    Class ring return follow up.

    I found a ring on Jan. 1 2021, a 1967 Thorndale High School class ring. I was able to track the owner down by going to the Thorndale community board and asking if anyone had a 1967 annual.

    Well, low and behold someone did and there was only one name with the initials that matched what was engraved inside the ring. Another person, who was a student of his gave me his phone number. I texted him a message asking him if he lost a ring at the spot where I found it, and sure enough, this is what he wrote back....

    "Yes I did...our Senior Trip. (May of '67) One of the last ST's that Thorndale allowed. I figured I lost it swimming.. never to be seen again. Is there a story behind you're coming to possess the ring? I was upset when I found it not on my finger. My parents did get me a second ring, but my future wife lost it during our dating. 1970/71. Anyway will be exciting to have the ring again. (almost 54 years later)"

    The ring will be on it's way back to the owner tomorrow, here's before and after cleaning pictures.

    Nice return Dan! Find out where his wife lost the second one. Maybe you'll get a two-fer.
