E,

You are definitely perfecting your art. I agree with G you do have the best ring out there. Good job!

I’m absolutely in love with my ring, I wear it everyday and I can’t stop to watch it every couple of minutes ahahahah now it starts to get some patina and the inner layer it’s a bit worn

When I can afford it, I will buy the others too!

Same here, same here...

Not to be a shill for Evgeniy, but I have no doubt in my mind these rings will become much more valuable down the years, especially when Eugene stops making them (which will hopefully not be for a while smile ). After all, they are better than Piechl's reproductions. Get'em while you can people...

I have been meaning to ask, does anyone have any info on the Japanese reproductions mentioned in Gottlieb's book? I haven't been able to find any information on them online.

Es rings are so good that I think one day in the future when these HRs display honest wear and tear and all of us have gone to our rewards that these will be looked upon as authentic!

There used to be a lot of info here on the Japanese reproductions. We had a member from Japan that claimed to be making them and even had a website.. - It was pretty much those rings we started using the term SuperFakes.....

Years ago there was a problem and we lost many back pages . You might get lucky though with a few searches and a old topic about them show up..

I tried searching, but couldn't find a topic dedicated to these repros, only mentions of them.

I finished reconstructing the skull from my original 1938 ring and made a copy of it. A lot of time was spent on clarifying the lost details, as well as understanding that the wear also touched the chin of the skull and the chin was a little worn, perhaps the owner wore another ring, which was erased.
I was looking for a similar skull for a long time in order to make a reconstruction, finally such a copy was found, and although it was a ring dated 1940, I sometimes meet such inconsistencies, most likely there was a good blank that was used to make the ring in 1940, all these divisions for a year is a pure convention, but it’s more convenient for me to explain the situation. And although we know that no two skulls are the same (because they were subjected to a very large manual refinement), nevertheless, I rocked a skull that would be as close as possible to the skull from my 1938 ring, in the end I found it and made a reconstruction. But I tried to show everything in the photo, as well as to present the skulls from the rings of 1938, they all have a similar type, as you can see, but of course this is not the law, there are rings of 1938 with skulls of the type 33-37.
From the remaining traces of cut teeth, I found out (in one of the photos I schematically showed their location) that there were 5 teeth in a row.

and some shots to text...
This type of skull, it seems to me, was a search for a new design, which also continued in 1939

[that original 40 is a small size!]

Very interesting to see the different wear on the 38s.. With some rings of 38 that you mentioned with the early skulls it is probably just Gahr not wanting to waste and using a skull from a prior batch.

- Your restored copy came out magnificent! I congratulate you and your hard work and thanks for posting here for the members to see....

If anyone is interested, I have a new type 41 SS Honor Ring reproduction with green gems for eyes from Evgeniy in size 9.5 I would not mind parting with. Nothing wrong with; I bought it in case I wanted to gift it to someone, but I decided I would rather not sit on it for who knows how long. The interior inscription reads "S.lb. Walter 21.12.41 H.Himmler".

I figured I would post this here since Eugene's rings might be hard to come by right now for fans due to the sanctions against Russia. I am located in the US and will take $300 shipped for it.

There are less original rings than you think, much less...
