    Qrter Stater Field - Day 5...16th C Gold Ring!!!

    Beautiful day again & after our moderate success yesterday we were both ready for a bit of a slog, it seemed like payback time was due :P
    We were nearly right because at the 2 hour point (total day was 3.5 hours), we only had 1 Roman coin & a few buttons. Once again the difficult field just blow me away with a Gold Ring that looked so Gold it had to be real old.....Although in the field I couldn't be sure it wasn't Georgian or Victorian so got the best surprise researching tonight

    Other finds of the day:
    Barrel Tap Key
    1897 Sixpence
    Some good Buttons
    1 Lead Token

    This is what I think the Gold Ring is:
    Man's high grade Gold (20kt+) Signet Ring
    16th Century (maybe 17th)
    The Heraldic image of the Rampant Lion derived from the 'Lion of Judah' which has close ties with Nobility, so whoever wore this ring was at least a Lord of the Manor. Its been used all across Europe & closely associated with Scotland.
    The closest match I could find was in the Victoria & Albert Museum:
    http://collections.vam.ac.uk/item/O1...-ring/?print=1
    Although mine is a different shape I have researched many other similar Octagon Gold Rings from the 16th-17th Century
    This will shortly be making its way to the British Museum, so might get a full answer in 12 months+

    I have never had such an amazing ring in all my detecting years, I hope this continues, but I think I have done in the rest of the year
    UPDATE:

    It's very unusual for me to sell ANYTHING I find. However, on some very rare occasions I can't afford to keep a find. This has only happened 1 other time in my detecting career, other than this one.

    The British Museum handed back the Ring & valued it at £2500.

    Today it was in Auction & achieved £4200!

    So after costs (including straighting it), the farmer & I will recieve £1600 each. My best windfall ever, as my last object was £1150 each.

    Brought by a US bidder (I think).

    Oh Boy ! What a beauty !

    I love that old craftsmanship.

    A field that gives up multiple Silver is a good one, one that gives up multiple Golds is wicked.

    Agreed, Banner vote in.

    I’ve mentioned before that my new book can be a great holiday gift idea for a family member or friend, and I’ve noticed recently that many are purchasing a copy for that very purpose. However, time is running short, so anyone interested in taking advantage of this opportunity should do so in the next week to ensure delivery prior to Christmas. Ordering your copy is as simple as clicking on the PayPal link at the bottom and sending $59 + $5 shipping. If you’d like your copy to be personalized by the author, or just signed, please indicate so in the PayPal notes section. Anyone not familiar with this comprehensive publication can check out the info provided below for a detailed description of its contents plus comments from buyers. Thanks for your support.

    Many of you were aware that I've been working on a major book project for close to 3 years, and now it's finally been published. This book, entitled “DISCOVERING VIRGINIA’S COLONIAL ARTIFACTS — AComprehensive Guide to Recovery, Identification and Preservation”, is 400 pagesin length and packed with nearly 1000 color photos of 16th thru 18th centuryartifacts I’ve personally recovered over the last 20+ years along with manyquality post-colonial finds that randomly turn up at early sites. I alsobelieve it’s the first of its kind in this subject matter area to hit themarket. But don’t be misled by the title as this is a must-have not only forcolonial enthusiasts, but for all novice and veteran relic hunters as well as itcovers a wide range of pertinent topics including research methods, how tosecure permission, reading and searching sites, finding and excavating trashpits, artifact cleaning, preservation, documentation and display, ethics, andmuch more. It basically doubles as both a “how-to” manual as well as a colonialartifact “encyclopedia” covering all major categories to help more preciselyidentify and date your finds. It also contains 40 sidebars scattered throughoutthe book that expand on various topics of interest plus a listing of “SuggestedResources” at the end of most chapters that identifies other publications,websites, technical papers, etc, for additional reading if desired. The bookalso includes 9 appendices to provide supplemental material. It’s alsoprinted in all color on high quality, glossy stock and is contained within aheavy and attractive hardcover.
    If you're interested in ordering a copy you can click on the PayPal link below. It's cost is $59 + $5 for shipping within the continental US.
