    I thought I had found everything but this was in my mothers jewelry box. Appears to be a childs nazi ring. It is so small it only fits over the first knuckle of my pinky. Does anyone know anything about it? I assume it is silver, it is also broken but I have the piece, (what are the chances of that after 70 years.)

    Did your father bring this back from his trip? Belonging to a HJ member would explain the small size, maybe he traded for it and down the road stashed it with your moms jewelry, I dont know anything about TR rings except most are fake, it is going to be very interesting to see what the experts say, cool item! I will stay tuned.

    The ring looks more like some kind of trench art than it does a mass produced ring. Possibly a ring made by an HJ member or an HJ members father for him? Like WW2relichunter said, the swastika is an old symbol that was around waaayy before the Nazis came around. I have seen tiles with swastikas and porcelain handles for valves with the swastika on them as well.

    I doubt this has anything to do with The Third Reich. Theres nothing particularly Nazi about the design and its of crude quality.

    I agree with the above. Often the snake in jewelry form represents long life and the swastika good luck. So this ring could have been given to a child wishing them many years of good fortune.

    Mark.

    I agree that there is no evidence that this ring has any connection with the 3rd Reich, especially the Hitler Jugend.

    There was never an American Nazi Party in the USA during WW2. It would have been banned and it's members treated as hostile aliens. You may be referring the the German American Bund that existed in the USA before the war. By the time Hitler decalared war on the USA, it was long gone. Their headquarters was a tavern and meeting hall on N. Western Av. in Chicago in the center of the German American community.
