Given it was a 23 on the nox I’m thinking maybe copper ? Definitely not silver though don’t think.

Nice item in good nick for a copper based ring. Looks post medieval to me - Stuart or Georgian period?
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

Most of the heavy cast ones with the flower design do indeed appear to be Georgian. However the cuts make it a bit different to usual and I suspect that it is no later than early 18thC. 👍
