    I Know there are many fakes of these ... but I dont think its a fantasy... Ive seen this "style" ring in a book... I'm not saying this is real.. but can someone shed some light on if there is one "like" this that is real.

    This is a modern fantasy design as already stated.

    Cheers, Ade.

    First of all, this particular ring: The lightning rune stamp on the outside, the extreme poor detail of the eagle, the crooked sloppiness of the swastika, rough finished interior and just the overall poor quality of any and all details point to a very bad copy from modern times. Truthfully, in all the years I have collected such things, I have never seen an actual and genuine ring of this design. We began seeing these styles as early as the 70's and today, the Eastern Europeans are making a cottage industry of making copies-both pre-aged and not- of countless styles of SS rings(and others as well) and a Very high number of the styles seen never existed at all in real life. This is, I believe, aside from the ludicrous number of fake skull rings, one of the most commonly seen of the "SS" rings. William

    Well...if you move the decimal point over 3 places to the left...it might be closer-depending on how much weight of Silver it has in it(assuming it's real silver and not a plated piece...lol) William

    It is a fantasy ring. Be careful - there are some 2-3 more versions, all made by a same faker. PS. Good news is - they are made of silver:-P So if silver prices will keep rising it can still be a good investment.
