Default This ring, a first for me? (England)

I'm moving rapidly towards the last of the arable fields I'm able to search before they are seeded with maize.

I have back up fields which are grass but the lack of rain will make the ground very difficult to dig.....but I will try!

The ring as been reported to the appropriate authorities so this means the ring will now start its journey through the legal system. (ring over 300 years old and precious metal)

Thanks for looking............Doug.

Ring just out of the ground.



Silver gilt Post Medieval finger ring AD1550-1650.


Lead tobacco jar lid top left. Lead pot-mend top right.


Roman coins 2nd -4th century.


Big silver coin.


key hole escutcheon.

DANG! That is so freaking cool! AWESOME FIND! Love that ring.

Made me think of the Detectorists show, though. LOL Those guys crack me up.

Happy hunting, and congrats on the awesome discovery! Hope it's worth a mint.

Do you collect these finds or sell them?
If you collect you must have some kind of museum!!

Thank you Ron.

The ring now been officially recorded within the 14 day period as required by law with the PAS officer and will be handed over in May to her.(PAS = Portable Antiques Scheme.)

Anything between 18 to 24 months from start to finish to complete the Treasure process. (England & Wales only)

Thank you, I doubt if the ring will be returned to me/landowner reason being that there is only 2 showing on the PAS data base so it should be purchased by the local museum I would think.

Most of the finds are handed back to the landowner(s) some are donated to the museum, some are purchased by the museum, see a previous post but in all honesty some are just put through the metal recycling program and the £/$'s donated to the local hospice.

Thank you. I live in a very historical part of England but a lot of the fields are not so giving in the historical finds in other parts of England.

Thank you.

I have a legal obligation to report the find, at my time of life I have no wish to try prison food.
