What Will You Find?

Lost and Found

I have attached a photo of a 1959 class ring from Girard College in Philadelphia. I found the ring in an old yard in mid February and was able to locate the owner within two days. He lives in the Seattle area. The house was part of the old Navy base in Sanford, Florida. Don, the owner, lost the ring in 1962 while stationed at the base. After 48 years in the ground, the ring was still beautiful. I returned the ring to Don in March. I'm sure this is now a big conversation piece with his family.
