Default Most Valuable Find...yet.

CORRECTION GUYS!! I don't know how I mixed up the pictures on this but I did. It's right now. Sorry

Three weeks ago we made a day-trip to Hilton Head Island for some sun and detecting. This thing sounded like a Matchbox car rattling in the scoop! Could not believe my eyes. Efforts to reunite it with it's owner have proven fruitless todate. We'll see.

What kind of ring is it? Is it a football championship ring?

It could also be a salesman's ring. I've seen similar rings for Chrysler, insurance and real estate sales.

Guys;
this is indeed a salesman's ring. Chevrolet Dealership Group. Contacted the ring's manufacturer and the Dealer's Corporate HQ with the owner's name but they were unable to generate even a valid phone # much less an address.
It appraised at $4500.

Hey DJS;
I am no longer actively looking for it's owner. I know his name (courtesy ring manufacturer) but have no idea on how to proceed further searching for him. As I said, the employer who awarded him the ring cannot find so much as a valid phone # so I have it in a safe-deposit box until I either find a new search angle or decide FINDERS KEEPERS!
Jim

You might try people search dot com. You can search by state I think. It might be worth a try.
