    I have been reading this off and on, and seeing all the " return to family " comments. But the guy who contacted the family and told them of this thread , whoah.. You did what??!!!! That was So not your place . I agree , delete this thread , before it makes trouble for the finder.

    WTF?? Why would someone even think about doing anything with someone else's find? Go find your own relics to give away and let people make their own decisions on contacting or not!! I really can't believe someone did this without consulting the finder first man!! Completely wrong!

I know from my own experience as a relic-dealer that the majority of descendants care more about the relic's dollar-value than anything else. They'll sell grandpa's personal relics to buy a TV. If you doubt it, take a look at all the personal identified WW1 and WW2 relics for sale at shows and on Ebay.

    Let me make clear, I am not saying we shouldn't return a 20th-Century civilian-usage item, like an engraved wedding ring or school ring. I'm just talking about high-value Historical Military relics. (A 20th-Century soldier's dogtag is not high-value.)

    If a descendant can be contacted and he/she expresses interest in their soldier ancestor's high-value personal-identified relic, I'd give him/her "first shot" at buying it. If you simply give it to them, experience shows that the odds are better than 50/50 that it'll be for sale on Ebay (or somewhere else), sooner or later. Sad, but true.

    I also think the odds are better than 50/50 that Mark's personal-ID civil war soldier's ring means more to him than it would to any of Pvt. Richardson's descendants.
    Well said, great advice, lets hope everyone respects the finders privacy and not get all happy assed and do something they regret.

    a very nice suggestion.
    it would be great if the ring can be returned to the orignal family.

    Amazing find......and the question of relatives is difficult at many now some 150 years later....
    No, it is the finders to do with as he pleases......would guess it would be awesome in a deserving museum with the history, but that is my opinion........
    Great thread, God bless ya'll
