    A known pattern. I believe this particular design is referred to as ‘Monkey Face’. However, while I have seen several examples of this ring in silver and a silver-coloured alloy wash (probably nickel), I have never seen a specimen in brass or whatever this one is made of. Also, I don‘t like the seam on the shank. It doesn‘t look like it was ever soldered.
    Interested in what others think but I‘d be careful with this one. Looks cheap and nasty to me. Sorry!

    Here is an example of a plated Monkey Face ring. The plating does not look like silver and there is no maker- or hallmark. This is a small ring, probably worn on the pinky. It's ugly but I kinda like it.

    This RAD ring was originally silver-coloured too.
    Maybe it was like with that ring, that after war somebody cleaned it out of the silver colour and removed red eyes

    Possibly but I think this is unlikely. Why on earth would anyone want to vandalise a nice ring, also thereby reducing its value, by doing such a silly thing? If the RAD was originally silver-plated, it is more likely that wear and tear removed any plating present. From the photo, it looks like an extremely worn ring.

    Furthermore, the silver RAD ring that you showed was posted previously in this forum...... by me! It is part of my collection. It is made of silver so it can‘t be 'cleaned out of the silver colour'. See link below:
