Imho, I wouldn't do any further truck testing of any kind on those museum quality pieces. I wouldn't do any truck testing period. They're gold and they're high/odd karat, nothing else matters.
Again, just my opinion.

This is TRULY a once in a lifetime find. IT IS LIKELY THAT WE WILL NEVER SEE SOMETHING LIKE THIS FOUND AGAIN DURING OUR LIFETIME.

Congrats sir. Those look like the real deal to me.

One of the most astonishing things I've ever seen uncovered while metal detecting... that is crazy!

Amazing find, incredible rings. But the silver box looks like it could be a snuff box or patch box & with a solid makers mark, depending on the maker it may well eclipse the rings in value & can be repaired.

Probably the most astonishing thing I've seen found with a metal detector. I'm not sure what's the most amazing thing about it; the ring that has the full date, the ring that has 'King George' inscribed in it or the fact that you found 4 gold rings inside a silver case. Unbelievable.

I too am intrigued with the box - would love to see more close pics of the inside, with the hallmark - we should be able to learn something about it ! With the engraving on top and the mark could it be sterling ? or high silver content ?

What we all have dreamed of. Your the one who the dream came true! Awesome to hear!

Beyond fantastic find. Those are very special rings. Historically significant.

WOW! Great find. I believe it would be King George, and not only are the rings from over the pond but so is the silver container. Great find!!!!

That would have been declared treasure across the pond,
hoping someone will come forth with Makers Mark ID`s

Super fantastic find you made. I am so glad that your detector was at the right place and time to save this little treasure from another day below ground.The only thing that would make it better would be if it were me and my detector.Huge congrats.

With the dates of 1730's, I'm thinking this cache may have been placed around the time of the Revolution . Unless the box can be dated to a later period. People going off to war certainly had motive to bury the valuables . News of hostile forces approaching would also provide the motivation to bury a cache like this .
