Hi, I hope you can help me. I found this ring in a field while out walking and im trying to find out when and who made it.
Sadly Im 90% sure its junk because it looks Ugly and very poorly made, but id like to make sure before i throw it away or sell it.
So far i’ve figured out its Solid silver, british and assayed in London but im having trouble with the date letters case and font.
From my untrained eye it looks like it could be an upper case S? with a square border with chopped corners. From info here- http://www.bhi.co.uk/hints/hmarks.htm it says the font would either be Script, Serif or Sans Serif. With that border style that means it was made in 1953 or 1992, dependant on the font. Would that be right?
As for the Makers mark, its too faint to get a photo of and has some silver spilt over the edge but with a magnifying glass i could make out MH or perhaps M.H. but I havent been able to find any British Makers with that seal yet.
Only one MH I could find, a (Michael Homer [Dublin] ) 18th c./2nd half. But that doesnt seem to match with what i could find out about the date letter.
Any light you could cast on my find would be greatly appreasiated.
Yours thankfully Ron.
