THE STORY OF THIS RING. My mother inherited a part of his collection when he passed away in 2000 and sadly when my mother passed away in 2014 she left them to me. I will be auctioning off the entire collection in the next week so please check back. Even amongst a marvelous collection this ring was something special. This was one of the first pieces he bought. It turned out to be by far the oldest and it was definitely his favorite. He wore it everyday for almost 50 years. Everything is authentic Old Pawn and has been in my family since the 1960's a couple are first phase/early transition, but nothing compares to this genuine historic relic.
