A old pattern.
WWI but WWII of course still on the market.
There are different band and skull variants.
This pattern is always a 2 Piece one.
Skull seperate soldered on.
This rings are often and sometimes very well faked.
Originals should have a nice visible seam and clear
punched in marks.
With this pics it is hard to build a sure opinion.
As I sad I am sorry for pictures, but I am deffinitly sure that this is two piece ring .
And also the skull is a slightly different colour (not so visiable)
Here for comparing a plain band variant
made in the 30ies
It is similar to my ring but my has difrent markings (they are very clear) it is possible to be original?
Thank you for the answer
The hallmarks should be very clear and punched in with a die
This hexagon on your ring could be a austrian hallmark.
Sorry, with your not so good pics i don`t want to make a statement.
But be very careful, as told, very good fakes of this Patterns are around.
Thank you for your answer, I will take the ring to jeweler and he could tell me which markings are on the ring and if they are original (I think that is the MK mark a Russian mark (jeweler))- but not sure.
This is no eastern europe pattern.
And the hexagon should be the austrian "Tukan" 800 silver hallmark, started in 1922

Ok, thank you for that information - Than I will just ask(jeweler) if this is the mark printed in ring. (I will report how it goes). (Sorry for bad English)
