WW2 Skull ring real or fake?

Article about: \\$6150 US for a decent Honour ring is not bad at all! Harmel's ring is "Price on Request",though,I see...one can only imagine what it must cost... William

    Thanks.

    Sorry Mike, but I have never seen a tr ring such as this. Sadly, I believe the history is it was produced in East Europe to fool collector. I hope I'm wrong, others shall comment soon too.

    Simply another silver skull ring - Ebay is flooded with them ! - Hard to imagine
    that when someone pays $30 to $100 they think they have a genuine Third
    Reich example. (No previous research !) The problems lie in direct copies
    of original rings - made to deceive.

    In the hands of unscrupulous dealers, the above types could be passed off
    as WWII era pieces, but this particular design is just too modern.........!
    Regards,


    Steve.

    Sorry Mike, As Steve said, this exact type of ring is omnipresent on eBay. Almost always, the seller is blatantly lying and saying that it's a WWII German ring, which it is definitely not. If nothing else, the cartoonish design should be an instant red flag. I spoke awhile back with one of the German eBay sellers of rings like this and all the other silly looking little skeleton ones, etc etc, and he openly admitted finally that they came from his supplier in an un-nameable country to the East.(I get yelled at if I dare to mention the name outloud here...) They artificially age them by applying a coating that resembles heavy tarnish and age patina but is easily removable if desired. Beneath this coating, you'll usually find a pristine new ring.

    There is usualy an .800 under the ring in the middle or on the right side, It looks like an early model SS ring, but it is fake
