    I really like the fact that you told the farmer you would take it, photo it, clean it, and return on Monday, and he trusted you to do just that. Honest folks trusting one another and everybody wins.

    Congrats on the find, and making the farmer and his wife so happy. May your next gold find be of the hammered variety!

    We build trust with all our farmers, so it's earned not given. Remember we only recently told him about the 1881 Gold Coin, the 2nd gold coin from his land. We will, if time permits show him that coin as well on Monday. (Along with all the other finds)

    Which one?
    Jeff normally doesn't give them without proof (picture of me handing to farmer). No way I'm asking the owner to do that, it would expose us both to unwanted attention.
    I'm just happy I could add another great story to our detecting career. The ring meant nothing to me, & everything to him, easy choice/no brainer in my eyes.

    UPDATE;
    Something I should have said in the top post. We have returned a few rings to owners that asked us to find them, but this is the FIRST we found by accident/luck.

    Nice. I have a few gold wedding bands but no clue on who may have lost them.

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    You probably have far more than me. Gold Rings of any date are a very rare find for us.

    I'm very glad it's his, I'm not that interested in Rings & have given away or sold one (I couldn't afford to keep & split the money with owner). So, I saw it as an unusual find but scrap metal, nothing more.(bearing in mind, I never sell anything as a rule)

    Excellent Cru, I'm sure he was very happy getting his ring back. Hopefully his wife hasn't been holding this over his head for the past 15 years.

    What did he think of the gold coin? Was he cool with letting you keep it as a reward for your good deed?

    I think it should still be honorable mention with out a pic?? You've got 23 banner finds and have helped countless people on this site, they're exceptions to the rule?
    Congrats on the return and being a stand up guy!!

    He had already taken less than 50% melt value for us to keep it.

    Also saw his son today who had heard of the return of the ring. To me & probably to him, it needs no reward, other than its own value as a great true story.

    PS. Having met the wife, I don't think she was mad for long.

    Thanks for the kind words. I think I recently saw such an exception.

    I kind of hope I don't get it, it's kind of a running joke with me.
