    Hi In your effort to locate a past owner or the history of the ring I strongly suggest you get in contact with the " Mighty Eighth Army Air Force " in Pooler GA. They are the epic center for the Army Air Force during WW2 . They have extensive records of Crews and even The aircraft they served on If you have any initials ect on the ring I am sure they can give you adaquate information Good Luck https://www.mightyeighth.org/

    Fantastic find. Hopefully you'll be able to return it to the family or the airman himself. Congrats.

    Congrats on an excellent find, and best of luck finding the family. I know they will appreciate receiving it back, as most of our WW11 Veterans are no longer with us. Keep us updated.

    I was able to return a gold ring to a 90 year old woman after being lost for 70 years. It was definitely one of the best experiences of my detecting career.

    Good luck, and congrats on the great find

    Thanks everyone. Fortunately his full name is on the inside of the band. Unfortunately he and his wife passed away in the 1990s as well as his brother last year. He left behind children and grandchildren. My wonderful wife is trying to locate his children. Im so humbled to have found such a piece of history.

    Spectacular find! Far greater than the average class ring. The owner could be only 20 years older than me. Hopefully he is still with us. Will make a great return. Good luck.

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    Great save !!
    After '41, all bombardier's were officers.
    The panel between the eagle and the airplane might hold the officer's graduation month from Bombardier's school (like 42-4); or his service number.
    Take pics of the return, if possible.

    Second Thought on locating a family Try the Vets Administration Grave registration site That will have where he is buried if he is at a national cemetry This will usually show even if he is at a pvt cemetry If you can find the grave you can check with the location who placed him there and go from there or even a funeral home since they would have record of who paid the bill Just a thought Keep searching
