Rather rare pattern. And from this pics for me an original period one.
Originals of this pattern are allways brass with silver plating.
I have this pattern too in a nearly as new condition.
Only a few ring patterns have the "Ges. Gesch."...."Gesetzlich Geschützt" (protected by law or pat. pending).
This one not. From the row of battle of britain rings i know in moment only one pattern with this inscripition.
Agreed-an Extremely heavily faked pattern and one of the oldest of the copies, but this one looks to be an actual period piece. Nice to see a real one!
"Much that once was, is lost. For none now live who remember it."
Thanks for the response guys I'm glad I confirmed my thoughts on this item. Nice example of the ring, Odal. This particular design looks great both original and heavily worn!
