    Default Totenkopf ring question.

    I know Third Reich rings can be a minefield for collectors but this one has me puzzled. It is meant to be a Totenkopf silver ring and is marked GES GESCH. I know that rings marked rzm etc are fakes but this is the first I have seen with this marking. Any thoughts chaps?

    Mark.

    It looks cast. cast = fake
    Gesetzlich Geschutzt (Ges. Gesch.) basically means patented or registered. It is added to a fake ring for the same reason that the fakers put SS runes inside them and RZM-to add "credibility" to their rubbish product.

    I wonder when the fakers are going to wise up and start spending a few dollars extra to make their garbage rings by Stamping rather than the el-cheapo method of Casting....

    Because less tha 1% of us actually are educated or seek out opinions from those who are.

    The other 99% blindly buy this stuff. So as long as they keep moving their merchandise why upgrade their methods.
