    A Ring and its owner were re-united today

    Back in January I found a men's 10K wedding band at a local park. I hadn't had any luck finding the owner and figured it was mine. Then today for some reason I went to this park at the end of my hunting day instead of the beginning.

    Hadn't been there long when a young man and his some came to the park. He asked if I had found a gold wedding ring there. I asked him where he lost it and what it looked like. He described it perfectly and knew he had lost it in the same area where I found it. I told him I had his ring and we made arrangement for me to bring it to his work place later on.

    We had snow on the ground then and he told me he was playing in the snow with his son when the ring slipped off. He knew he had lost it but couldn't find it. It was also apparent that he was visually impaired so that not doubt hindered his search.

    I took the ring to him about 4PM today and he was very excited to have it back. I have attached a picture I took back in January.

    GREAT DEED there Seeker. I'm sure he was quite excited to get it back. That's the "warm fuzzie" part of detecting.

    I am sure the ring ment the world to that gentleman. Good deeds are always rewarded.

    Like the paper clip idea, will hav to borrow that next time I post a ring find.

    Thanks for the idea.

    What a nice thing you did! I guess it's a good idea to hang on to your golden finds and not sell them too quickly, just in case.

    Yes very good deed, did this guy offer you a reward? Just wondering, I am the type of person that if someone found something valuable of mine I would offer a reward or a gift certificate. Also when returning the ring did you get a picture? As far as taking the reward if one was offered that is an individual choice, I probably in this case would not.
