    Question Need help identifying this Luftwaffe ring.

    Hello.
    I am new to antiques and my fathers friend gave my father this ring.
    Me and my father are curious and want to know its origins.
    In the inside of the ring there is written " veljekset sundqvist" which traslates from Finnish to brothers Sundqvist.
    I hope the pictures came out okay.

    Hi,

    Veljekset Sundgvist indeed was a famous maker of a lot of small items in Finland in WW2. However I don´t recollect them making these kind of rings. I´m very doubtful as to the design too so personally I would classify this ring as a reproduction or a fantasy item but wait for the experts for the "final" word on this item!

    Cheers Jan

    The diving eagle on the ring represents German paratroopers (Fallschirmjäger)... the eagles in flight on either side represent the German airforce (Luftwaffe).

    I'll warn you that rings are a very tricky area in this hobby. 99.9% are faked
