    I’m no expert so wait for others, but the fact that West Wall is spelt out in English is a worry to me.
    My personal opinion is to walk away from this one.

    Again, wait for the experts.

    Ahh.. Sorry Bothi. This spelling is correct.

    Paolo: I'm not a ring guy so can't help. Until our esteemed ring guru's arrive, I recommend you use the search function to find similar examples. Being "Canteen rings" there were many different types that are original from what I have seen over the years.
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    Would want to know more about it, as to where it was found, but it looks like a dug one so could be original but then again they are still turning them out in China so caveat emptor.

    This one looks real to me. It’s a known pattern albeit very badly worn. Some might say too badly worn!

    On the bottom right of the image is a representation of the ‘dragon’s teeth‘ obstacles to stop tanks and other tracked vehicles. These were all around the west front (and most of the northern French coast) and are shown on many West Wall rings. What can‘t be seen because it is so worn is the picture of a pill box that occupied most of the space under the writing at the top. This pattern came in both brass (like this one) and, later in the war, zinc.

    Regarding the term, ‘West Wall (or Westwall)’, mentioned above, it is written the same way in both English and German.

    Cheers,
    Stephen

    Yep, on closer inspection, it looks like copper with what remains of a brass or brass-coloured wash.

    A couple of the same pattern, courtesy of our late friend, Odal. One copper (or brass), the other zinc.
