    Re: My Find of the Year: Gold Civil War Ring

    I don't know if this will help date your boat or not. Notice that it states that the swinging stages were not developed until "After" the Civil War. Your boat does not show any stages. Although yours may be stylized by the engraver, it seems that eliminating something as structurally prominent as the swinging stages would not have been the artists choice. It would be like leaving the propeller off a drawing of an aircraft that had one. My guess is, the boat depicted on the ring is pre Civil War.

    I had to pull this thread up again for another look..........
    fantastic!!!!!!!!!!
    When you get into a tight place and everything goes against
    you till it seems you could not hold on a minute longer,
    never give up then for that is just the place and time that
    the tide will turn.

    I looks like the face on the Shroud of Turin....
    The only ones for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the sky.

    Wow Rusty, that sure is an incredible, once in a lifetime find! I recently moved from east Tennessee, found a ton of relics during my stay in Tennessee.

    It looks like there's a face inside the ring? Maybe haunted - trying to tell you something

    Way to Go - thanks for sharing. Hope W&E contacts you.....

    Thats a very interesting find... I'd like to see what the jewler says about its worth... Also I was looking at the ring I'm thinking some sort of picture went in the inside part where it opens up... I'm sure you already knew that... But anyway very cool find...
