    As requested by Glenn, here are more shots of the two rings I posted in the previous thread along with another chunky black one. I hope these photos are up to scratch.

    This one is sliver, as seen by the '830' hallmark

    This one is pretty beat up but it's still my favourite of the three. Looks evil! As you can see, it is indeed alpaca.

    First ring:
    I like it, looks struck and i have the same one. The band is art deco and would fit the period, but i can`t date it for sure.

    Second one:
    Usually made from and marked "GOLDIN", so careful with this one.

    Last one:
    I don`t like it.
    For me a new made ring

    Maybe, maybe not, who cares? Even today it still makes a cracking seal for use on funeral invitations....Mwhahaha.

    As for the 3 posted rings, I have to agree. I like the 1st 2, but have qualms on the 3rd. The Style of the ring is appropriate for the 30's and 40's era, but the table of the ring with the stamped black design may possibly have been a later addition. A difficult ring to figure.

    Does the alpaca ring have file marks to the face? That is curious as there is considerable 'wear' to the face. Perhaps artificial wear.

    The first ring I like but have to express the same concerns as others regarding the 3rd ring.

    Hi, the first , I must agree, ok, good one, the 2nd would be marked German silver,or some configuration of that, not alpaca, which is Mexican nickle silver. third, once again, not of the Reich. K

    Hard to tell just what the marking is on the non-silver one. It seems to be an abbreviation of "Alpaka" as "ALP" and 4 more letters. Alpaka was a very common metal used in the Third Reich era and even many of the Luftwaffe Honor Goblets were made and stamped of "Alpaka".

    "ALPACCA".....there were different writings for this alloy. This spelling was very common.
