Posy ring qualifies as treasure

Post by The caretaker » Tue Nov 13, 2018 1:32 pm

Just heard back from my F.L.O today after 3 weeks.
The British museum has dated my posy 1600-1650 the inscription says I hope in time.
So have qaulfied it has treasure. It's great news as the last ring
I handed in they said it was a 18th century copy of a medieval ring.
My F.L.O said he would forward all paper work.
(Qaulfies not declared)
Found this on my permission in county Durham.

What a beautiful find - makes you wonder about its back story - "I hope in time" - must have been a love story to go with that message on a gold ring.

Just lovely, thanks for sharing with us!
