Default Pewter ring with peace-like symbol

Here is another find from a historic farm area in upstate NY.

It appears to be an old pewter ring ( quite heavy).

The symbol is similar to a peace sign, and it may be that, but I am not so sure.

There are no internal markings I can see and it is very worn.

Any help is appreciated.

Wow I did not realize this was a Norse symbol. It certainly looks more like this variant than the "peace" symbol.( arm lengths and proportions)

This also appears to be the most worn item I have ever found. It rang at the high silver range on the Nox, but It appears to be a dark grey pewter-like color and weighs 9.3 grams.

This one has me stumped. I dug it 3-5 feet from the "coat of arms button" I posted the other day. I may have to consult with an antiques expert to see if these are antique or not.
