    I found a copper ring a few weeks back. Stamped "copper" on the inside. People have told be that its worn for arthritis therapy. Don't really know, but cool find anyways

    Re: copper band maybe?

    Don't discount that copper ring as being a medical device so fast! In an effort to be more "Civilized" the Cherokee people started wearing wedding bands out of copper. I have one that was found on the "Trail of Tears" segment that left the NW Georgia area. I also just reciently found the one below. It is brass and very small for a man. Probably like a size seven. I have average size hands for a man and it doesn't even fit on my pinky! The hole is just a shade smaller than a dime.

    No, there is no markings... it is shiny on some of the inside, like a thin gold plating....could this be an expensive cigar band... just a wild guess.

    You know, after looking closer at it, the bends are to purposeful to have been ran over or stepped on. I believe it was made that way. Maybe it is off of a belt or purse or something like that.
