WOW,, what a great collection! You also got a really nice old one at the MAX I remember!!

These silly things are worth money! Many in the states collect 'Premium Rings'.. There is even a book on these in a couple printings!

Well all this may be a bit silly,,but..
Many of the older Premium rings were made in the early 1930s and produced similar if not the same production methods...

Love it, love it , love it!!

Members, this was bought NOT as a 3rd reich ring. It came in a lot of 2, 3? rings. Knowing it was a Premium ring. This ring is listed I believe in one of the editions of the book. I also use an example for my project in the Postwar,Non 3rd reich rings.. For those that collect Premi rings value of this can go as high as $100 easily..

Wow g, yeah that's it! Thanks for the advert- that's cool! Not sure it shines in the dark though! Eh, no biggie
All I ever wanted was the X-ray specs anyway from those magazines...if u remember that ad- also a tad disappointing--
