Very good! Found a class ring last year, found the owner and he had lost it 55 years ago.
I found his initials matched a name in a yearbook pic. Found the name then found different addresses he had and phones that were all not working. For kicks I popped a letter in the mail to last known address asking if he lost anything of value in the park. 1 week later I got a call.

Best of luck!

Congrats, I have access to high school yearbooks so I could help you with getting the owner's name. Let me know if you want me to look it up?
Found the owner through social media. Thank you for the offer

I know what you mean having been harassed for trying to return a ring. Although most folks are thankful and have fun with it, two didn't believe it and harbor a lot of mistrust in strangers.

Swimmer, it's easier to just mail it, I remember when I use to show people what I found on the beach, as I was detecting and they would say, I lost that yesterday, and I'd say I dug it last week at another beach
