Default Ring FJ

Hi guys! How do you like this ring? I like, but your opinion is interesting. I know this is a very rare Luftwaffe paratrooper ring design.

a good well known 3rd reich pattern... They of course have been counterfeited over the years rather well.

This appears to be a nice well worn authentic ring...

Certainly another accepted variant. I like it as well.

Yes, I agree the wear looks natural, and unfortunately I agree that repros have been made which make it difficult for collectors.

Nice ring with veteran provenance Ric!
