PA Teen With Metal Detector Finds 1962 Class Ring

LEMONT, Pa. (AP) – A Pennsylvania teenager with a metal detector has stumbled across a 1962 high school class ring and returned it to its owner.

The Centre Daily Times reports 19-year-old Robert Nese says he was searching the ground behind Lemont Elementary School when he made the discovery recently. He found the gold State College Area High School ring buried 8 inches below the grass, with the initials DLT inside the band.

He tracked down a yearbook and found two people with matching initials. On his second try, he found that Donna Tressler had lost the ring playing softball 52 years ago.
