TK kantinen ring
I would like to read some more opinion on this ring i recently bought.
It looks ok to me, although well worn. However, I am aware these rings have been faked.
It is marked on the inside, although a bit faded, 835.
I've seen also 2 stars marked on the inside of these rings but on this sample they are not present.

Re: TK kantinen ring
macro detail of the marking. Maker marking is no longer readible
I would buy this one, myself...
I think very hard to impossible in this condition and only with pics to make a sure statement, so i would stay away.
Pattern is a rather common wwII skull and snake. Made by the Frey company. Hallmarks/marks are usually "835",
"F*" and the Laurin mark, a latin "Ln" in a half circle.
A lot of good fakes of this pattern are around. So be careful.
Skull Ring w/Snakes and Oakleaves
Heavy wear, but,
I like the ring also Matt.
Here's my skull and snake ring.
It's been resized and has no marks now.
The placement of the hall/proof mark on
your similar ring is in an unusual spot compared to most.
thanks for posting it!
