Is this your ring?
Bob Kenslow of Coweta, Okla., has a piece of UNT history, and he wants to return it to its rightful owner.
In the early '70s, in the snow outside a ski resort in Steamboat Springs, Colo., Kenslow found a North Texas class ring. Unable to find the ring's owner immediately, he decided to store it in his car's glove box for safe keeping.
However, Kenslow soon forgot about the ring. Several years passed before he came across it while cleaning out the glove box following the sale of his car. Unsure of what to do with the ring, Kenslow simply moved it into the glove box of his new car. A few years later, when Kenslow bought another new car, he repeated the process. The ring found a new glove box home with each vehicle Kenslow acquired over the years.
But recently, when Kenslow moved into a new house, one of his first priorities was to put the ring in a different safe spot — his bedroom dresser. Now he's trying to track down the ring's owner.
"The year is worn but appears to be '56, '58 or '59," Kenslow says. "It has the initial 'D' in diamonds on the setting."
