Title: King of England
Type of Seal: Promisory Campaign Ring
Date: 1483 - 1485
Price: $18.00 (28.00 as a book mark)
Comments: This is an impression of a ring that had been given to one of Richard's followers before the battle on Bosworth Field with the promise that when they win the battle the recipient would obtain a leading position in Richards cabinet. The ring has the initial W on it from which we can conclude that the first name of the recipient started with a W (e.g. William). There are approximately a dozen such rings known to exist. This ring was found with a metal detector on Boswoth field and given to me (Alexander Wieber by my wife Julia as a biryhday present. I use it as my sealing ring.
