THIRD REICH DEATHS HEAD RING.

THIRD REICH DEATHS HEAD RING.

As part of an original souvenir/bring back selection of items. This original nickel silver Deaths Head ring was amongst the bunch. Well defined details, and well made this has been worn a lot and is quite worn. Looking at it carefully it could have once had precious stones inserted into the eye sockets, but am not certain. These types of rings were very popular with members of the SS and many versions existed. Good display item with insignia etc.

MOST UNUSUAL SOUVENIR EARLY LUFTWAFFE BROWN BELT A

MOST UNUSUAL SOUVENIR EARLY LUFTWAFFE BROWN BELT A

I have seen this very clever type of work done with German WW2 leather belts before, but have never owned one. This has either been done by the original owner, perhaps as a POW, or done by the veteran who bought this back as a souvenir. This is an early brown leather Luftwaffe OR’s or NCO’s belt, along with the early 1st type buckle with ‘droop tailed’ Luftwaffe eagle. At some time the original interior retaining bar, for the male part of the buckle, has come off, and a twisted wire system has been installed to hold the belt hook, and it works very well indeed! The belt is amazing! Without cutting the ends it or damaging it in any way, the belt leather has been split into 3 strips and then platted the whole length! I have absolutely no idea how they have done this and it looks fantastic. Certainly very out of the ordinary, all 100% original but craftily re-worked to give it a different appeal.
