    Rotary seal is now complete!

    A couple weeks ago I posted this rotary seal commenting that I would return to the 1756 home site where I found it and try to find the stone seal.

    That was actually the second one I had found. The first one I found back in June 2016, same site, did not have the bezel ring.

    Well I returned to the site today to burn off a few Thanksgiving calories, I was amazed to find the actual seal and bezel ring to the first one!

    I got home, and after some careful cleaning, was able to remount the bezel ring and seal into the original one I found in June.

    It is a double sided seal with a lion on one side and a bust on the other. With some indirect light, I was able to get these photos.

    Thank goodness the stone was still inside the metal bezel ring, or I never would have found it. I've been metal detecting for years, but this has got to be one of my best finds. Thanks for having a look!

    That is a real compliment coming from you, Stef! I've seen (and drooled over) many of your posts! I never thought about the KG aspect, but might be possible considering the age of the home site.

    Unbelievable!! There must have been some Divine intervention involved. Kinda makes you want to sift the whole place for the other stone, eh? Well done!

    Thanks for the comment and banner vote, VMI. Looking at the finds in your signature block, you're no stranger to saving history yourself! It's really a great feeling.
