These types of rings were produced both locally for the men and by the men themselves as trench art. The materials can be aluminum, nickel,stainless or even brass. Any number of metals,actually. Whatever was available. Unfortunately, they are impossible to date accurately. The locals continued to make them after the war's end, as souvenirs and momentos. And, of Course...the damned Fakers have been producing them in considerable numbers as well. If there's a buck to be made, they will go for it. The ring posted Looks okey, to my eyes, but as I said-without bulletproof provenance, it is simply not possible to say definitively one way or the other.

This ones are often brass and plated. Looks good to me, should be not very expensive.
A big thank you for info and opinions I will buy it, the price is 65 euro.
I would say it is OK too.

Thanks Adrian, the opinions from you guys are good for my sleep.
Hello again I now have it in my hand and the wear of it and the patina looks good.
It's not magnetic and the ring has a yellow/gold tone under the plating so the material is brass.
I'm happy with this item but it will be a gift for my father
Thank you again guys!
