    Know to some as Canteen Rings , these were sold at soldier canteen etc . I believe in both wars , they have no SS connection .

    Nearly all this rings are privat purchase.
    Of course a lot of them was baught and worn by military and SS too.
    As Chris told right in both wars.
    This one is from the pattern a known old piece and from style of skull and bones more a memento mori ring.
    But of course worn by soldiers too.
    In this condition i think it is impossible to say wether period or a aged fake.
    Don`t give a lot o money if you want to buy it.

    If you are asking, are they original? The answer for that would be "Most likely", but if you are looking to purchase them with the concept that they are WWII SS rings, then I would have to say "No". The skull rings came in countless varieties and were worn by all branches of the German military-as well as by any number of Other countries as well, such as Russia and Poland, and many more. And, do not forget, that they were very popular amongst the Civilian population also. Unfortunately, the condition that these pieces you have posted are in, they are almost worthless and would be considered, at best, curios.

    Glad I could help , there are many examples of private purchase SS Runic rings . And some are even WWII , but so many are fake . It makes it not worth collecting in my mind . I'd believe a Runic ring was real if I found it in the Vets sock drawer myself , the only Real SS Ring are the Honour Rings . This Rarity is reflected in the Price !
