Guaranteed these bronze rings were made in ancient times? No, but most likely since not one of these rings is perfectly round and each has a flaw of one kind or another. Hopefully not made by some little Chinaman in his
(as I've been told). The second ring on the left in Lot #3 is silver and was worn by someone of importance, most likely a Legion Officer. I bought these rings in 'cleaned' condition in a size which fits my little finger enabling me to wear them.
I realize once cleaned their value is zilch. No matter as I wear one each and every single day and have been for many years. How much closer can you get to those ancient times and to the man
who last wore one of these rings? In those days Roman
Legionaires, Celt Warriors and other tribesmen lived for 'Wine, Women & Song'; their lives oft curtailed in battle.
Tell me, are you going to carry an ancient Roman
coin in your pocket for years? Better to wear a ring on your finger. No?
* Not sure if your program can do this but if you double click on each of the pics you can see a real close-up of the rings. Notice that there is still
a hint of patina
on some of them.
