    Photos of 1917 Class Ring

    I have had several of you ask me to post a photos of the ring I posted in the thread Silver Fever after I got it cleaned up. I have been able to get most of the mineral deposits off the ring and got most of the bent up parts straightened, I maybe able to get it to clean up a little more in time.

    Thanks again for all of your interest in the ring.

    Thanks everybody, I was very surprised and happy when I saw the 1917on it that night. And after some gentle scrubbing after soaking it all night in some jewelry cleaner and some slow bending to get it back in some kind of shape I am very proud of it. It's Bonus Deer Season here in Oklahoma right now and I am just getting back to look at your comments and was very shocked and happy to see it scrolling across the banner.

    Thanks again,

    Dave
