    Hi Glenn , I know nothing about rings, but this appears to have a good "style" to it. It seems a bit crude to me like a piece of arts and crafts. I would not be at all surprised if this were a period piece. Leon.

    Very nice Glenn!
    The skull almost resembles a Panzer totenkopf.
    I have another on the way as well.

    It does look good to me as well. It is, from the appearance, styled on either a Panzer or an earlier SS skull. I like it!

    Maybe it's earlier? Can the possibility be that it's circa 1914+ or even pre 20th century as it resembles closely the cap badge design of the Prussian cavalry and Life Guards regiments of that period?

    Thanks for the opinions and to Ned for the photos...It's supposedly Hussaren-related as you suggest...I thought it was Freikorps-era myself due to the style...thanks again, friends.
    cheers,Glenn

    Very interesting looking ring!
    Can you spot the manufacturing method? How is the skull afixed?

    My thoughts exactly, or maybe from the Spanish civil war.
    Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.

    Yes, it's the same ring...I didn't want to increase the competition, but I guess it's too late now, lol....
