Well off for a few days to the MAX show.. Usually not the place to score a ring but sometimes I get lucky..
What will happen is I'll eat a bunch of bad food,,drink too much,,and see some buddies I haven't seen in a long time,,and that's the important one!!
O.K. guys find some nice rings for all us to see when I get back!!

- rings, hat, and big belly! that's me!!

We probably had too much fun!

Dave took the photo after a 7 hr drive and then while joking,,'hey you ready for the show'..I said,,my wallets not big enough for you high rollers!
That's my buddy 'Tony' an advanced SS cloth collector for many years who has 'retired' from collecting and over the last 3 years has sold his minty mint collection of SS cloth.

There were 6 or so good private purchase rings there. I had them all...Sadly my Nikon went out with the tide waters :(, so no photos from me. But I saw Pvon taking some good ones. And, a friend picked up a really nice ring, cufflinks and tie bar. He'll need a day or so recovery but he promised he post them here for us to oogle!

These Ostfront rings were discussed in Germany, does this one also have the Polish Silver Stamp on the outer ringband?

Best, Pzb14

yes,,although this one is very worn..
I didn't like these rings for years. Then finally saw one from a German vet!
I have one too, the side embelishments are slightly different [they all are] and mine has the wartime Polish mark also..
