Hi folks,
I have decided that I want to run some of my collection among real experts here, in order to root out those that I suspect are fakes or copies. (The rings, not the experts! wink )
What do you make of this one? It is made of some cheap alloy... maybe even aluminium. No markings that I can see. I think it's another cheap biker ring.
Thanks,
Stephen

Stephen.., Don't fret.. These are usually glass and have been made for many years. Problem is,,they still make them the same..

Those that want to collect one for their 3rd reich era collection there are a couple things you can do:
First,,if it looks brand new it usually is!
2, Look for the European content marks,,,830,835,900. 925 is a non starter for me even though early on some were seen. On a iffy ring to start with you don't want 925.
3rd,band style! You really go to look / study the styles. Wether from old catalogs or from the internet.. Once you start actually looking/studying you start to see what is 20s-40s as to latter more current..

Yours is a possibility,,,don't ditch it. Hold on to it until another more convincing to you comes along!

Mike,

I absolutely agree with you, skull rings will always be desirable no matter the period. Seems most of us just like skulls for some reason. My oldest ring is a skull ring "Memento Mori" perhaps. German Rococo period 1723-1759.

Sorry for the picture, in hand it has more of a tarnished silver look . Thank you.
