Hmm, is the skull hollow? And do you have better pics of the stamps? Looks like a 900 and then two that are hard to make out. It might be ok, an early ring or an Austrian piece. The skull appearance is definitely much more anatomical and mean looking than the odd caricatures expected of 1920s and 1930s rings. Small size? Lightweight or heavier?

Johan- i would request some better Pictures from the seller if it is an item you are considering for purchase. If the seller refuses, walk away. Otherwise those at least are descriptions of good hallmarks. The one I was looking at in particular was the head stamp, meaning the bear or boar or however it was described. There are lots of silver stamping guides out there- they will give information on content marks, maker marks, import/export stamps, and even date hallmarks. You could have many of these going on there- get better pics and research it. Also if you can see if thereís a solder line alon the skull edge- sometimes these were separated/joined right before the attach spot, like a long seam that was closed along the skull too by the jeweler. These would be light and hollow skulls, often showing signs of damage from the slightest bump. This isnít an exclusive manufacturing tell or qualification, solid rings exist- but itís helpful to see if thatís what you have!

No, thatís a different manufacturer altogether. I have two of those ones on the far left- theyíre often overlooked as kantinenringe. IF you have a good piece, itís likely early- 20s/ interwar- and Austrian, German, etc- all had these. Maybe they were military related as vets and freikorps, sa men had them. But they could be memento mori- very popular pre ww2. Many were small, like kids rings even. But you need to get better pics for sure
