    Sorry, no and never a Bruckmann made item.
    Bruckmann was well known for best quality.

    Let your fingers off - random i life in Heilbronn where the Bruckmann company was.
    Look around in the web for Bruckmann silver and compare - this is complete - sorry - trash!

    As Odal said, the details should be much more sharper on a genuine Bruckmann piece. The eagle's head and chest feathers on this one are very soft and have little definition. The wings are mere smears and the wreath leaves have vanished into a segmented ring. If you will look for other Bruckmann examples, you will see a vast difference in appearance. Even with many years of polishing, it would not be possible to deteriorate the raised eagle design to this point.

    Here is an example of a good napkin ring. Note the square shoulders of the eagle wings, etc. Like I said, even with many many years of polishing, I doubt that the ring posted could have gotten to the shape that it's in. But, who knows? Judge for yourself and see what you make of it!

    Interesting to note that no napkin rings were ever part of the official period AH silver inventory.

    Hi Erich,

    That is what I understand too. Also the lack of provenance of any vet bringbacks of these rings is a bit of a red flag. A Google search shows literally hundreds of these on iOffer, Live auctioneers, ebay etc. plus Snyders Treasures and Germania International....Not the best purveyors of genuine 3rd Reich collectibles.

    Correct Ned and that's why I would not have one in my collection.

    The ring that I posted was sold by Alexander Autographs-a member of the forum here. I wonder what the history of that one was?
