A British man who unearthed an estimated 670-year-old medieval ring in the late 1970s recently rediscovered it hidden in storage boxes — and learned the forgotten treasure is reportedly worth thousands of dollars.

Tom Clark, 81, who is retired, told SWNS he found the ring using a metal detector while treasure-hunting on farmland near Aylesbury, England, in 1979.

He kept the find, placing it in a metal tin and stowing it away in his mother’s garage. He forgot about the ring for decades — until recently, when Clark was rummaging through some boxes that he once kept at his mother’s house.
