    The ring, looks silver. Only has one hallmark 825. Any idea on the age of it?

    One side is a 1645 common wealth shilling but the other has text typed on it?

    Thank you

    I would guess the ring is from the 70's, maybe Italian silver?

    The foot looks like a modern child's toy.
    825 means 82.5% silver.
    The writing on the coin was most likely a counterstamp. Used as either an advertising tool or as a souvenir (ie, engrave your name.)

    Hello, thank you both for your thoughts

    Not sure about the foot being a child's toy as it is a severed foot with painted blood on.

    I'll try to remove the glue like substance of the back of the coin to find out the full engraved text on the back of the coin.
