I have never heard this called panzer troop ring, I would have said just a pp skull pattern. a top- down shot would be helpful. But what I see here is an odd placement for the silver content and "laurins" mark. Laurin mark looks odd to me (generally just a stamp "Ln" in script) a jewlers mark of high quality. It looks thick, but I would draw it as inconclusive for me based on these pix. Regardless, for 350€ it better be unquestionable and a rare pattern. Wait for more opinions.

Thats an insane price. Whatever floats your boat. Maybe they just have deep pockets. I must have some skulls worth 2,000 or more by that measurement. Thanks for the posts.

Not sure.... I'd say it's questionable, and I'd wait for some more opinions before buying. This is a wise move to post here. Let's see what others have to say

First ring has real some Problems and i nearly never have seen a bad Laurin mark like this.
At least very questionable ring.

At yes, the pattern is a private purchase skull.
Everyone could buy it.

This ring has been reproduced a long time and very well..
,,I am undecided on it also - sometimes hard to tell if pitting on a forehead or just beat up and then wear sometimes.. Would be great to have clearer shots and a better photo of the Ln mark..

pics are clear enough - ring is cast without doubts. There is at least two casting balls at 7' oclok and in eye.

Second ring from auction also is at least questionable, most likely also cast.
