Default 10k gold class ring from 1962

Found a gold ring from 1962. Looks like the rock fell off.

Thanks. It was a surprise find. I was silver hunting and decided to dig this low tone for the hell of it. 😂

Great find. No school name? That's kinda odd. Your post makes me wonder how much gold I pass over due to passing on the low tones...

Congrats on the cool find. They didn't have rocks back in 1962. Most likely an school emblem that came off.

Slick find! Love those class rings. They're so much heavier than the little women's rings that I've been finding...
