During the 1940's, the Mexican peso was a low value currency.  Artisans in small towns and along the border, would melt down the worthless peso and re-cast them into something they could sell and make more money than the actual coins were worth.  Tourists would visit and buy a souvenir ring to remember their travels.  The styles of the rings usually consisted of skulls, Indians, and other popular culture motifs.  Known as Mexican souvenir rings or Mexican biker rings ( as a replacement for the outlawed brass knuckles ), they became a statement piece in hot rod, motorcycle, and even celebrity culture of the 1940's-60's.                        

Hand-finished, soldered, aged, and polished one at a time, making each one unique so no two are exactly alike
