Is anybody heared about Hans Rattenhuber ?
Started by Hitler's bodyguard officer, he was awarded the ring in 34, I know this for certain, because I have footage from the service film, about his ring, it was in the KGB archives, a photo session was made with the decoding of the inscription inside, I think this a big exclusive from the information about the rings of people of this magnitude.
May be some time I'll show this shots... These were shots from the official KGB film - for internal use, very few people saw them.
Somebody something more know about his ring ?

KGB archives; that is cool!

I'm guessing the ring probably ended up with some high-ranking Soviet official or maybe they gave it back to Rattenhuber after he was set free.

Yeah that ring is out there somewhere... IF stolen when USSR first broke up it could have been sold for $100 or less!...IF stolen very recent,,could be in some rich oligarchs 'Freeport'!...
