It’s been 43 years since Kevin Kinney last saw his high school class ring. But thanks to a woman in Australia, he now has it back.
Kinney last saw the ring in 1977 when he was studying abroad and traveling through Europe by train.
"(I) left the compartment that I was sitting in, was walking down the train, and looked down at my hand, and I'm like, 'Oh my gosh, my ring is gone,'" Kinney said. "Every year for the last 45 years, at least once a year, I know I've said, 'I wonder what happened to that ring.'"
That's why he was shocked to receive an email from the woman who had his ring in November 2019. The woman's grandfather, who was backpacking across Europe as a young man, found the ring when he bought a pair of gloves in Athens in the 1980s.
"Pretty big world, but boy, it's pretty small, too, isn't it?" Kinney said.
