    Love them, Chris! I especially like the one you are wearing I'd wear it too. I had one of the EK rings with the date , but it was a post war make. Also, I stopped wearing it because it turned my finger green! It was marked '800' but I suppose it was mixed metal.

    Hi guys. Glad you liked them.
    If it was leaving a green colour behind then it wasn't silver for sure.

    Some real nice period rings!

    But - sorry - in the case of the skullring in answer no. 16 i have a different opinion.
    This pattern is the so called "gorilla head". A rather rare period pattern. It always was made of brass, silver plated, red paint in eyes or in a funny alloy nickel plated.
    No period ones in silver.
    The shown ring is in my opinion for sure a in silver cast fake.
    For comparison two quick pics of a proofed period one. You will see the differences.

    Hello Odal, thanks for your input. I don't know much about these skull rings but i am very interested to learn more. Mine and yours look very much the same but they have differences on the top part of the skull so it can't be a cast copy. Maybe a copy indeed but not a cast.

    Could it be another variant? I have seen many different patterns of period canteen rings.
    I have posted it here and it got mostly positive reviews. http://www.warrelics.eu/forum/third-...review-309377/
    Of course you are a ring collector and you know much more than me.

    Hi - no problem.
    No, no other variants.
    Your ring is the "gorilla head" ring
    And ist sure a cast fake - but from a heavy worn example - therefore (? sorry my bad english) are this differences.
    Again a pic off gorillaheads - band and skull are unique:
