    I apologize to the O.P. for not noticing this Thread earlier! I just didn't get excited over a title saying "Gold Ring With Eagle On It".

    Let me say what an amazing and likely, extremely rare find you have found. I am sure that it is an Eagle depicted on the ring and the Eagle is holding an Olive Branch in it's mouth. It is likely a Wax Seal Ring of significance. I would not be surprised to find out that the ring has a direct relationship to the founding of this Country and was owned and may have been used by someone that had a hand in the forming of this Nation. Who knows, they may have even signed the Declaration of Independence. Besides Heritage Auctions, I would recommend contacting the Smithsonian Museum and any authorities on Revolutionary War period artifacts.

    Just saw this. WOW what a find. Watched the video and saw the hallmarks. Silver gets the hallmark award for centuries but early USA Gold hallmarks are kind of rare I think? I have never seen these marks thats for sure! Awesome. Hope someone chimes in or Heritage answers. Im very curious.

    I agree, this is definitely significant and if Heritage can't help you I would definitely pursue other avenues above.

    The problem with the Smith is getting their attention. If it is not significant they will not respond or take a year to do it. Heritage as mentioned above is Lickety split either way. The experts on the Antiques roadshow. (The list is on the roadshow site) are also genuinely excited to do research and share opinions.

    I dont know if this is significant or not (and crusader has already posted a similar crest on a livery button) but it looks like a prominent early Virginia family by the name of tazewell had a coat of arms in the 18th century crested by an eagles head facing left (as the eagle would in a seal impression left by this ring) with a branch in its beak.

    Link to info here:

    https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=...0crest&f=false

    Might be worth a bit of further research.

    Congrats on the stunning find! Really interested to hear how the ID goes. If it was somehow attributed to a founding father or other person of significance as huntsman53 pointed out I wouldn't be surprised!

    Fingers cross George Washington was into chickens!
