Was itching for a dig today after work. With the sun going down so early, I figured I’d dig some pull tabs and clad, but to my surprise I pulled this 64 quarter and bent sterling ring from the same hole! Found it online- made by uncas circa 1930. It’s verrrry thin so I won’t risk bending it back…

Very nice, congrats!
Btw, easy to straighten out the ring, just anneal it and you'll probably be able to straighten it out with just your fingers on something round.

Looks like it straightened out nicely. How did you end up fixing it?

There are plenty of jewelers that can make that ring look good as new.

I once had a friend, we hunted together and he was a jeweler for his job- I found a mangled silver bangle bracelet and he fixed it like it never happened. I am forever grateful.

I'd pay to have that ring fixed...even if it cost more than the ring is worth. That's just me though....

Sorry for the confusion, I found the same ring on an auction site and posted a pic from that auction. I do plan on hearing it up with a torch and using a dowel rod to straighten it out!
