Hi everyone- I'm not sure we did this for 2015 but we did for 2014...so since it's already December...let's see what goodies we found this year! What's 2016s best and brightest? I had quite a few big finds but I am particularly attached to my 1935 Braunschweig J.Sch. skull - man what a ring, for a skull guy like me- hell of a find.., what was your big pick, find, or acquisition? Please share with us all!

yeah that's a nice one Byz!! Beautiful hallmark too!

This was my worst year ever. Think that one Polit ring and the flag bracelet was my only hauls this year. The longer you collect the harder it gets to find something!

Andy got that nice WW1 flyers ring this year!
Odal our past champ must have gotten good ones this year, Evgeniy too usually gets them every year. Yeah, come on, post then if you got them!

I couldn't narrow mine down to just one, as I like them all, so these are a few of my favorites this year..an Italian DAK with swaz, a diamond shaped Italian DAK with palm and deer, and a Gegen Engelland with about 65% of its original silver wash. On the Allied side, a silver and enamel 20th Air Force, and Silver and gold 1942 China with stone.

This pirate skull ring it is probably German ring founded on August 1915 when German Army entered Warsaw on WW1. I do not know where it was manufactured. This one is a dud found near Warsaw by a fellow digger.

As you can see photo was cut and just focused on the ring itself!
But if it's an issue for you...moderator can delete the two photos showing the SS ring!
and use this one instead. Thank you
