I had bought several of Evgeniy's excellent SS Honor Ring reproductions and I wanted to see how other repros compared. The pictures looked decent at www.sshonorring.com, so I exchanged some emails with Russ, sent him $275, and was EXTREMELY disappointed with what I received.

Here's the terrible little ring by itself! eek

lol, it's not even as big as Evgeniy's 1937 version! grin

Lastly, this is the award letter and ring box that he sent, lmao! laugh

What a joke! It's hard to believe that Russ over at sshonorring.com thinks that it is acceptable to send people this kind of crap. My conclusion is that Russ is a dishonorable scumbag or suffers from a severe mental illness. In either case, I would NOT recommend purchasing anything from him.

Do I regret losing $275? Yes, because I could have purchased almost two of Evgeniy's superior Honor Rings for that amount. On the other hand, I did get a good laugh at this pathetic ring, and I got to post this review so hopefully nobody ever buys anything from Russ ever again.

Here's what I think of Russ and his products! cool

Why didn't you just return for a refund?

I thought about it, but then I realized this man most likely knew what he was doing when he packed these items up and sent them to me. I consider myself an honorable man; I try to uphold morality and decency whenever I can. Exposing Russ' blatant disrespect and lack of morality is worth losing $275.

Its quality is known to me, I had to compare its copy with mine, one guy here in Moscow bought a copy of it and met with me to compare both copies, the comparison was not in favor of the Canadian copy, but I just did not consider it necessary to write about it .
Say that the guy bought the advertisement for the Meyer ring, which was pure fantasy, the Canadian copy has nothing to do with the Meyer ring - a fabrication to boost the sale
Somewhere I had photos comparing my copy and Canadian
I'll show you if you're interested

I am asking the moderators to edit/delete this above portion of ABTmRw's post. It really is not relevant to the discussion.

Of course you would, pardner.

Tanker asked me a question and I answered to the best of my ability. Perhaps what I wrote made him uncomfortable about his own way of thinking.

Anyway, in the absence of direct evidence, all we can do is speculate based off a multitude of factors. I've dealt with guys like Russ before, so I'm confident in my 'speculation'.

You answered but the speculation was not needed.
I don't know what your motives are or the meaning of this statement in your post, but personal post and derogatory accusations have no place on the forum. Please don't try and make a confrontaion of the thread.

Ok, no problem. Here is a comparison, sorry that there may be a lot of watermarks, but I began to find crooks who give out my photos as their products and sell something under my name, so I began to do this.
By that time, my copy had already been worn for 3-4 months, there were some signs of wear from the circle area, otherwise these are trifles ...
