The one thing I had not found yet that was bugging me was a class ring. I always wanted to find a class ring and reunite it with its owner.. it looks like that’s going to happen! I just dug this out of the woods in the Santa Cruz mountains..

The university, program they were enrolled in, graduation year and full name of the person is on the ring. Tracking them down only took a few minutes. I have sent them a message and can’t wait to hear back from them! After the platinum wedding band I returned a couple of years ago, this will be my second owner reunification.

    It's really cool that you reunite these items to their owners.
    Most people are more interested in monetary gain.
    Good karma my friend!!

    Wow, great story. And very nice that you gave it back instead of take the financial gain.

    @kiyote I commend you for returning the ring. I have located lost items in the past and returned them. Be safe. Peace Roy

    Did they tell you thanks. That's hard for some to do

    He definitely did. He’s in the middle of renovating a motel and told me as soon as it was finished that I could come and stay for a few nights for free to check it out.

    What a great person you are for returning someone else's lost treasure.
    I'm sure the sentimental value for this man far exceeded the price of gold.

    Great story. See if the local newspaper or television would run a story. Great press for detectorists.
    Your parents did a good job by the way.
    Best wishes.
