    UPDATE St Christopher medal returned after missing for 41 years

    I did not know how to update the title of my original post or find the link to it. A little over a week ago I posted that I had found a silver St. Christopher medal and upon cleaning I noticed it was engraved. Doing a little search online I was able to track down the original owners wife on Facebook and messaged her and was able to set up a meeting with her husband. He was tickled to death to see it again. I asked if he remembered losing it and he said he did. He had purchased it when he was 12 with his Christmas money and then a few months later his parents had it engraved for him (good thing) he's 55 now and lost it playing football with some friends on a Sunday 41 years ago. He thanked me multiple times and said it's crazy how you can be so devastated to lose something but with time forget about it and to see it again absolutely made his year.

    I wasn't able to get a picture giving it back to him as we were the only ones there. This is my first find I was able to return and it truly felt great! Happy hunting everyone!

    Wonderful return day for both you & the guy who'd lost it. He'd probably searched for it soon after he lost it, then had to give up. Andi

    My philosophy is: It's none of my business what people say of me and think of me. I am what I am and do what I do. I expect nothing and accept everything. And it makes life so much easier.

    What a great story. And even better that he was able to recall so distinctly the event around it. He probably will cherish this medal FAR more than if he'd retained it all those years. What a great thing you've done with $0.50 of silver!

    Amazing..

    Returning a lost item is one of the things that is high on my wish list. That would be even better than finding a gold ring.

    Great job! The amount of info out there today makes our job of returning things so much easier. Can you imagine trying to do that 100 years ago?
