Adolf hitler's "lost" ruby and gold swastika ring

Article about: I once handled a ruby swastika ring that came through the auction of kent arm sales and it was a very much better ring than that one,and it was wearable.this was back in the early 70s.

    I bet Mr Hitler "liked" the beautiful pink coloures of the stones...

    Does anyone know where or what happened to his iron cross?
    I believe a Norwegian collector has one of them

    I'd prefer the cross instead of the ring

    Now that really would be something worth having. Would there be any way of distinguishing it as hitlers or is it purely based on a trail of provenance?

    From what i have read the cross was put in a museum in Hitlers home town during the war.

    The Norwegian collector bought it from said museum...git

    Sometimes single items of provenance seen for the first time is hard to prove. This ring would be a good addition to the "Fact or Fiction" thread. It is possible that this ring and other junk type gifts to the fuhrer... Was just tossed in Hitlers junk drawer. I like the thick gold chain idea the best and putting the ring on it.
    The way Hitler dressed was very modest with no homeboy skull rings and wristwatches the size of a TV set. Sepp Dietrich was reprimanded for wearing his custom made sword. Even that sword showed some amount of vanity.

    Wow, I'd call that pretty good provenance! It would certainly be a fantastic thing to have and with that kind of provenance a very good investment you'd think. I imagine that bloke could pretty much ask whatever he wanted for that particular cross and would almost be guaranteed of a buyer.

    I agree, such ostentatious bling would seem to be out of character unless the modest dress was part of his —humble man of the people—public PR image only? Stalin cultivated a similar outward visual impression of the simple man, as did Mao Zedong.
