    I graduated in '73 Only reason I know Mine as 10K is because I found allot of Those Rings & the School class rings were all 10K.
    don't know what was on it, and i don't know if i had my middle initial.
    or size.

    however I would be upset if Someone told me they had a Ring from My Year with My initials
    and Refused to Give it to me.
    Imo It would me Mine to stash, sell, Or loose again

    Jeff, I have found well over 100 gold class rings. From 1901 - the 1990's. Only one was 14K. Every one else was 10K. I totally agree with you. Once you contact someone, you are obligated to follow up with what you started. I scrap all class rings from the 1900's - the 1940's. I don't expect to find any of those people alive.

    Please leave a ring after the beep. Thank You.

    I would not keep a ring with someone else's initials on it BUT that being said, I would have to be 100% sure it was going to the rightful owner also.
    If no one convincing claims it, I would feel bad giving it to someone knowing the owner could contact me after the fact. Now a ring lost then found then given to the wrong person would have Me look bad.
    Nice find. I only have found one class ring (and returned), but that was easy finding the owner because it was a local school and was only lost 9 years ago plus he was the ONLY person in that graduating class with those initials.

    Not to sound cheesy, but that's a good person who returns these personal items. Especially in todays materialistic, money driven society. Nobody would ever know you found that thing. Nice to see.

    Take the high road...send the ring.

    The worst that could happen is that is the receiver is a fraud. That is on THEM. You did the right and honorable thing. You may "lose" a few dollars of scrap value, but you gain the ability to have "an honest man's pillow is his peace of mind."

    This is why I never and will never come to a forum of any kind to ask about a gold ring I found.

    Let me just state my position. If I dig up a ring, first and foremost, it belongs, NOW, to ME! Period.
    After that, if I CHOOSE to try and return it because of a name/circumstances I will first ask why they think
    I feel the ring is the one they lost. (as opposed to a ring that "belongs" to them) I'll also ask them for a
    description of the ring they lost. Then, and only then, I'll consider sending it to them, no charge.

    I actually returned one recently that I did some heavy research to find the owner because they had their full
    name inscribed inside. I was fortunate that they were a known, local celebrity who was no longer local but rather
    a regional celebrity. I contacted, they responded, I was satisfied with their description of why I thought it was theirs and
    the ring. I sent it to them. I got a nice, albeit rather polite, "thank you". That's it. Did I expect more? Probably. It was worth
    about 200 now and it could've just become part of a melted block for sale. No offer to compensate my time, (I didn't ask),
    just sort of a wham, bam, thank you ma'am sort of letter. Sure did warm the cockles of my bottom.

    Anyway, there's at least one thing about your story that strikes me as odd. The way this person seemed to attempt to
    associate this ring with a crime, stolen goods, AND....where of all places was this to have taken place? California. I really
    do NOT think that this person is some high end bad guy and trying to set up a case in order to get this lowly *little* piece
    of gold. But, it does seem interesting to me.

    In this case, given what you've already done, send it to her and write it to experience. Be a little smarter next time, at least you
    did get that bit of experience from the exchange.

    I found a class ring last year that was about 300 miles from the school it was from. I called the school and they got a phone number for me. I talked to this lady and she didn't know any details of the ring and also had no association of the area it was found. She gave me no information for me to believe that was her ring. She wanted me to immediately meet her at a Walmart by her and give her the ring. I went with my instincts and decided that this was not the person I was looking for.

    Nowadays who wouldn't take a free gold ring from a stranger?

    My two cents is... if you feel sick about giving it to her, hold onto it and say I'm looking into the path of the other girl. I had a similar situation and it didn't sit well. I used a valid excuse like there was another person I was checking out and I never heard back from that person. They forgot about it and I knew immediately they weren't the owner. Trust your gut.
    It's not what you find that defines you, it's your attitude in doing what you love that show people who you really are.

    I'm thinking see what the other person has to say. The odds of this ring making it back to within 10 miles of her school, from California, are zero.

    Tommy, do whatever you feel is right. The fact that you pulled a gold ring out of the frozen Michigan tundra this early in the year can only mean that you will have a banner year! Can't wait to see what you find next!

    I agree, do what your heart tells you to. And thanks for being an honorable person. Many would never have gone this far to try and return this ring. It brings honor to our hobby.

    i'm sure your doing the right thing..send it to her, if some one else says it's theres.. just give her the address of whom you sent it to.
    me, myself , and i would do the same..karma will get her if she's lying..
    hope it works out well..
    that is a nice find.
    congrats on the recovery..
