We have missing rings

We are looking for VHS class rings for classes 1963, 1965, 1975, 1976 and 1977. If we are able to photograph rings from these years, it would result in a continuous string of rings from 1957 to 1978. Of course, any ring from any year is very much appreciated. If you have a ring from these years, please contact us at venicememories@yahoo.com
