Couple of mine for comparison, as per Gaspare?s request. Forgot the reverse, but looks like Gaspare?s - no differences.

much thanks Mike... Super thin band! same exact side band designs, same exact details.. I remember this ring, I'm 99% sure no 'dots' anywhere!

Super hard ring to find with the silver wash on it and in good condition. The guys must have either really liked them or thats a real soft alloy mix as they are all in pretty worn condition.. I've seen these in this worn condition go for $200. Don't remember what you paid Mike.. Right time and right place you cane get them for much less..

test:

ok it kind of worked.. Mike is showing what he thinks is what could be a problem with the ring.. I agree. , plus the dots from the other photo. Without good photos no one can say serious this is 100% authentic.. Maybe a friend, family member , neighbor etc. can take a better photo.. some of these phones they say can take a good close up but I don't know.. I use a camera on 'Macro'..

Poor photos on a computer monitor will make things look bad sometimes when they are not,,and vice versa..

here's mine.. On yours this area where the red lines are look raised..
Mine, Mikes, others it is not raised. It was originally a carve from the die cutter.. Now if you took a wax impression to make a wax model to cast the line would be raised.. OR, the poor photo just making it look like that! yes a pain in the ass... This hobby,,a good camera is a must at the minimum. Many badge and medal guys now even going to microscopes !!

In the image on bobs ring I dont like the spot on the 10 oclock position. Looks like cast overflow. Hope I am wrong- but other side looks iffy too.
