    Default Wehrmacht Ring

    I've watched the forum ring posts for a while as they interest me, and I've noticed it seems like the majority of rings we see are questionable at best. So, I honestly wouldn't dare put a dime on a ring without vetting it here as it seems almost as easy to get fooled on rings as it is with SS stuff.

    This one came up for sale today at $235. I thought it might be one similar to something authentic I've seen posted here, but I can't find it for the life of me. Does this one seem like it might have a chance?

    Thank you all!!

    I'm guessing from comments about build construction in regards to many other rings shot down on this forum that this one has a good chance of being a modern fake, though I could be totally wrong.

    I don't remember too many good rings posted here except for a few ground dug and cleaned up.

    it seems almost as easy to get fooled on rings as it is with SS stuff.
    Hmmm... especially SS rings!

    As I look on the net at way too much stuff during the course of any given day, I can't help but notice that you can buy a perfectly good SS honor ring for a little in excess of $2kUSD, and that the rings people show here for approval are probably not those rings.

    In other words, everybody (but me) wants one of these things, but doesn't want to shell out for a real one... hence a lot of looking and timewasting.

    Anyway, I hope you find a good one out there ;-)

    Thanks guys for the feedback.

    If this were a private purchase, I probably wouldn't have even bothered with it. But, it's from a dealer I've bought a few nice items from in the past so I thought it might be worth checking up on. I noticed as odal mentioned, it looks like it's made of a base brass or copper, as in the first photo along the top edge of the ring you can see where it's worn through to the base metal. The story is that it's out of a collection of WWII rings from Detroit. I don't know though, if it's questionable then that's what it is.

    If you have a photographic memory don't forget to take your lens cap off.

    If that is, indeed, Not solid silver and is a plated base coat metal ring, then I am not seeing anything that is saying that it's bad. As said, the design is good looking, but what looks to be 2 hallmarks inside the band could possibly be simply discoloration spots.
