St. Petersburg High class ring from 1947 ends up in Australia




At first it was thought it was a Major League Baseball championship ring that had been turned in with a box of lost items at the South Melbourne Market in Australia. But upon closer inspection, it was determined to be a class ring from a school thousands of miles away in Florida. 

Police in Melbourne are now looking for the owner, which St. Petersburg High officials have confirmed to be a graduation ring. It's thought to belong to William C. Yarbrough, who was president of the Drama Club, homeroom vice president and a member of the Chemistry Club, according to a story on the Port Phillip Review website.
