    As said, except for the A.H. 5M coin, the gold plated coin,
    the gold plated bar and the ring, everything else
    looks good.........
    Regards,


    Steve.

    The 1935 Hitler RM is a well known fantasy coin. Apparently, it came as close as being "intended" but never produced. Hitler forbade his likeness on coins and currency, but Did allow it to be used on Postage stamps.

    The real expert is Robin Lumsden the UK based British Author and collector. Don Boyle and Craig Gottleib also worth looking at but this area of collecting is a minefield as some recent and early post war copies are very good. Real Totenkopfrings are rarely sold on and even ones bought by museums for display can be wrong believe it or not! As they were made almost completely of Silver they were naturally very soft and hence worn in combat the markings were easily worn away. Hence beware minty, fresh looking examples! The SS wanted to wear this decoration as they wore their Medals badges and IK's.
