I've found some rings from a local antique seller, what do you think? Real or fake?
Here is #1

The skull, I am unsure about. It is a known pattern but interested in what others think.

They are all bad. I have seen that fake skull out on eBay for a while. Stay away from all 3.

The two SS rings are worse than fakes: they are compete fantasies. Neither pattern, to my knowledge, existed during WW2.

I am not sure I understand the question I am afraid... I would say a fake is a fake regardless. The first one is based on a skull pattern- but the other two are just fantasy pieces...
