    Default Possible German Ring from WWII?

    I was looking through some old coins my grandfather left me (mostly 20s/30s/40s timeframe) and included in the lot was this ring.

    I was thinking this was a Freemason's ring until I did more searching, and it looks like a German WWII type of ring. The only reason my grandfather would have had it is it may have come from my grandmother's brother who fought for the United States in WWII. He died in a car crash in 1949, so it's plausible some of his things got left with my grandmother/grandfather.

    The ring is not gold. I had it tested at a jeweler and the acid turned bright green. Plus, it leaves a blackish-green mark on my finger after even only a few hours of wearing it.

    I'm just curious as to its history. If it truly is from a German soldier, could my grandmother's brother have taken it after death?

    The story is possibly more valuable than the ring itself.

    Are there any markings on the inside?

    Nothing visible to the naked eye, though the jeweler said there was something under magnification, but he couldn't make it out. There's also a slight gouge in one area on the inner part, though that could have come from anything.

    Sorry,Nerdy, but the post is over 4 years old and the original poster was just a one hitter asking a question for some free advice and has never come back since. Before or After.
