    I certainly wont be selling it as it still has value to me, and it was in fact purchased postwar in 2007 in Budapest.

    Thanks again everyone for your interest and responses -- even the patronizing ones

    "This was given to me by a Hungarian man whose brother was in the SS, which leads me to not want to be quick to dismiss it as a fake."

    So....this has been some sort of Game?

    You lost the thread somewhere; let me clarify:

    A Hungarian man whose brother was in the SS purchased the pictured ring in Budapest in 2007 at a flea market and gave it to me that same year as a gift. Therefore even though everyone here has assessed it as a fake it still has value to me as a gift, which is why I won't be selling it.

    BigGlen has it pegged correctly. No RZM should be seen at all. fantasy

    In response to your PM, my brief comment simply means that you
    as the owner of this ring, seem to be hopelessly clinging to the
    'It just HAS to be original' theory, when in fact it is
    a modern fanasy piece.

    $30 or less on the open market, and I'm being generous.........
    Regards,


    Steve.

    A genuine, infinitely more valuable ring, purchased direct from the digger who found it, with nary a flea market in sight...

    I can give You 100% guarantee it is a modern fake. How I can be so sure about it? Well, I have seen just too many such rings - they are made in Latvia, Russia and also Estonia. There are at least 20-30 different designs, maybe even more. And the story about the "brother of a SS-man" is also pretty funny. My relatives were also in Waffen SS but if I will buy a fake ring from the local fleamarket this fact does not make it an original:-)

    Didn't the OPmsay the the old SS gent bought this ring postwar? I don't think the OP is under the misunderstanding it's a period ring, the fact the SS gent gave it to him is what makes it a special item for him, not the fact that its a period piece....it is a post war fantasy piece bought many years after the war by a SS veteran and given to the OP as a gift...

    Well that's how I read it
