    Ger that is a good looking ring.....I love how you have taken time out to find out all that information, I think that adds to the ring...makes it come alive a little..excellent work well done from the UAE.. Cheers Terry.

    fakes are showing up, they look pretty decent, but comparing it with the original, they can be spotted easily, when you know where to look!
    Please contact me if any of you are offered one, send me the pictures and i will examine the Ring for you.

    Regards,
    Ger

    This is the down side of posting good photos of rare and high end pieces. The faker's antennas immediately go up....

    One potential saving grace is considering the rarity of these pieces if the market suddenly has several appearing, questions will be asked and the rings scrutinised.

    Well Gents,

    i came accross a fake honour ring at an auction catalogue in Germany where the ring has been on auction.
    They assumed it was an Original, but after having doubts about its originality they took it out off the auction and sent it back to the owner.

    Here's the story in a nutshell:
    in december 2012 a couple of pics where sent to me by a well known German militaria dealer who claimed to have found another Honour ring.
    This happend after i sent him in june 2012 a couple of high detailed pics with the question if he had encountered a ring like this, i was looking for any info and contacting dealers seemed a good way to start at that moment.

    Well you all know by now i got the info needed from Dr G. Stemmler who had an article released about the Honourrings of Frankfurt and he provided me with detailed archive info, so it was possible for me to get the proper documents from the Frankfurter archives.

    Here are a few pictures of the fake ring, note the low details, wrong use of materials, but most of all its clear to see that the engraving has been machine made.
    Also note the center point of the machinebank on the RAD swastika wheel.....
    I will keep futher details where this fake lacks in detail etc to myself, i think i revealed already a lot in this post here.
    But be sure, laying next to mine this one is a poor fake.
    Here are the pictures so this ring is in fact useless to the seller who thinks a reserve of 6500 euro was well worth making it....
    Cheers,
    Ger

    Hi Ger Congratulations..and also with a detailed description . This great find should now throw all other fakes in the trash claiming authentic.

    Well known dealers need to be on alert that their integrity is at stake....messing around and having these rings duplicated. It does catch up eventually .

    That dealer should be black listed. That's absurd to send a supposedly reputable dealer pictures and Lo and Behold! Suddenly he finds one that is of questionable workmanship...That's blatant fraud and attempted theft-and especially at the high price being asked. There really needs to be laws enforced with people like this.

    Good God, look at the crude cast surface and the hideous cartoony eagle...just ridiculous...

    Default Good detective work

    Ger, Thanks to you some unsuspecting collector did NOT wind up with this high end fake ! These are the types of things that make me sick-you send detailed pics of a very rare item to a supposedly legit dealer for review and he contracts a fake from your pics??? Thank god for this forum and collectors like you!!
