    Hello rod.. Looks a little "Off" to me... I'll explain my observations.... First... The "Swastika" probably shouldn't be there... I actually have a few of these rings... Second... The device or ??? Behind of the face of the ring look very odd IMO... Good luck...Gwar

    Rod, At one time it may have been... It just looks... "Messed With".. There were many or at least a few makers some were referred to as canteen rings and could be purchased quite cheaply... The one you display is marked .800 silver I believe that would have been a little more than the average wage at the time would allow and seeing as many I believe during the "West Wall" were locals ...RaD and the like.. Please don't quote me on that ...Only speculation at this point as I am tired... But please do some research and you will see.... Odal is the go to guy in this instance... TC... G

    Both here shown rings are fakes.
    The first one is a not so good cast copy of a period existing pattern.

    Usually the period ones a struck from brass and plated. The swas doesn`t belong to this pattern, also the "OT" inside.

    I think actual there is a good one in ebay, germany:

    Odal, The rings I posted were for visual effect of no SWAZ only... But thank you very much for clearing up this matter...G
