Very interesting thread,
Live to ride -- Ride to live
I was addicted to the "Hokey-Pokey" but I've turned
I too owe you an apology , so many rings from a first time poster . I figured you were selling fakes , and I jumped to the wrong conclusion . Sorry if I made your introduction to the Forum not as welcoming as it should have been . Again Welcome
Im puzzled.The Swastika ring looks too good to be period (if You see what I mean).Obviously by the posts of approval it is genuine.Welcome to the forum and thanks for showing them to us.Youve taught Me something today
No worries, no harm done. 👍🏻
But no worries, no harm done.
Thanks for the welcome.
Part of the problem the ring experts on here have is trying to distinguish the good from the bad by looking at photographs,if they had the item in their hand life would be so much easier for them.Also there seems to be an abundance of modern day rubbish which is usually what they find they are looking at on here.It must be very frustrating at times.Again welcome aboard!!
You got that right my friend, I agree 100%. Trying to take good photos is hard. It's a art form. A ring in hand is always best. I'm sure I've passed up a real ring or two because the photography made things look like something it may not be. And people get frustrated when asked to take pics, then those don't work, then you ask for different angles and those are not any better. Then you get labeled a time waster yet you have a handful of cash to send them if you could just get the one perfect photo. It's a head game ha ha ha 🍻
The Ehrenring is a fine original dated 20.4. for Hitler's birthday, and the year 1937 is frequently found for this bestowal date and onwards until 1944, having been first used sparingly the previous year (1936). I believe that by the limited photo's available here, this may be the ring once owned by a chap named 'Adamik' and has been published elsewhere.
