Hello, I found your picture of the original ring. I have exactly the same one, it was found 1945 in the forest together with other German army stuff when they were running out from the Czech republic, stealing civil clothes... But the ring does not seem to be silver, has no numbers etc inside and the metal is darker and less heavy than silver. Can you help, is it SS ring or what? There is no way it is a copy. Thank you.

From your description and the color of the material it could be a cink example.
But this material is very corrosive.
Maybe some backside shots possible?
Really? Why is that?
I have never seen this particular skull ring made of zink or lead as this one appears to be of. Could it possibly be a piece that was intended to be silver plated but never was? And,oddly, it's of a gigantic size. But, in answer to your question-although it, as any other skull design, Could have been worn by an SS man, there is nothing that holds it exclusively to Only the SS. Anyone could have worn it-including even civilian. I, too, would like to see any maker marks or stampings on the interior.

You are most definately right. It is not a copy, it is an original fake!
Another reputedly original SS ring that is trash!
