    Default Tunis ring with hallmark.

    Inspired by a recent post that stated most North African rings of WW2 vintage were hallmarked I thought I would post one I have in my collection. Dated 1943 it could of course be made for either Axis or Allied forces. The hall mark is pretty hard to see and doesn't really come out well in the photo but under magnification it is clearly a moors head.

    Mark.

    And for future reference here are the relevant moors head hallmarks for the period. Images taken from the excellent on line hallmarks encyclopaedia.

    Thank you. Glad you like it. The Mosque and palm trees seems to be a very popular design.

    That is exactly what one should expect to find on an authentic period Tunisian trench art ring. Lovely piece, thanks for sharing!
