    Well, it's squashed for sure! Interesting find.
    Probably a Victorian era monogram ring.
    You could try opening it up to make it round again, but it could crack. When it's open, you could then see if it is marked inside.
    I once found a flattened ring like this in a parking lot, and I successfully made it round again on a mandrel, but it was not this old.
    You have nothing to lose, because it's only worth scrap value in the present condition. Good luck!

    A jeweller could fix it by soldering on a “new” other half. Such a special treasure, it will then be a good to wear and enjoy.
