Ha, made ya look! Well, I did find a little crown for my avatar guy.:laughing7:
I only had a short time to get a little hunt in today, so I hit a park near home that I don't really like because it's more of a dog bathroom than a park. Yuck! But, people still lose stuff there so I put on my smooth soled boots and gave it a crack. Managed $4.71 in clad, a tiny silver crown and a wedding band that came out of the plug looking so nice and shiny that I thought for sure it was going to be gold or platinum, but alas it's 925 silver. Happy to have found it, though!

Any silver is good silver.

Your ring has the ‘IBB’ mark for ‘International Bullion & Metal Brokers’, originally established in London, England in 1974 but now a worldwide conglomerate manufacturer and distributor of precious metal jewellery.

The American business was established in 1977 in Sunrise, Florida. Their first jewellery mark was registered in 1979 with the three letters arranged in a trefoil (clover-leaf) and then as just the three letters in a row from 1999 onwards.

Their items sometimes have additional marks to indicate where they were actually made, such as ‘ITALY’ or ‘CN’ (for China).

Congrats on the silver ring.
Yes the doggie mine fields are just bad.
Smooth soled boots are warranted for sure.

Thanks Red, there are no other marks on this one.

Got me going I thought you had the largest Silver Pre-decimal coin we produced!
Well, I do 'have' one of those, but I didn't find it.
