This time the ring is definitely gold... And my first silver sixpence

Post by LloydF » Sat Oct 12, 2019 9:33 pm

Quick hunt after work - 3 hours on a new-ish field. After 2 hours of nothing interesting I considered moving to a different field, decided it wasn't worth it for 1 hour and I'd stay put, next hole and this popped out........

definitely gold this time (9ct), I think the date letter is O but can't work out the assay mark, if anyone can make it out that'd be amazing ๐Ÿ‘

Took 5 more steps and got my first silver coin...

So overall a great evening, ring is 47g

I'm thinking 300quid for the Farmer and a new simplex for myself ๐Ÿคฃ

That ring is a stonker. ::g It's quite modern so better make sure that the farmer doesn't know who lost it before you spend the spoils though! :D

I've messaged him already, definitely one of the biggest rings I've ever seen, lots of the travelling community frequent the area, so I assume it's been dropped during some hare coursing. Karma I guess.

That might account for the sketchy Hall marks. Travellers tend to buy all sorts at their fares, and they love big & bold.
You should see the one Iโ€™ve got :D it weighs 22 grams ::g hall marks in mine are just as sketchy.

Fantastic find. Hope you get the price ::g

Heaviest ring I`ve seen on here at 47gm.
Did that display around 85 on the 400i ?
Great find ::g

Really is one of the biggest rings I've ever seen, the picture doesn't do it justice, yep 88-90 on the 400i. I'm going to get a jeweller to have a look just to make sure it's legit and then I think I'll pop it on a well known auction site rather than for gold scrap.

I just couldn't believe it was the first hole after I very nearly moved to a different field.

Yeah there are quite a few similar online, most of them are around the 25-30g mark at that price. My plan is to start the auction at the scrap price and anything else is a bonus. ๐Ÿ‘
