    Congrats on all of the nice finds DND. The sword guard is something special.

    I'm a coin guy, so that old seated coin is really sweet looking to me.

    Best of luck to you sir!

If you ever get the opportunity to meet and or hunt with Glenn you'll be in for a treat. Thanks Again
    Thanks for the compliments Allen. Lots of research+door knocking/networking+hard work with the detector can pay off for anyone. And a little luck never hurts

    I know-I guess that would be a quarter dime? Or a two and a half cent piece?

    After reading your comments I did some more cleaning of the ring which revealed the pattern on either side and posted a couple of extra pictures. I agree that it is most likely 18th century, especially since all of the relics and coins found at that site have been from the 1700s and early 1800s, but mostly the latter. Thanks for the input-I am definitely stoked to have found a colonial era ring as I know they are fairly scarce.

    I am in agreement with Scrappy on age of ring. Patina and design just scream 18th century on that. Sword guard is a nice find as well.

    Congrats again Glenn, that sword guard is killer- I agree with the ID 18th century French court sword. Ring is icing on the cake

    Awesome finds,and it appears to me that that half dime was mint condition when cut in half so it was worth two and one half cents then?
