    How old is it?

    Found this antique gold signet ring years ago. Itís at least 16k and was dug up at a 1850ís settlement. No antique jewelry shop around where I live can give me info on what the age is. No markings other than the initials RHJ on top.

    I think it’s older than that. It’s not symmetrical like a ring from the 1800 or 1900’s.

    That does look really old, like the kind of jewelry the guys in the UK dig up.

    Any day of hunting, whether good or bad is better than not hunting at all
