After the successful German invasion of Norway in 1940, a cottage industry grew up making souvenir items for the occupying troops.

One such was the creation of commemorative rings by the various jewelers across Norway.

This is my most recent arrival and is the result of a tip from Gaspare, who has helped me find many such items.

It is a Norwegen 1940 Luftwaffe ring with a festive motif, wreath and candle.

I also have two other Norwegen 1940 Luftwaffe rings with a flag, the difference between these two is in the border around the eagle/flag.

John,,, found this photo in my files.... A one piece ring. Looks like it might be authentic.. There is a extrem lack of detail compared to yours,,,and looks like it never had any!
Whatever it is I'd rather have yours any day.

Norge Ship Blue Sail
Norge Ship Red Sail

That's it so far for my Norge rings.

I have a couple of Finnish and some Norwegian rings and jewelry items as well.

Thanks for looking,
John

John,

Phenomenal rings. I've always wanted to collect these, but they've terrified me, like a lot of non-insignia silver...never know what to look for, or what's fantasy...but this serves as a good reference!

Brig,

You can always count on help and advice from Gaspare and the members of this forum. I know that I do.

Good to hear from you. There aren't a lot of Norway collectors here on GDC.

J
