    The title on your thread is far too modest. We're talking about ultra-hard-to-get colonial period gold in the form of a ring no less! Awesome find. NO-BRAINER BANNER VOTE. It's a privilege to cast my vote for banner on this find. I would research that find and not stop until you get some back story on such an intriguing ring.

    Thanks for all the votes it made the banner! I still have not got a positive ID yet I just know it is very old and rare at this point. The journey to find its origin has begun!

    I think everything I might have said has already been said. But I wanted to add SOMETHING, how about the "Understated" word (WOW)? Added note; Just now I see that Mr.Digger already used "WOW", What else can I come up with?, I don't know, how about Double WOW?

    Wow, amazing ring. It has the look and style to me of a 16th to 17th century gold English/European signet ring although maybe a bit less chunky than normal. I think Crusader had a very similar ring with a lion on it as a banner find!

    I am absolutely excited for you and your find, congratulations. What's going to be even more exciting is the day you see that seal show up on an historic document someday.

    Congrats on the amazing ring, and I agree your title is very modest as I missed it yesterday. That being said the marks with the what looks like a chicken for the second one would indicate French. Getting the ring straightened and a hallmark ID the ring will restore it all its glory. Its one fine example and one of the best pieces of early history posted up, my hat goes off to you on the recovery.

    This one slipped right by me until a friend mentioned it by text. Wow! That's a find of a lifetime my friend! Absolutely incredible!!!! I do believe a colonial gold ring is at the top of my list. I'll be back again and again to take another look.

    Outstanding!!
