1966 High School Class Ring Found and Returned to Owner

A few months ago I and a detecting friend were using our E-TRACs at an old school playground about 120 miles from home when I got this interesting and strong signal. The thought came to me, "10,000 pull tabs for each gold ring" and when I got to it, BINGO, this long lost class ring popped out! After nearly three months of research and many contacts, I was finally successful in returning the 1966 class ring to its rightful owner. Priceless!!!
