    Gold Posy Ring

    This is my best find so far and one I might have trouble beating

    I found it recently at my Abbey site, but it's been away being researched for a while so I couldn't post!

    It was just sitting on the top in a clump of mud and gave a signal I would have ignored as iron if I hadn't seen it

    At first I thought it was just a modern wedding band with an inscription, but after looking at the style of writing and the
    spelling I wanted to give Crusader a call before I scrapped it

    He told me it definately needed looking at as it could be very early

    Research shows it is a 23 or 24 carat gold Poesy ring weighing 9.6 grammes, made between 1710 and 1750

    Inscription reads: God hath made thee my choyce, in him and thee i doe rejoyce.

    Re: Gold Posy Ring

    I did that once. Got a beep, looked down and there's a barber dime. Sure wish it had been a gold posy ring.

    That's an awesome ring Shaun. I'd love to see the pic of Crusader drooling over that one.

    Congrats on making banner.
