  I posted this item a while ago in the state it came out the ground  from our west of  Glasgow dig a few weeks ago, some folk seem to think its a clothes toggle after a clean up can I ask if anyone can have another look at this please because I am not so sure the ring is coming up gold in colour after a polish and the artifact is what looks like bronze  a reddish colour is coming through the coating. cheers .
