    Default SS Ring - Thoughts?

    Hi there.



    I bought this ring in a little antique shop in Bulgaria. It looks old and worn. What're your thoughts on this piece. It's made of brass. Could this be an original SS ring or trench art?

    Hi there. Thanks for your reply. Was this a good buy at 20 pounds? Cheers!

    The construction is very troubling. It looks extremely crudely cast-both inside and out. It's almost as if someone who didn't know how to work with metals tried to make a cast copy of a ring they may have gotten. They would not have sold these roughly made rings to the troops in the cantines. Bulgaria has been making fake rings now for some time and this certainly looks to be one of them.

    I suppose it could be anything given the fact that there is little evidence to prove anything with great certainty.

    William said it, that ring is badly cast junk. Sorry to be blunt!....
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Well, if you get the 45 your asking on Ebay then not to bad a return for a bit of junk.

    I'd like to see the full photo of the WW2 Youth National Trade Competition 1944 Badge you have for sale too. Have you posted it here?

    Rgd's,
