Hello again
I’ve just found a copper alloy (?) finger ring without its stone sadly. I’ve had a lot 17th and 18 century items out of the field in that area.
I put it up on the Sassy Searcher FB group and the consensus there was it could be Tudor.
Does anyone agree or have any clue as to its date?
Grateful thanks again for any input.

I would say late medieval to early Tudor, or around that period going on the style :thumbsup: .....but could be a later copy too, one for the FLO

a couple to compare with

Thank you Steve. I’m fortunate enough to have Helen Geake as my FLO so I will be in touch with her definitely. And thank you for the links 👍🏻

Don't think Steve's far off the mark there. Not far at all :thumbsup:

Helen would be my FLO too if I detected in the county I live in, but that's the beauty of S. Norfolk - you're on the border of two cracking counties finds-wise, and never far from history.

Great little find, that :thumbsup:

Thanks Figgis, I’m fairly near to metal detecting and turning up all sorts of fabulous finds thanks to the area I live in, along side a very productive back garden and a very generous farmer whose land our property backs on to 🙀😀

Cute ring! I’d be very happy with that :thumbsup:

Thank you Oxgirl! My joy is somewhat ruined as I dug up a Stephen/Henry hammered today not far from the ring and I’ve only gone and lost it <contemplating sending the cat and dog for X-rays to see if they’ve eaten it>

Noooooooooooo :cry:

Did you loose it at home or before you got home? I’ve done that twice - once with a cut quarter and once a piece of a sestertius. I now put them straight into another container after washing instead of leaving them down somewhere and forgetting where :oops: Hope you find yours!

Thank you ❤️. I lost it after I’d got home, cleaned it vaguely, taken pics of it , decided pictures were crap, so tried to take better pics, husband called me in to eat and it was gone when I went back to retrieve it.
Lesson learnt the very very hard way. Pics attached of said coin if you know what it is/was 😢

Thanks so much for the ID. I’m don’t know if knowing that makes it better or worse, it would have been my first Tealby😢. I guess it’s a case of “better to have loved and lost than never loved at all etc” 😂
