    Doesn't look good with Hohenstaufen stuck on the inner, if it was 9 SS Panzer Div i'm sure the SS would come into somewhere if it were wartime so at best postwar .The photos of the inner engraving are very poor !! , HG maybe it's supposed to be Herman Goring Div !!

    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.

    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    I belive it is just an original pre 1945 ring with monogram but has nothing to do with military. Such rings were very popular in 1920-30-ies and as we all know most of German men were in the army so now wonder previous owner of that ring was also in Waffen SS, Luftwaffe or elsewhere. But we do not have any proof it was so.

    For One thing,the seller(of the Panzer HG ring) is in Poland,and I trust Nothing coming out of Poland these days-the entire country seems to be a virtual fake war relic factory. It is done in the 30-40's style and may even be a direct copy of an original someone found somewhere,but I wouldn't touch it. As for the Polish ring,I don't particularly like it either. It shows fairly heavy wear inside and out,but the inner inscription-which you would logically figure would take the brunt of the most wear,being silver and all-is totally clear and legible. That,and the fact that both sellers list an enormous number of rings constantly as well as some ridiculously fake garbage as well,would make me run from both these guys. Today,with the fakers out there like they are,cranking out thousands every year,about the only way that you can buy a wartime ring with peace of mind,is if you have a bulletproof history to it. Rings are just too desirable and are always open to massive counterfeiting. Be careful if you are serious in finding a decent one-they're out there,but you run through a minefield to get to them.

    Unless I had a couple of grand to spend on a documented original, I would stay
    away from ALL of these ebay rings. Original TR/SS rings are rare and
    expensive - everything else is 99% crap............!
