20 and 21 on the year!! I also found a couple pieces of reins from a horse or something with leather still attached to it.Click image for larger version.

ID:	1001447 after that It was getting late and I have work tonight so I figured id better head home. I absolutely HAD to toy with this guy a bit. I emptied all my pockets on a table outside and showed him the coins and relics and he was impressed but sad about the ring. So just like the episode of diggers where KG gives the ring back to the owner after showing him everything I did the same thing!, I said "heres everything I found but wait, theres another" and plopped it in his hand, guys if you could've seen his face, his eyes lit up and his wife was ecstatic. Funny getting a hug from a 70 something year old person that I just met! He got a little teary eyed and shook my hand with a $20 bill in it, I said no thank you, I was more than happy to do it! That was an amazing feeling to do that, I read about it, heard others stories about doing it, but to actually get a chance to do it is indescribable, I just wish I got a picture or video of me handing it to him, either way Today was just awesome!!, thanks for looking and HH!!

    thanks! that means a lot. Even he said "ya know not many people would've done that", it was actually a pretty easy decision. All part of this whole "adulthood" thing I suppose. lol

    Congrats, buddy! It really is an awesome feeling, isn't it? Nothing like the beaming smile you get when they first see it and realize it's really been returned. I am glad it's made you happy!

    You just gave him a story he will tell over and over for the rest of his life. You made the rest of us look good too!

    THANKS!

    It does feel good to give it back, doesn't it?
