Mods, I had no idea where to put this topic...

I do a fair amount of metal detecting and I found this ring on a old farmhouse that was built back in the mid 1800's. Among other things I found with the ring was change dating around the 1890's.

Here is a photo of the ring

Any Ideas?



Here is the scanner pic at a closer look

Sorry my eyes aren't quite what they used to be and the pic's a little blurry. Around the inner circle....the one with it looks like a crown perhaps? is that a N E S W...as in north south east west?

My camera is not the best.... Let me see if I can get the scanner working to get a better view at the ring. To be honest I can barely see the markings.

Congrats on the great find. I do a little metal detecting myself. I don't recognize the ring but I hope someone else does...very unusual. Is it gold?

All i have to say is don't put in on!!!!

Intresting find i will be following this thread to see if anyone can identify it.

P.S. do not sell it until you know how much it is worth and its story of orgin. I would also do some research off these boards!

There does seem to be some marking, but the picture is to blurry to really make 'em out. If you could sketch 'em out, may make it possible to ID them.
Don't think this is related to a secret society, however, unless there's something specific about the farm, or the place you found them?

Edit: Was on a call, took a while to post my reply.

Is it just me or is this wierd. Why would anything associated with an Aztec ring date back to the 1890's?

Did we have any archaeologists in S.A. at that time?

The Original Poster did not say it dates to the 1890's, only the structure on the property where it was found dates from this time. If you found a Brietling on the Colosseum floor it would not mean that the timepiece is 2,000 years old....

I found the ring at a farm (with coins that dated back to the 1890s)....For all I know that ring could of been made 10 years ago...

It does look old, but so will a 1990 penny thats been in the ground for 8 years

Zippy, if it were solid gold, would a metal detector find it?

There's your answer.

Actually Anonymous, the answer to your question is yes. A metal detector does find gold. Gold is a metal. What was your point?
