    Hi Timpe!

    Thanks for input.
    Swas for airforce, yes a posibility. Of course i know these 1940 donating rings with wings, swas and finnish rose.

    Otherwise there are some patterns out with swas that are a kind of german/finnish friendship rings. Remember the Rovaniemi/Petsamo ring with swastikas. For sure this pattern has nothing to do with the finnish airforce.

    In the case of this 2 rings with swas i am real not sure. Specially the one with the oakleafes.
    Are oakleafes common with finnish military?
    From the hallmark dating (this is a silver made ring) it would fit in the WWII period. It was made 1943.
    Thanks.

    The silver one with the swastika's looks to have alternating Swastikas and Mannerheim Crosses. Interesting.

    The 1940 ones are donating rings you would get these if you gave your gold wedding ring for the war effort .The HSYL and HK rings look like school rings to me given for pasting out at high school , not sure about the M with lion ring it looks military to me
