Most definitely not a period alteration IMO. If I had to speculate, which as Antonio said is only "blah blah", I would say the modification was likely done post war by a collector.

Antonio has done his homework and research.. The info on the runes are in the book but are not from his personally looking at the credits. The info is from his research....

Evgeniy on the other hand is correct also in his opinion.... It all comes down to this though.. Is it possible a period jeweler to have installed the eyes? well,,,yes.. BUT,,is it probable?... Possible,,probable...........

My opinion is period jewelers wouldn't want to even resize a HR let alone add something to it...

I too like Mikee wonder what those eyes are! Glass? ,Garrnet?[no] , Ruby? As on the Fundforum my advice to the owner is,,,leave it be as is...

You being the owner of a well known ring,show class and clarity on your thoughts!

Language may be a issue! I did consider that!

This forum gets over run with biker rings,ebay,fakes,and such that when real stuff gets shown or discussed like Wotons find!

Its exciting to talk about the history or discuss rings and the mystery of real!

After seeing endless biker and ebay stuff!

Sometimes a few questions get asked in the hope of why!

But with so few real rings in collectors hands we have to expect the is it real question!
