    Someone brought this ring by today and it has this small coin inside of it but I have no idea what it is. Thought someone on here might know.

    Yes, a Judaean "widow's mite" (bronze prutah of John Hyrcanus, 1st century BC). Looks genuine. Not rare but popular because of the biblical connection.
