    Question SS Totenkopf Ring: Real or Fake Example?

    A friend of mine saw this for auction and got very excited and me as well, but I am pretty skeptical since these are so high-end and scarce. Are there any totenkopf honor ring people on here that can offer some feedback on this piece?

    Thanks,
    Adam

    Not a good one in MHO.
    The skull is to sqaure at the top and the nose and eyes are wrong.
    Also to me it seems as if this ring is a little weider than a original.
    Never seen one with this name engraved (thats a change from the Kruger one!).
    Maybe if you run the name through google in combination with SS ring more of these will come up.

    Thanks for the feedback, guys and sorry I couldn't do that research on my own first. I was highly skeptical myself but this was selling at a high end auction house and I believe some unknowing person probably paid the price and suffered (whether they know it or not).
    Thanks to you all and to this collegial forum for supporting one another in educating ourselves and collecting authentic pieces.

    All the best,
    Adam
