    50'/60's friendship ring probably plated at one time.

    He is one that is listed as 'vintage'. I always assume that means 'not older than me'.

    This one on Pinterest says 1880's, but offers no proof. That's what I hate about Pinterest...

    I found one nearly identical to that in a ghost town from the 1860-70s. Will post pics if I can find where I put it

    Are you suggesting that because it was found at the Ghost Site no-one had visited it since the 1870s & therefore the ring must be that date?
