    This ring was 14kt and weighed in at about 20 grams! The bad news? It was inscribed and I *KNEW* the name! LOL

    I was able to take this to the owner of the place and return his grandfather's ring! Lost many, many years ago! Tears were shed. (not by me ). So, I didn't get to keep it *BUT* I now have Carte Blanche on all of his properties! Lets just say its enough lawn to keep me busy the rest of my life!

    So....all in all....good news!

    Thanks for peeking !

    You sir, are a credit to the hobby. It will be paid back to you many times, because you only reap what you sow, and you put the best seed in the ground right there.

    Way to go my friend. That is what the hobby is all about. Nothing like being able to return something special that has been long gone.

    Somehow I missed this Gary. Glad to hear you made the guy's day with the return and it sounds like it certainly will pay off for you.
