Sweet finds! I only have found one piece with hallmarks - Post a clear photo and someone will give you the history of the ring - your terrier may be a lion.

Congrats!

Nice - those small silvers are known as "fish scales"

Haha. I know, such tiny coins. Here in Newfoundland, there are two types of "fish scales" you can dig up. The Canadian five cent piece and the Newfoundland five cent piece, both are the same size! :)
