    Such a dream find! Does your Country have any legal rights over you and the land owner? Was it in a farm field?

    Yes terry it as been classed as treasure [ all finders of gold and silver objects, and groups of coins from the same finds, over 300 years old, have a legal obligation to report such items under the Treasure Act 1996] and York museum would like it. now it gets valued and me and the farmer split the money 50/50..I did get it valued before handing it over to the British museum it was valued at 2k..

    I love that ring. Very beautiful indeed.

    I'd have a real hard time giving it up to the Govt.

    Thanks for sharing such an awesome find.
