John, how does your recent Petsamo ring compare to the worn example you showed back on page #6 of this thread?

Thanks again for sharing.

The very first ring is unadorned, plain and without a maker mark.

The new one is more elaborate and has a maker mark that I cannot decipher.

It looks like the 1 st. more worn ring may have been maker marked. Just worn smooth.

Finland has beaten the USSR twice,,,looks like they might be helping to do it again!

- John,, You probably have the best selection/examples of march pins of anyone..,,,and the bracelets are stunning... I'm guessing the 2nd are the provinces/states of Finnland[?]

- your 2nd Petsamo ring,,,is it silver? Is it enamel or a type of paint in it?

Thx, G.

To me.
, the maker mark is a silver mark and it is enamel.

I just love these bracelets and travel pins.

The Finns, along with their allies, kicked Russian butt once, they would do it again especially against the ragtag armed forces that are in the Ukraine.

No, not a wooden plaque. This is the Icemeerfront cross, only almost completely in enamel. Instead of the Finnish lion, a skier is depicted. It was sold at an auction in 2003 in the city of Buffalo. This photo was sent to me by a friend.

It may be the picture, but I do not like this badge.

I believe that there are fakes of this medal using original dies.

BAM.
I see the "4's" in the date are closed at the top. Have you seen that before other than the Icemeerfront cross example with the skier you showed that was mostly enamel?

Yes, I saw it, but only on 2 staves. And the Swastika on the German flag in black enamel.
