    Crap photos from a seller are a prime indicator that they are trying to hide something. Regardless of that, the skull and crossbones design is a dead giveaway on a supposed honour ring.

    Yep Landbeforebosh...Anyone who cannot give a nice close up view of an items details is hiding something. You are wise to steer clear.

    In addition to all that has been said above, allow me one more observation:

    For all the lousy quality of the photographs, one can still make out that the ring bears a silver content marking on the inside. Genuine SS Honor Rings never had silver content markings, nor did they have RZM markings or maker's marks. The presence of any of those is enough to tell a ring is fake.
