This data shows that the early examples are predominantly Double Rings but Single Rings dominate from 278278. This suggests that the traditional year dating cut offs or commencement dates may be a little out, perhaps by 100,000 or so. Interestingly the four known gold plated Single Rings are grouped close-ish together in two pairs, both with a plain and engraved one.
