    Agreed. However, the reward or acknowledgement really is in the act of getting it back to the owner and the look of astonishment when you hand it back to them.

    OK. Ill start at the beginning....The Ring had a bear on it so i Googled Easton Maine High School. Sure enough their mascot is the bears so I was confident I had the right school. Next I took to the internet to find a yearbook but no luck. This where it gets frustrating.... I contacted the school and explained i found a class ring from 1970 and asked if they had yearbooks at the school. The woman asked for the initials and said she would look it up and get back to me. After a week I got no call so I called them back and they said they know who it is. But its against the law to give out school records so they wont tell me her name. I asked if they found her in yearbook and she said yes. I asked if i were to drive 3 hours north if I could see it and she said yes. I asked if i can come see it, why cant you tell me over the phone? She said the yearbooks are school property and considered school records and its illegal to give out school records. She said the best they can do is try to contact her and give her my info and if she wants to contact me she can. I was kinda flabbergasted at that point. So a week or so goes by and a friend of mine who is signed up to a site called classmates contacted me and said he found 2 women who are on classmates and in her graduating class. He sent email to both of them and 3 months goes by and nothing... Then one day out of the blue he got email with her name. Once I had her maiden name I google searched Easton and her name and it took 10 minutes to find her. Her husband was a town manager for 23 years and retired in 2017. So I called the town office and asked if they could still get in touch with him and let him know about the ring. They were more than happy to help and that night the ring owner called me When I told her I think I found your class ring she immediately cut me off and said she lost it in july 1971 at a park in a specific town and near the river. I didnt even need to get to describing the ring, she told me exactly where it was found so I knew it was hers. They just happened to be coming through my town a few days later and did the return at my work. She didnt ask a whole lot about how I found her but more how she was surprised it was found after so long and i was good enough to go through the trouble of getting it back to her. She was pretty happy to get it back. Her husband said she been tellin all her friends about it the few days before the return One of my fav detecting moments and will gladly try to return again if I ever find another one!
