    That's a 30's style ring, there are many, many differences between the two. It was made from a completely different master carving for a start, there's no real comparison when put side by side.

    Regards, Ned.

    I have no opinions either way. I know very little about honor rings.
    My wife says the only ring I have is the brown one around my neck from having my head stuck in my butt for so long.

    No problemo nova! These rings are fiendishly difficult to certify anyway as all were hand finished by different craftsmen at Otto Gahr's facility over the years they were produced. Therefore there is a broader aspect that must be considered. Most fakes are easy to spot, but some are good and getting better! That's why there are only really a handful of real experts out there like Don Boyle, who have handled many different rings going back years, that makes their opinion unempeachable.

    On the other hand, I have had one original in hand, and Don and Gottlieb's (yes, I know...) books to go on, that's all!

    Here is what Craig Gottlieb said:

    The ring appears to be original. Here is some information on your ring:

    1) Where the veteran got it is of no concern to the value.
    2) 1944 dates are not uncommon.

    I would be interested, but the ring market has all but collapsed. I still have a few rings on my website that I cannot move without losing money. Reason for the collapse: not only the economy, but rings experienced a "bubble" of sorts and increased in price, over the past 10 years, by about 1000%. Also, the prevalence of fakes in the past few years has shaken market confidence.

    Hmm.

    The cynic in me is reading between the lines and translating as:

    "I am interested and will offer you a very low price but still mange to bump it to a very high price when I list it for sale. I'm doing you a favour you know....."
