MEDIEVAL RING HAS BEEN REDISCOVERED

(Fox News) – A British man who
unearthed an estimated 670-year-old medieval
ring in the late 1970s recently rediscovered it hidden in storage boxes — and learned the forgotten treasure is reportedly worth thousands of dollars.

Tom Clark, 81, said he found the ring using a metal detector while he was
treasure-hunting on farmland near Aylesbury, England, in 1979.

He kept the find, placing it in a metal tin and stowing it away in his mother’s
garage. He forgot about the ring for decades — until recently, when Clark
was rummaging through some boxes that he once kept at his mother’s
house.

The ring will be auctioned off on Aug. 27 and is expected to sell for an
estimated $10,000 to $12,000.
