Could use some help with a couple of finds...

Can't tell if the ring below is gold or not. The only markings on the inside are UNCA, I found some things online about that hallmark, but not much. I tried an acid test and the scratches held their own at 10k but not 14k. But - the brushed style of the finish makes it look a little more like brass to me than gold.

The dime has me scratching my head. When I took it out of the tumbler I noticed a hump on Roosevelt's cheek - like he had chewing tobacco in his mouth. I flipped the coin over expecting to see a dent, but instead found another hump. It's as if a tiny pebble or something got within the coin as it was being minted. Anyone ever see anything like this?

Odd stuff...
