    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.
