    Thumbs up Norway Banak Ring - Help!

    Hello all, I've been offered this by my friend. Looks good to me. Although it's pretty light, perhaps made of Zinc or Aluminium(?), the detailing is very good with corresponding wear in all the right places. What are your thoughts? I've done a bit of digging and found info about the Banak Luftwaffe air base and it's role in the Norge campaign, but I can't seem to find much about this ring (although this shield design did exist!). Has anyone seen this design before or know why this ring would have been issued/produced? All opinions welcomed! Cheers, skip01.

    Sorry about the pics, they are all I have!

    Ouch....
    Difficult question. Its always depending on what it is worth for you.
    Here in Germany between collector i would say 150 to 200 €. Dealer prices about twice of this.
