Ex: Schindler’s Antiques, King Street, Charleston, Purchased about 1980. Bronze, size 7 3/4 with raised bezel set with an oval cabochon cut natural carnelian. The shoulders with line motif and the balance of the band stipple decorated. Probably originally silver plated. It was common for cavalry troopers to remove their rings before battle as they marginally compromised the purchase of the sword grip.
