    I would say it might be tombak which is an alloy of copper and zinc it could have had a nickel silver finish at some point maybe.

    Personally I have trouble selling anything That I collect. I am kind of a collecting hoarder if you will.

    A jeweler may be able to straighten it, possibly. I have straightened rings by using a tapered rod and tapping the ring down with a piece of wood, but of course that was with softer materials. But I think the ring looks cool like it is and if left alone you know it would not break!

    I agree Hummel, I am a bottle digger also, and have loads of bottles I have hoarded that I wont sell!

    Thanks for the info, I think the ring is best left as it is also

    My ring is brass with nickel? plating.
    Die struck and made in typical period way.

    These rings were intentionally produced to be inexpensive and their metal alloys were all over the place. You see good brass, bronze, coppery brass or bronze, tomback, steel, you name it. Slap a thin coat of silver or nickel-silver on it and it looks fine in any case. The majority of them were plated, or else the metal would turn the owners finger green...sometimes even making them sore...

    I have decided to keep this ring and not sell it, thank you all very much for your values and information, and thanks to the people that emailed me with offers.

    All the best
