Post-medieval gold finger ring consisting of an undecorated D-sectioned hoop without a bezel. On the flat inner face a stamped maker's mark JF. 18th century. Dimensions: External diameter 20.5mm. Internal diameter 19.5mm. Width 2mm. Weight 1.68g. The maker's mark is not identifiable with those published in the standard sources, but the closest comparisons suggest a date after 1713. The ring probably dates to later than 1713 and as such falls outside the provisions of the Treasure Act 1996.
