Silver or gold

Post by j4ck » Sun Nov 10, 2019 8:44 pm

Evening folks
New permission in Cheltenham
Had a good feeling on today’s new permission with two good mates
Electric fences everywhere but we carried on with the Chinese torture 😂
Lots of buttons and lead and then a tiny baby silver ring came up nice find for doughnut man
Then on a very wet patch this other ring popped up
Thinking it was tat just bagged it and moved on
After cleaning found very faint hallmarks so can anyone help me on this one ?? Studied the internet for a while and nothing comes close 🤔
