    The treasure of a ‘traitor’: Amateur metal detectorist unearths 350-year-old ring

    An immaculately preserved gold ring from the 17th century has been found by an amateur metal detectorist in Scotland.

    The signet ring is in perfect condition and is believed to be worth up to £10,000 and previously belonged to a King's courtier who was wrongly executed for treason.

    It belonged to Edward Colman, who worked for King Charles II before being hung, drawn and quartered in 1678.

    Wasn't the school teacher's first gold, she found a gold coin previously...!
