    Colonial Watering hole deja vu ...ANOTHER EARLY SILVER RING...AND CHECK THIS ONE OUT!

    Well I am a sad but dedicated soul. It was cold and windy (30mph sustained winds) this morning, but the water temps are warmer then the air, so I said "lets roll."

    It was downright miserable and I probably was second guessing myself every minute until I made it back to the same hole that produced the other early silver ring and cob that I recovered earlier this week. As soon as I declined down into it I heard an iffy signal and after a few minutes of work on the bottom, up surfaced this beauty! Another early silver hand-etched ring! This one has overlapping hearts and similar etchings as the one that I recovered earlier in the week. I have to believe they belonged to the same person as they were 5' apart and are very similar in design and construction. I did have my first ring verified that it was no newer than 1700s and most likely 1600's with a chance of 1400-1500s. One person even said earlier than that. I was stunned to say the least and my hearts "pun intended" warmed my body! ha ha

    After that excitement, the cold set back in and a few additional finds surfaced before I finally called it quits...it even snowed on me...I mean really?

    Other finds include a civil war eagle cuff button, a colonial flat button another civil war three ringer and a handful of other 1700-1600's lead musket balls and shot. This site had a small amount of civil war activity which is why a random CW find is made from time to time, but the vast majority is 1700s-1600s with the mean date being the late 1600's.

    I thought I had another cob, but it turned out to be a piece of pewter that read fairly high.

    I am stoked on the rings as they might be my best finds of the summer and a pair that will display nice together!

    HH

    Absolutely fantastic Dan! I like this one even more than the first one and I didn't think that was possible. I also ventured out for a few hours in the snow, rain and FREEZING wind, but only came back with 1 rose head, 1 pewter button and 1 musket ball... It was a bust... I had plans to sift, but the ground was too wet.

    I voted for the last one, and I'm voting for this one. I see these rings as colonial art, engraved into silver by hand and completely unique. I'm sure they have quite a story to tell as well. Just top notch finds to me man. Now go find the matching bracelet.

    That's crazy to find a companion ring, especially so close to where the other one was found. Had to have been lost by the same person. That's 2 amazing finds man, and hopefully that second one with its unique features can help you date these. Great job too on fighting the elements to make these incredible recoveries.
    MY BOOK HAS SOLD OUT OF ALL 1200+ COPIES IN LESS THAN 4 MONTHS. NO 2ND PRINTING IS ANTICIPATED AT THIS TIME. THANKS TO ALL WHO MADE THIS PROJECT A SUCCESS.
