I reckon I already know what you will say smile but I would value your opinions on this ring. It's a good looker for sure but I doubt whether it is genuine Third Reich. It looks like gold but I don‘t believe that it is. There are a couple of marks inside the band but they are all but unintelligible.
Thanks guys,
Stephen

Looks like a nice Phat biker ring , overall design doesn’t look 1940s

I would say your suspicion that it is a fantasy piece is correct. It would be highly unlikely the SS would use gold anyway as they considered silver a more “pure” element.

I have many period advertisements for rings that were never made. Offered in materials, designs that were never put in to production. There are many reasons but thats for another topic..

I would welcome to see that exact ring in Antonios advert in gold!

Stephen,, it might be gold! All it takes is a 2 min test at the local jewelers! I agree it doesn't have the right style, quality etc for a 3rd reich era ring... BUT,,if you got it a long time ago and it turns out to be even 10k gold,,,well with the price of gold lately you could use it towards a 'more authentic' 3rd reich ring! wink
