Default Original SS honor ring

A clear fake , originals range from $2000 to tens of thousands USD approx , depending on condition and recipient, check out the SS section for some advice worth knowing

Always get us to check it out for you , before purchase , disregard any COA from sellers , remember, Believe the item not the story ,

Highly regarded trusted moderator Antonio occasionally has some for sale

Good luck

I don’t think you can find any original Honor rings for $2000.00 nowadays. Even a totally worn out ring starts at no less than $3000.00 or above. The cheapest one I saw at the last Max show was $6500.00, and that was pretty worn out. The most expensive one was around $75,000.00 (owned by a top SS general) offered by Wolfe-Hardin.

Hell no I bet it didn't sell for that. How many guys got that kind of money to spend on a ring that just sits on a shelf. All of his stuff is top of the line top of the price items. He has the same stuff at SOS every year. Mite be a dozen collectors in the world who can buy from him.

The Bach-Zelewski ring sold for 26,000.00 euros which is about $32,000.00 US dollars. The Wolfe-Hardin ring at the Max show was part of a grouping which included some award documents, photographs and medals belonging to the same SS General which I can’t remember his name. No idea if it sold or not. I do remember that CG was also there looking at it while I was there.
