ID:	1040278I saw the father standing outside the church sunday morning and took it upon myself to go ask the never ending question. "would it be ok if i did a little md'ing in the church yard?" He said yes and gave me a little history on the church itself. The church was built in 1908 but there was another church there that was disassembled and moved right next door to it. It is now the parrish hall and it was first built in the 1860's. So i went over there yesterday and got skunked save for a 44 wheat(not the silver one, sadly). This morning i went back and got shut out again. So i went back again later in the afternoon and almost gave up on the IH dig and the ring, i seriously thought.." i'm not digging that piece of foil or bottle cap" but i decided to dig anyway and came up with the ring. Long story but all true. I'll post some pics of this church, it's a beauty and i live right across the street.

    Remember its not the treasures we find or the length of the journey. But the fact that when we are done we can look back at our life and smile with a satisfied feeling that we enjoyed the trip. So always "Keep Swinging And Keep Smiling"

    Thank you. That's a 1951 class ring from my town. I'm going to do everything i can to locate the person but 1951 was a long time ago and it was a good 6" deep so i think it's been there awhile. That is my first "s" mint, aswell. Living in NY there scarce to say the least.

    Beautiful ring. And 18K...? I'm resisting the urge to calculate the scrap value... good on you for trying to hunt down the owner.
