1947 Hackettstown High School class ring
After my fathers passing several years ago I have been wearing his 1947 class ring. It is very worn to the point that I cannot see what used to be in the center of the ring. Anyone out there have a ring of the same year that is not worn? I would love to see a picture of it.
Mine is worn also but visible enough to appear to be a"torch' over top of a "winged foot"
This looked familiar and a look at the "Oracle" shows a logo imprint on the front as same !!
Greg. I checked a few years ago in the Hackettstown High library. They had the 1947 year book but there was no picture of the class ring. The librarian had no other suggestions.
20 years ago (possibly longer) there was a group similar to the Hackettstown BID. I don't remember the name of it. WRNJ reported a story about a man living in a distant state who bought a bag of peat moss from his local K-Mart. Upon opening it, he found a Hackettstown High School class ring from many years earlier. He contacted someone from Hackettstown and was referred to this BID type group. The story was that he was going to send them the ring. There were initials engraved in the ring and the plan was they were going to try to locate a family member who would know who owned the ring, since in all likelihood the original owner was no longer living and the class was relatively small. I never heard any more on this story. I contacted WRNJ and they knew nothing about it. I also contacted the group and never got a reply. Does anyone remember hearing this story or know what the outcome was?
I believe the ring is in the town museum.
Thank you USS Nathan James. I will check with them to see if it's the same story that I heard.
