    Hey there. Just joined. I received a gift from my mother today, a ring she purchased at an estate sale. The previous owner was a Latvian gentleman. My mother suspected the ring was russian made. All my research this morning points to German fascist pre-nazi. If that makes sense.

    I wanted throw it out to you experts. Has anyone seen something like this before.

    It is Estonian Defence League (Kaitseliit) ring. If it is original, it is probably made before 1940. Is there a silver mark 875 with a lion inside of the ring band?

    Thank you for the information. There is an 875, but not a lion.

    Seems to be original pre WWII made ring. A nice find but nothing to do with WWII or Germany.

    Agreed. Looks to be period and good, but not TR or wartime related. A nice ring! I like the look of it!
