    925 in tiny numerals. Couldn't get a good picture.
    My gram scales are at home. I will weigh it on Sunday evening.

    Hehe.. Everytime I find a ring I clean it then show my mom. She's amazed at the amount of rings I find. She always tries them on. Today the ring got stuck on her finger and she needed dish soap to remove it :hilarious:

    I think what you have is proof that another civilization was in the NY area even before the Vikings and Europeans. 925 AD.

    I think Queen Boadicea of Iceni toured the island in AD61, if I'm not mistaken.;)

    That ring is high-quality Sterling silver at 92.5% silver & 7.5% copper. It's the prize of that hunt.
