SS TK Ring with Weird Engraving

Article about: Hi guys, does this one here stand a chance? I personally find the engraving/inscription around the outer edge phony, but what do you say?

    Some more shots of my swastika ring. Getting better shots but boy is it hard to get focus and reduce shine/reflection.

    Now every little pock-mark this macro photography shows has me thinking 'gas porosity'? I think whatever such marks are on the face of this ring are from the soldering of the gold swastika to the silver ring face. Obviously it couldn't be die struck with the swastika.

    It looks strange due polish. Ring is relic and after looks like new. So why you have mixed feelings

    Hi Glenn, no worries, it looks great, nice pictures, as it always happens these ítems look much better when you have them with you

    Have you tried by daylight? I think that gives best results... and how about inside the band? Any pittings there?

    Glenn if I wanted to be totally sure then I'd post real good close up shots over on GDC: Hapur is a ring maker who uses both the die struck method and casting, and he can recognize a cast ring probably better than anyone...

    No nothing. The internal shots have been shown in earlier posts.

    I try to learn from all these posts....I think I picked a little up concerning all the rings discussed in this thread.

    I don't think any ring is going to Odal?
