A copper alloy undecorated finger ring of uncertain date. The ring is circular in plan and 'D' shaped. It is flat on the inner surface and is convex on the outer edge. All surfaces are undecorated. The ring is undiagnosed so is difficult to date, but it is felt that it is possibly of Medieval to Post Medieval date.
