I have tried to get a clearer pic, but not working out. the pic with the expanded view is the back..(mount) the other two the Top..the piece seems to show indentations all the way around (mounting for jewels?) and then rings till the center look like a place for a center piece would have set..... yes I think it was a ring broken off the actual ring part and this is the setting... Of course I probably have convinced myself of that. LOL

Did you clean it? What color when you recovered it?

I didn't want to ruin the metal so no test for silver... I think it's brass or copper? maybe

Take a bunch of pictures till you get one that is clear. It is just a blurry object now. When did you find it?

Ok i am heading out to go detecting right now... So I will take the advice and I will post repost some pics when I can soon. And hopefully I will get some clear shots because there is a lot of detail I haven't been able to capture on the camera. Happy hunting see yall soon.

I'm seeing the shades of green. Could it be paint or corrosion?
