    Anyone recognize this crest?

    I believe the first word on the left is STRONG - I can't make out the other two words. Anyone recognize what this crest is from and maybe know what it says? It's from a 1957 ring.

    It was found in Florida but at a tourist beach so it could be from anywhere.

    You're going to have to start researching " Heraldry " and unless you luck out, you got some digging to do. Everything on that crest means something and it's read like a road sign, only you gotta know the language. Good Luck!

    I think it may be a class ring for Strong Vincent High School -

    Does it have a date on either side? I might be wrong, (usually am) but I think most class rings have the date on one side. Also, is there anything stamped on the inside of the ring?

    Checking out that school their emblem appears to be a silhouette of that General.Attachment 1309749 this is the only book I have on heraldry, I can't find yours in it, but this one book is only a drop in the bucket.

    I still feel pretty sure Bramblefind is correct, mostly based on the words around the shield being Strong Vincent High School. 19 and 57 (1957) on the sides of the red portion shown in first photo.

    The OP could contact that school for verification:
    https://www.alumniclass.com/strongvincent/contact?email
    If confirmed, they also have a page for Lost and Found class rings.

    Cover of one of their yearbooks seems conclusive: Explore 1977 Strong Vincent High School Yearbook, Erie PA - Classmates

    Some history: Strong Vincent High School is named after Brigadier General Strong Vincent who is best known for his courageous efforts in the Battle of Gettysburg where he suffered a fatal wound in his defense of Little Round Top. On October 24, 1930 the formal dedication of the school was held and the Vincent Family Crest became the school's Coat of Arms and family motto, Virtute non viribus Vincent (by courage, not by force of arms, we conquer).

    If you're satisfied with that, mark it solved, but it only slightly resembles it.

    I didn't even see the date when I posted my reply! So much for my powers of observation!
