Better photos needed for sure Mark, I hope you are good with your iPhone!
Maxim, your ring is nice for sure, very interesting and no doubt rare.
Mark's ring-100 original,but no Panzer
On closer inspection of the above photos, it looks a lot like the skull has been bent to the right, or the observers' left. That might also explain the deformation of the tooth line...

I do not claim to be a ring expert altho I have several.
That said I do Not believe that this is anything more than a cheap "jewelry" ring of unknown origin. Nothing to do with either SS or Panzer and very possibly Not German!
I have never seen an original ring that does not have a complete band. This one looks like a kids ring made to squeeze together to fit a finger AND the skull is horrible!
We are all from WWF
There are experts here who have verified this ring already..
What is your quarrel wit it, only the band? Would you doubt that it's contemporary, ie from the WWII period?
