OK guys this is open to a wide variety of rings. But not necessarily military rings..

- Labor, HJ, etc.. We might have a topic somewhere here,,but I could not find it.. IF there is a topic we can always put them together...

So,, I have some Labor rings . This period ad are the type I'm talking about... There were SO many organizational rings PREwar ,,,but the same law of 33 takes them down too!

This labor ring was once a common ring years ago to find. Now,,good luck as most are in collections.. Sometimes with this pattern you will find very small variants. Usually in the leaf / grain...

Thin band, finished off well, good detail a good example of a pre war ring..

Here another:

again good detail, finished off well, nice thin band... This example marked in band - 'Goldcharnier'... A French word [?] for a gold plate.. Some don't have the mark.

A French produced ring??

Here's an organisational ring that I posted previously. This one represents the DHV (Deutschnationaler Handlungsgehilfenverband; National Association of Commercial Employees). The DHV was the white collar workers union in pre-Nazi Germany. This is a rarely seen Nazi DHV ring. I think it's a beauty.

Here is a link to the original post:

Enamel or paint? The detail looks really good.... Inner band finished well? Seam somewhere on band?

Looks like enamel to me. The detail is really nice. Deep. This ring is not cast. Inner band is as it should be, nice and shiny. There appears to be a seam but it's well-made. Not an obvious seam but there's a clearly different tone to the silver at the rear of the band. Let me know if you want more detailed photos. I'll do my best and email to you.

There are very few silver versions of this pattern!
