    Default Polish ring 1940

    Hi guys;

    A friend of mine, found this ring while he was searching with a metal detector in Nottinghamshire/ England...
    It is 1940 dated (19 on one side and 40 on the other) and in the front stands Jerusalem
    Knows someone more about this kind of rings and the value to it?

    Many thanx so far!
    Kind regards,

    Hello Pieter,

    Nice find! I can't offer you much in terms of value (not something that we focus on here) but I can shed some light on what it is. This is most likely souvenir of a Pole stationed in the Middle / Near east, probably an ex POW freed from Soviet captivity who made his way west along with the Polish 2nd Corps. The "Krzyż Jerozolimski" (Jerusalem Cross) is the arms of Kingdom of Jerusalem founded by the Crusaders. This 5-cross motif found its way onto various different items produced for and by the Poles symbolizing an observant Roman Catholic Pole's pilgrimage to the Holy Land, with the Medal Pielgrzyma (Pilgrim Medal) being the most prominent item. Iíve posted some of these items below.

    Medal Pielgrzyma (Pilgrim Medal) - issued in three grades, bronze, silver and gold:

    Hi Alex,

    Not much I can really add as far as information other than I like the look of this one. It stands out against the sea of fake Polish soldiers rings that are flogged on line. Thanks for sharing it with us . Am I seeing correctly that the eagle is in gold?

    Regards,
    Tony
