Had a few hours out yesterday on a local pasture permission. Had this silver ring up on my second signal of the session, all downhill from there on.

Have had look through my finds books and the PAS and can't find anything similar.
No hallmarks present but they could be on the missing part, but four what look like deliberate oval marks on reverse.
Can't find anything with a similar shoulder design either.

Wondered if anyone has found or seen anything similar ? and if so any ideas on date?
Thanks in advance,
Reiver.

Maybe a fob seal? Looks more like a ring though.

The shoulder design is a common Roman one so maybe the maker copied that? Love to know what sat on top of it :thumbsup:

This is a strange one
At first i thought the same as easy and a fob seal, and it was attached through the hole
Mystery solved!....Not !

Whatever was attached through that hole would be annoying as heck to the finger the ring was worn on
So the hole makes no sense to me for a ring
Although, maybe it was a fob seal and attached around the persons neck on cord or summat
Maybe it was a ring with special meaning that they had adapted into a seal?

Love a good mystery

A mystery it is,
I'm pretty sure it's a finger ring, but dating it has me stumped.
Thanks for looking and your interest.
