    Hello and welcome to the forum!
    Please post some photos directly to the site and avoid any outside photo hosting sites, you can post multiple pictures in your post. No-one will be able to help without seeing the item in question. There is a ring known as a Deaths Head ring which was given to SS Officers however these are relatively rare, very expensive and widely copied. Also, any type of ring with a Deaths Head is generically referred to as an 'SS Officers Ring' based purely on the fact a Deaths head must equal SS.
    It could be anything from a '70s biker ring to a privately purchased contemporary ring which just happens to be a similar design, the possibilities are endless.
    I'll move the thread to the more appropriate forum.

    Thanks for helping
    Not very cool when it cost $875 and guaranteed its authenticity

    I would suggest a refund, this is a fantasy ring, not worth $875 by any stretch of the imagination and definitely not of the period.

    I'm sorry to say but similar rings are sold for $40-50 on ebay.com every day. There are also some rings with SS runes instead of Totenkopf from the same producer. I'm not 100% sure but I belive these rings are actually produced in Latvia or Russia. As there are really very many fake rings on the market maybe we really need a "sticky" topic to post pics of all fakes we know. There are new designs every year, for example the latest fake I saw was Ahrenerbe ring, not badly made and offered for $299.
