Metal detectorist refinds medieval gold ring

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A metal detectorist who discarded a gold ring in his garage for 40 years after a museum told him it was worthless has discovered its real value is £10,000.

Tom Clark, 81, dug up the buried treasure while scanning an area of farmland near Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, in 1979, then put it inside a metal tin and forgot about it.

But the retired leather craftsman came across the rare seal ring eight years ago while sorting through items from his mother's house after she passed away.

He got the item valued and was astonished to discover that it was actually a 670-year-old medieval artefact dating back to 1350.
