Default First gold I get to keep

I have found other rings before but all had inscriptions and were returned. This one is 14k and no initials. Mine to keep!! It was found on the edge of an athletic field, 3 inches deep. Rang up as a solid 65 on my ATP

Great find! So nice that you can keep this one, although it's commendable of you to return those that you could.

Does it have a sideways W?

Looks like a J Woods/artcarved (worth more than melt) ring to me...

Awesome, congrats!

The markings are 14k, copyright symbol, F and a figure that looks like a G with the top at an angle not a curve.

Thats it. Great ID. Details are sharper on the one I found. Must have been lost early. Thanks all for the comments.
