…… a ancient ring, that fell from the bony finger of a vanquished medieval baron lord, clad in full armour, as he mounted his horse ….. lost for the ensuing centuries, until re-found, outside the Barclay’s Bank, in our village, by Nigel!!!!
……. and a reason to take it to the Antiques Roadshow, where Fiona Bruce (who he has a bit of a crush on) will become totally entranced by it (and him) and whip him to the nearest expert to have it identified and valued as almost definitely priceless!
I don’t like to burst the little fella’s bubble, but if I thought for one minute that his find had any sort of monetary value or history I would certainly feel duty bound to take it and him straight to the nearest police station to have it claimed as Habeas Corpus and Non Potest Rex Gratiam Facere Cum Injuria Et Damno Aliorumand, and only when, if it isn’t claimed in the allotted time, he can consider any sort of encounter with said Fiona Bruce!
