I'm amazed by some of you folks collection in here. Might share my tiny collection of old rings.

Four of them are Swedish ww2 rings, the rest are just rings anyone could of worn. All rings are 40s or older smile

Second from top left first photos with the red stones in the eyes looks a lot like a “Billiken” ring.

Like the Ordinance ring, and the flight cadet ( I think) ring.
Ord was my MOS with Armor as the major.

That's cool smile

The Ordinance ring is Swedish anti-aircraft (luftvärnet)
And the other ring is the Swedish air force ( Västmanlands flygflottilj F 1 ) they flew Junkers Ju 86.

What a nice collection.. sometimes quality is better than quantity!

As Evgeniy mentions the gold tone skull and snakes is very nice,,old,, Some were Hungarian made , some Russian,,yours with that hallmark is Russian,,

Does the Finn rings have date codes? The Swedish rings have the 3 crown hallmarks??

That's true! I only collect silver / gold rings.

All the Swedish rings have date codes and tree crowns. I don't think I've ever seen a Swedish military ring without proper hallmarks, unless it's not an official ring. What do you mean "Finn rings" ? No Finnish rings in my collection smile
