Well over the holidays I decided to try my luck on 2 rings. 1 from Europe, one from East Europe. They were inexpensive but real finds...
First one was a nice wedding type band and just had oak leafs going around it. Had a nice hallmark. Was coming from Europe. I never got it! IKt's been over a month, about 6 weeks now. You play you got to pay sometimes..

BUT, I made up for it! The 2nd one from East Europe. Came in 2 weeks!!!

Looking at the shield I knew it was an old type. Then when I checked hallmark I had to go for it..

you see the hallmark is for Latvia,,1920s - 40,41,, sidehead Kokoshnic/875..... and the bits of colored enamel , Blue over yellow,, Ukraine!!,

A OUN ring,, Ukrainian Nationalists! For me,, a great find!

Wow,,so after giving up on it ,, a small package arrives from Germany in the mailbox... The other ring I took a chance on!..

When buying it couldn't get much info on it other than 'it is old'... . I didn't pay much for it,,just liked it.. Not sure what I'm going to do with it [have some checking to do on it],,put it in collection,,or give to my grandson!

Really good deep detail,,appears to be silver,,,and a very small size..
