hi sniper 33
you have a great collection of norweign rings i like the looks of all of them i dont recall if we ever had a discussion on these types of norweign rings maybe back when odel from germany was here sadly he passed and he is ever missed but i see you have a very unusual looking oval shaped norweign ring with the clasped hands and swasticka on one end of the oval and the norweign flag on the outher end i was wondering if you could tell us is this ring silver content mark inside or outside shank thanks very much god bless andy militarynut

Guys,,if you can't get good photos of the ring you want to buy,,,and you see nice photos of their other items watch your ass! Probably a set up... But anyway,,back on topic,,thats a rare ring!!!!!!!!!!!1

Looks like a Norwegian/German friendship ring? Maybe it is related to the Quisling government andy go nice with your tabs., well here is what I see too on that piece that I like is a shank design I?ve seen on SS enamel rings.

Thats it Mike! Not exactly related to Quisling.. Kind of semi official. I stumbled upon some documentation, Ads and stuff. years ago It was sent to me by snail mail and on a floppy disc of all things!

- OFF topic, you can skip this part is you wish - It survived Sandy but no exactly the ravages of time. After I actually got a hold of a floppy reader. When I looked to my horror I found out that.. Floppys degrade over time. Looked pixelated, some just missing . Basically ruined...
Months ago [maybe a year now] Odal found a place in Germany that claimed they could retrieve the info on it.. So I sent it to him to send them.. So thats the end of the story.. I did manage to save what little was on it. Don't know if its enough to back up what I wrote so frown.. anyway, sorry to get off topic.. -

Start Topic
- The ring IS rare.. Danish,, has certain distinguishing hallmarks in the band that must be there.. Made out of Silver. The 2 emblems are in enamel.. Not many were made from what I was lead to understand.. Whats pretty crazy is that there are fakes of it!! Some poor,,some pretty dam good!
Maybe a member has one to post and we'll get a surprise.. Please even if you have a copy ,,post it....

Looks like, Sniper is going to have a hard time with this one,,,but you never know Surprises DO happen and maybe he'll get lucky! Lets hope so..........

I'm sorry, I do not show marks on the rings. I saw only one original ring, but I could not buy it. Here is a document and pin seen

I just showed you the variety of rings that were made for German soldiers in Norway. I am sure of the originality my rings. And to show in detail the rings, means in the future to see good copies. I do not need it.

Best Regards, Mikhail

Mikhall,,,don't worry I like sniper grin .. You know after a while,,and if your offering good opinions guys like to know who they're talking to.. In this computer world though you can be anyone. We could all be a bunch of Grandmothers and washwomen! Most use a 'forum' name and eventually keep it but then start signing off with their real name..

Super pin and document.!! Thanks for posting... I just remember on the original ring it had a hallmark stamped in it clearly... When a collector was going to sell me one he said his had a hallmarks. I thought I finally was going to get one! But when the photos came thru you could see the ring was a bad copy and had the same hallmark but cast in and not done good. Yes a rare ring,,,someone will get one eventually!...,G.

Sniper33 might have liquidated his Norge collection but this is still a good topic to add Norge rings too when members do a Search..



So a member sent me photos of this ring currently in a auction.. A pattern I have never seen before.. - Sniper, have you seen one? or any other member seen one..

Very simple made. Cartouche affixed to a plain band with a touch of solder. Nice thin band,,finished off well..A Christmas 1940 Norge ring! Made in .925!! with a maker mark!...

.925 and used in 1940? Maybe something special for Christmas? a limited number made? Has a nice look to it........ Anyone have their hallmark book handy??.. An ID of hallmark could tell us IF made during the period!.....

Congratulations with this rare ring !

I've never seen it before, but I recognize the typ of Norge-rings.
The rescue ring with name Florida could stand for a military saving life unit or a ship ? The little damage doesn't much detract ; the ring is attractive.

Your ring is dated 14 April1940..... Will be interesting to know why exactly that date; the German invasion in Norway was beginning April 1940 .
Inside well done engraving and stamped well.
