Silver ring found in Sleaford declared treasure.

A ring found in a farmer's field in Lincolnshire by a boy using a metal detector has been declared as treasure. Philip Ingram-Jannetta, 15, of Leasingham, Sleaford, was with a friend when he came across the silver-gilt finger-ring, believed to date from the late 16th or early 17th Century. The ring is thought to have belonged to a member of the Shaw family, who were wealthy landowners in the county. The Collection Museum in Lincoln has expressed an interest in buying it. Lincoln district coroner Stuart Fisher declared the ring as treasure. It is currently being valued.
