Hi there,
let me introduce my book on SS-Totenkopfring. The first part is about the history etc. Based on Boyles, Gottliebs and Scapinis book, but I added a lot of new documents, fotos etc.
My collection is 26 rings, which are shown in the second part of the book (Sepp Dietrich, Karl Ullrich, Herbert Shulze, F.X. Schwarz and 22 other rings.
Its mainly for Czech collectors, because there is no book on SS-Totenkopfrings, but Im sure youll like it too.
Book has 800 pages, full of fotos. Printed on quality paper 135g. Format B5 (25x18x5 cm), weight is 2,5 kilos.
See video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_HtExFDGnDI

More infos and order here: www.totenkopfring.cz

Thanks for your attention and enjoy your collecting!

Welcome Martin!
Great to have an addition to Dons book. C.G.s HR book was not received well. It had many views/findings that most collectors did not agree with!

I haven't seen the Italian one yet. I have a feeling it is a good one too.
With rings,,the more the merrier I believe.. Good luck with it, hope it sells well..

OK guys!! You have been asking for another HR book!! HERE IT IS!, ENJOY!

Martin, please feel free to show some photos from the book for the guys to check out,,,thanks!

Dear Gaspare,
thanks for your kind words.
Here you are more photos: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_HtExFDGnDI

I know, the collectors dont agree with Craig, but Im on his side - TK rings were CAST. I have examined all my 26 rings and Im sure about that. Call me heretic! laugh

equirhodont, your efforts to create a book about hr s has to be highly appreciated.
Your collection is truely astonishing! Perhaps you can show the one or the other of them in details also here (eg. the Dietrich ring?).
But, due to my personal experiences and imho your opinion about the production process of original, period hr s is.....omg.
Sorry, regards,

In the book you can find a lot of detail fotos, which show casting. But I dont want to mean to open atmosphere. It is not important, what I think about the production. As I said on WAF, the reader can choose, which method he likes more... I do not convince anyone and respect opinion of th eother side...

Byzanti asked me to share the story of "Stechovice treasure".
I have SS-Totenkopfring of the 2 main persons - SS-Standartenfhrer Dr. Robert Gies and SS-Oberfhrer Emil Klein.
Here you can read more about the treasure: http://www.helmutgaensel.com/aindex.htm
Enjoy wink

Both rings are in the book: www.totenkopfring.cz

Is it true , don Boyle , gaspare , odal , hapur and others disagree that HR rings were cast ?

What made you the author decide that these were Cast ?

Interested to know before purchasing

Looks like a quality product.

I love pics as much as the next guy but couldn't bring myself to purchase a book in a language I do not understand, if you ever do an English edition post back,

I agree completely, the book looks very well done & is very interesting. Unfortunately though, it would be of little help to me in a language that I can't read. I would certainly get it if an English version comes out.

I have till now all books i know about this theme.
Patzwall, Boyle, Gottlieb and Scapini and i will buy this one too.
Because i am german speaking it was for me a little difficult to read the
2 english written ones. Much more difficult was for me the italian one.
I had to use a translator programm to got the sense of the words and i think
it was worth the time i invested in.
And so i will do it in this new book too.

A lot depends on the publisher too, in any case. It's true that later versions could be translated- but publishing is a business like any other- if it's another expense (800 pages is a lot) they might, but it would depend on the sales of the first printing. I wish Martin the best of luck with his book,
And guys - remember - I'm hoping we all buy ourselves 2 new ring books this year! (Gaspare's book is coming...!) what a library we will have!!!

Thanks, Mike,
I published that book by myself, there is no rich publisher behind me. I wanted to share my collection with other collectors. The print was very expensive - hundreds of photos, best quality coated paper and thousands bucks in the rings, of course laugh I understand your fear of Czech language, but dont care, youll love that book. Im sure! wink

I obviously don't know the intricacies involved, but tough to see the logic of cutting off perhaps half or more of your market by publishing a book that only a very small % of people on this planet can understand, then advertising on international English language forums - But I know, you don't care, I get that.

Doug makes a great point. I wonder if it is just a language interpretation when he said he " doesn't care"? Ron

Not trying to knock the guy BTW - I wish him success in sales and it is his perfect option to do as he pleases.

Unless a lot more guys than I think will be happy just looking at pics, I think it is self evident that sales will be severely muted.

Probably the "I don't care" thing, we make more of it than it was meant to be, likely just a light hearted way of saying "All is fine"

"I dont care" - I meant "it doesn't bother me" in which language the book is, if Im collector of TK rings.

Btw, If there are new photos and documents not published before and If I can see together 26 new rings in the book, including Sepp Dietrichs and Karl Ullrichs ring, do I need to understand Czech? wink

In your personal messages you are asking me for pictures of the rings. Why, if you dont understand Czech? laugh

I offered the book here, because I wanted to share information about publishing among the collectors. I dont push on you to buy it.

Thanks for understanding.

After getting Martins book now some days ago i have to say that
i am mightily impressed.
Although i don`t speak the czech language and can`t read it,
the lot of very high quality pics in this book speak for themselves.
Much high detailed pics of every existing variant of honor ring.
Lot pics of rings, details, rings in wearing, boxes, documents, and and and......Much to much to list all the content.
Very interesting for beginners a chapter about manufacturing methods and even our friend Hapurs rings are in this book.
For me a "must have" for a collector of this special rings.
