Looking around I actually saw some authentic WWII german rings for sale on an US auction!!. Prices were very high,,but maybe thats what they are now..

anyway,,, While looking around I saw this.. - A fake Lauren mark [Ln].. Looks like they were trying very hard.. * We know what the real ones look like*. The mark represents a finely made and finished ring..

So, forget the other 2 marks look at the band. Streaky, just about unfinished, unpolished, thick... No way a Ln mark would be on that band..

Be careful out there guys..........

PS

well what you know! I posted it already! On this well thought out fake

The text in the first ad you posted is pretty blurry and indistinct Gaspare. I can't make a lot of it out. This one says:

Laurin jewellery

Recognisable by the Laurin stamp

The Laurin stamp is only awarded to those pieces of jewellery that meet very specific conditions for material and durability

Svb,,,yeah I couldn't get it any clearer.. The 2nd is a bit better..

- - Thanks so much for the translation .

The stamp Transends'' all jewelers. - They all could use it....BUT,, there must have been some type of governing body .. Otherwise some jeweler could make a real POS piece, some real junk,,,and simply put the Ln stamps on it!!
I've looked a few times, done a small amount of research, but could not find really anything.. - There must have been standards, or penalty if if the stamp was used incorrectly,,, .A fine, suspension,, loss of manufacture licence [?] something!!!.

IF any one of you have seen it, or have it saved, it sure would be nice for us all to see it... Meanwhile,,I'll continue to check around, do what research I can,,there must be something out there...
