Copper flange ring(?) Haggered. Issue?

Working on replacing my crush gaskets on my cobra exhaust on my 1600 mean streak and one of these things does not look like the other.

Edit: just learned they are apparently the flange retaining rings. I don't suspect that one being a touch on the mangled side should cause any issues at this point. But I'd love someone to confirm or deny that for me.

Is this an issue? Do I need to replace the mangled one?

Figured out the retaining rings are an issue but not the only issue. The flanges themselves are warped, the rear being the worst (the cylinder I noticed the exhaust leak from). So now off to the internet to order a new exhaust flange kit
