Found 1959 Men's Gold Class Ring and Returned to Owner

I was in Colorado this past week helping my dad winterize his ranch and I was able to have a few moments to metal detect the yard from his late 1800's house. I found allot of clad coins but I did find a Gold mens High School class ring from 1959. After some online detective work, I was able to track down the owner and return the ring to him last week. The owner said that he lost it while herding cattle on horseback and he had the ring only a few months before he lost it. He was overjoyed when he received it in the mail! Thanks for looking!

About a month ago, a hunting buddy dug a 1948 Univ. of Texas BA ring from a back yard demo site. Thre people graduated in 48 with the same name but only one had a BA. Did a bunch of searching and located the son of the owner. The owner, born in 1919, had passed away in 1998. After a couple of phone calls, talking to the widow, leaving numbers and names etc., the son was to call back and never did. The ring band had been cut for a smaller finger and was so fragile and really light weight, it broke near the stone when trying to spread apart the band.
