There are those who collect various military things and have a couple rings in their collection,,,and then there are ring collectors... Sometimes the ring collectors after a while have plenty of rings and go into everything else. Photos,history, tooling, adverts, etc etc..

Well, ring collectors know that Himmler was a ring man. Usually always wearing some sort of ring. Sometimes more than one on a finger!! - I have a photo of what looks like [and is] Himmler wearing a Skull and Snakes ring,,a famous photo. - ,anyway,,

Now here's a photo I have not seen before... Himmler with K. Deluge.. Seems to be pointing his finger to something thats maybe important..

Whats important [and interesting] to me is,,,,,what ring is that on his finger!! It has to be something military or National Socialist,,something cool for sure.

- I cleaned the photo it up as much as possible and can't get an idea what it could be... Anyone with a good guess? or knows?,,,lets hear it if you have an idea!!

No idea what the ring is but the fourth finger, right hand is normally where Germans wear their wedding ring.

It looks like 2 circles on a rectangle field.. But not clear enough to really see what they are!

Yes, there are photos of him wearing his wedding band. Also photos of him wearing ,,and not wearing his Honor ring.. Also photos of him with other rings.. He's a ring guy!

I'm looking for a clearer/better photo of this....,G.

Besides the honor ring, have ANY other rings been identified that were worn by Himmler? I'm curious because I'm a bit of a ring guy myself.

I meant more like if anyone traced the rings he wore to something we could look at separately. Like we have honor rings we can look at closely, but I don't think anything else?

- In 40+ years of looking I have never seen any private purchase rings owned by Himmler.. There were rings claimed to be, as well as cufflinks,tie clips, stic pins you name it. But all a pipe dream,,fantasy..

There might have been a way he got some of his personal belongings to his Wife/children. Maybe his wedding band. As well he couldn't have worn all his rings at one time so some might have survived with the family.... I've just never seen or hear of..

He was captured wearing a Police uniform. Some of his insignia,,jacket[?] I think survived and collectors have, but were they actually his? who knows... - Dagger guys,,,any of his daggers /degens survive?!?
