HAMPTON, Iowa (AP) - A Hampton man who’s been married for nearly 70 years has lost his wedding ring.

Alvin Andersen says he thinks he lost it when taking off his gloves in Mason City a couple of weeks ago while at Wal-Mart, Hy-Vee or KFC. Andersen says he’s worn it faithfully since marrying his wife, Maurine, on Sept. 2, 1945, in Clarion.

He says the ring has more sentimental value than monetary worth. He says his wife wants him to buy a replacement if the old one doesn’t turn up.

But Alvin Andersen says that at the age of 93 he probably doesn’t need one too badly.
