Brass and silver plated.
Would like to hear some opinions.

It has black eyes, the green is oxydation.

I love that skull G- maybe in another lifetime, eh? Yes the repro is a repro-
But it's a big size!!! And a nice wearer!! For a fraction of the price, why not? As long as you know what it is and don't try to pretend it's something it isn't- (I'm not) then with all the members here who LIKE TO WEAR their rings... this is a GREAT option! And it's for sale too- so first one takes it home! (It's for you wearers out there- this is a much safer option than your originals for daily use!)

Only reason for hole is for security - to avoid explosion when ring is soldered second time. First - hollow skull is soldered on flat band, second - when ring is bent in circle and soldered.


There are less original rings than you think, much less...

That's really interesting, hap- I thought it was a rivet.

Here's a couple- I have a worn version of the first one- middle bottom row. My pirate/rivets above- far right top is a new piece for me. Thick and chunky. Early piece, I would imagine..

Here's a new one- hollow skull, really well done join, stamp nicely visible- not sure I can identify the "lozenge" stamp with an "E" and a star, or something like it... regardless- a pattern I very much wanted for a long time!!

Odal,,that 2nd skull you show,,solid back yes.. Very old pattern, very hard to find in good condition..

Mark,,yes those wide band skulls are old patterns. Friekorps throughout WW2. Many have the slant pattern design on the band like this ad,,and commomly called 'tank tread pattern skull. The smooth band like Mikes also becoming hard to find,,,hell,,,everything authentic is hard to find now! wink
