    1970's Biker Ring.
    If it was really silver, the finish wouldn't have worn off like it did.

    to my knowledge its what they call the rings that troops could buy during the war, but were never issued (e.g. unlike the ehrenrings) they could simply be purchased by soldiers.

    Yes I have heard of the term "Canteen Rings", sold at soldiers canteens.
    Usually skulls etc but without being an official issue item.
    I believe Westwall rings are also referred to as Canteen Rings.

    As a general rule, about 95% of rings that do not resemble this have nothing to do with WWII, the SS or the NSDAP.

    Even those which resemble the above, over 70% are copies... Collecting rings is a dangerous business.

    I'd say more around 90% of Honour Rings are fake, rings are a true minefield of collecting.
    Here is my very worn Canteen Ring, cheaply made hollow backed, not sure if the band split or was unsized.

    ‘Die Kantine’ is German for ‘the canteen’. ‘Kantine-Ringe’ were unofficial rings of several different designs (skulls, Westwall, swastikas, etc.) that were available in field canteens and other areas, including shops, for military and other Third Reich personnel. Anyone in fact.

    The ring posted here is, unfortunately a postwar piece as noted by the other guys.

    Cheers,

    Stephen
