My forks ( 1949 ) have the thin brass ring fixed in place ( ? brazed ) It locates and retains the dust seal. It sound as if your rings may have been detached – accidentally or possibly deliberately – and then someone has tried to hold them in with centre punching. If so, then it would be a nasty bodge. Better to make up new rings if necessary and braze or silver solder into the cowls.
