Default State Champion Ring

I found a state football championship ring today. It should not be to hard to find the owner as his name is on the inside. I wish someone would return my class ring but it is at the bottom of a quarry.

The ring is the usual 10kt gold and had a VDI 65 to 67. I found it next to a basketball court in a city park using my 8" excelerator coil.

Beautiful ring! I'd love to see the owner's reaction when you return it.

Nice Honker!

If you are able to return it, you'll get 10 Karma points. :P

That's a nice ring. Maybe you will get a finders fee when you return it. Good luck.

At this point the owners aren't making much of an effort to get the ring, so I don't think there will be a finders fee. The father called today and said the school had called. He said he would pick it up today and it is 9:15 and he hasn't arrived or called. If my kid had lost it I would have rushed over. In good faith I couldn't have kept it or sold it as scrap, Oh well.

That may be true Rob, the important thing to remember is the effort to return the ring. You will have more comfort in trying than the owner of the ring, if he get's it back. Nice jesture on your part.

Like Rhubarb said, your jesture is what's important. As long as you feel what you do is right. What happens on their end it up to them.

If that had been my ring I would have been jumping for joy!!!
My class ring was stolen and sold to a pawn shop and thus I will never see it again!

Hugs,
Nancy

My father passed away when I was a young child and one of the few things he left me was his high school class ring. When I was a teenager someone broke into my mothers home and stole the ring. To this day I hold out hope that it was dropped by the thief and some good hearted md'er digs it up somewhere and seeks my family out to return it. I know I would certainly do the same. I'm giving you 1000 Atta Boy points for your efforts.
