    My first class ring, a real beauty.

    There used to be a toboggan run on a hill behind a town in my area, with a wooden chute for the sleds and everything. It was torn down and quickly began to overgrow back in the 70's. Now it is woods and prickers and few clues remain that it was once a winter fun land...

    Last evening I went up there to poke around with my detector and was stoked to pull this beautiful class ring out. It's in excellent condition, which is a miracle, since the area where I found it was littered with bonfire debris, old beer cans and bottle tops. I'm surprised it escaped being melted under some hot bonfire.

    Anyway, I got home and had no trouble at all determining whose ring it was back in 1973, (online yearbooks) and I sent him an email within 45 minutes of getting the ring home.

    Now I haven't heard back from him yet, but I'm hopeful he'll reply soon. This ring will bring back memories for him, I'm sure, as he was the kind of guy who was involved in everything in high school according to his yearbook description. And the ring must have been lost soon after he bought it, because it's in really good, barely scratched condition.

    I will definitely update here if the man contacts me back, but in any case I wanted to show you all this beautiful ring.
    Best of luck to all,
    Cynthia

    I agree with SD51, the karma you get back will be huge. I was able to return 2 wedding rings this year and not only does it feel great to do it, it puts us all in a better light. Fantastic ring find, keep us posted!
