A 90-year-old man who accidentally dropped his commemorative high school ring down a lavatory in 1938 has been reunited with it after 73 years.

 

The ring was found 200 miles away in a sewer by a sanitation worker who happened to have gone to the same school and recognised it.

Jesse Mattos had dropped the ring, which bore his initials JTM and the year of his graduation, into a toilet in a butcher's shop where he was working when a high school student in Mount Shasta, California.

Tony Congi, 52, a sanitation woker who graduated from the same high school in 1976, found the piece of jewelley in the sewer system and recognised it immediately.

He had the ring cleaned and then looked at the 1938 year book, discovering there was only one person with the initials on it. He returned the ring to Mr Mattos and described their meeting as "neater than heck." Mr Mattos told the Vallejo Times-Herald: "Something like this ring thing was a real booster for me. I felt like I was a lot younger again."
