Well hello CD. Love seeing your moniker pop up :D

Those darn things are so infuriating to me, cause I think a lot of them are older than they are often recorded as. The one you have looks cast so I believe it’ll be pre 1700. The medieval ones are only recognised as such when they have the V shaped profile on the outer or inner edge, or with file marks.

The PAS guide on rings includes these and is worth a read. You can access it here https://finds.org.uk/counties/findsreco ... des/rings/
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

The patina looks to have some good age to it. Not sure of it's use but clearly some outer wear. :thumbsup:
