SSJEWEL SSJEWEL #33735C SS Silver Fitted Watch Fob
This SS Silver Fitted Watch Fob is one of the most fantastic relics I have seen. It is an absolute eye catcher and extremely rare. I have never seen another one. The watch fob has a black satin lined strap. Fitted at the top of the strap is a silver bracket with ring which is stamped, “800” on both sides. At the top of this bracket is a small chain with a silver snap clip. The original wearer’s watch would have connected to this snap clip. The strap has a beautiful silver device which runs freely up and down the strap. The slide portion features a set of SS runes within a ring. This depiction is on both sides of the strap. At the lower portion of the strap there is a silver ring with another small ring which connects to a medallion about the size of a fifty-cent piece. This medallion is identical on both sides and is marked, “900” on the bottom edge. In the center of the medallion is a raised out skull and crossbones. The detail to the skull and crossbones is extraordinary with the blank eyes looking straight at the viewer and the jaw turned slightly down with the teeth tending to snarl at the viewer. There is a border with double rims around the medallion which has a raised SS motto, “Meine Ehre heisst Treue”. At the bottom of the rim is a raised mobile swastika. The effect of this watch fob is really unbelievable. Everyone you show it to will be amazed at its look. I don’t know who would have worn a watch fob like this in the SS but I could certainly see it being worn by a high up official. This is by no means a trinket and is beautifully made. If you are looking for the ultimate in SS jewelry this item would make for a fantastic display. Once acquiring this fob it would be worth looking for some kind of a quality watch which would also be associated with the SS through perhaps an engraving. A great item here which comes with a certification from well known dealer and friend Gailen L. David. Gailen states in the certificate of authenticity that the fob is the second one that he has seen in thirty-five years and that it is extremely rare. The certificate of authenticity from Gailen comes with the watch fob. A really great item here, expensive but virtually one of a kind and a real highlight for a sophisticated SS collection.

SSJEWEL SSJEWEL #33736 Set of Five SS / FM Membership Pins
This set of five membership pins is absolutely outstanding. Three of the pins are the stickpin type and two of them are the style with pin back. Each one of the FM membership pins is in choice condition with no flaws to the enamel. They feature a black ellipse with silver beaded border. The center area is all black enamel with a silver mobile swastika having black SS runes superimposed over the center of the swastika. At the lower legs of the swastika are the initials of the organization, “F”, “M” respectively. The reverse of each of the pins is marked, “Ges. Gesch.” as well as the maker, “Dreschler München”. Also each pin has its own member’s number appearing on the surface. These medals are very difficult to find and this set of five are sold as a unit. We can not break them up so please do not ask. These SS / FM membership pins are a great investment. The FM membership was a fund raising group for the benefit of the SS. These pins will make a great addition to any SS collection and are outstanding to display next to an SS dagger or some other SS memorabilia.

SSJEWEL #34876 Silver Plate presented to SS-Obergruppenführer Udo von Woyrsch
This silver plate is a very nice, high quality item, that measures just under ten inches round. It has a triple lined border, with a deeper section in the middle. Engraved in the center is a set of SS runes between double circles. The runes are shaded for effect. Professionally engraved in a circle around the runes is “SCHWANOWITZ, 7. OKTOBER 1939 SS-OBERGRUPPENFUHRER d. WOYRSCH”. The name “Schwanowitz” refers to the estate that was owned by Udo von Woyrsch. Von Woyrsch was a notorious SS officer that was a personal friend of Himmler. He was a member of the Freikorp during the 1920’s and became an SS member early on. He was quickly promoted, and was active in organizing the SS in the Gau Silesia. By 1935, he had already achieved the rank of SS Obergruppenfuhrer. In September 1939, Woyrsch commanded Einsatzgruppen, specifically charged with, and adept at terrorizing and murdering the Jewish population of Poland. The brutality of this Einsatzen group was such that it outraged Wehrmacht officers, who interceded with the Gestapo to have it withdrawn. Von Woyrsch was charged as a war criminal, and received 20 years imprisonment, but was released early. Von Woyrsch was also one of the few high up SS officers who received the special Damascus birthday degen from Himmler. Quite an infamous SS man here, and an interesting plate given to him for reasons unknown. The silver plate is hallmarked on the reverse, “FREY. SOHNE. BRESLAU” along with a crescent Prussian crown “830”, and a Prussian eagle. Additionally, the plate is stamped on the opposite reverse rim, “2151” “250”. An excellent opportunity here to own an artifact owned by an infamous SS Gruppenfuhrer.

SSJEWEL #33948C SS Honor Ring
This SS Honor ring comes with a Don Boyle certification. The ring has a fairly good outside. The skull shows some nominal wear but most of the nose and a portion of the teeth are still quite visible. The runic symbols around the ring are still all there and the bottom runic is mostly worn off but there are some vague signs of it still being in place. The ring is inscribed internally, “S.lb.Wielinger 9.11.40 H.Himmler”. Boyle states in the certificate that, “Ring is textbook with harder rarer date 9.11.40”. The ring was presented to SS-Untersturmführer Hans Wielinger. Wielinger was in the SD before the war. He was an Austrian who was born in Graz with SS number 307496. During the war he served in the Third SS Infantry Regiment 4. He was killed during the war on 31.1.42. The ring comes with a fairly large dossier which does not include Wielinger’s war record but this most likely could be easily researched. There are many applications to the various SS organizations including one from the Reichsführer-SS Race and Resettlement Bureau. There are also pictures of Wielinger and I must say he does not look to be a very pleasant man. An interesting ring here and lots more research to do by the next owner.

SSJEWEL #28928C Silver Hitler Medallion Ring
This silver ring is completely patinated to a dark black color. The ring has a medallion about the size of a dime affixed to the center. The medallion portrays Hitler looking to the left. The Führer has his usual studious and somber look on his face. To the left of the Führer, in block letters running around the edge of the medallion raised out is “Adolf Hitler”. Behind Hitler’s head, there is a raised mobile swastika. An interesting ring here that probably was sold as a campaign souvenir. The quality though is pretty good throughout and appears to be of all silver, despite it not being marked.

SSJEWEL #28927c War Merit Cross-style Ring
This ring appears to be made of zinc or pot metal and it is plain throughout except at the top where it has an applied miniature insignia resembling a war merit cross with swords. The center area though, instead of a swastika, has a head of a goddess. This may mean that medal is for some other country other than Germany, but if it is I do not know the pedigree. Someone out there that wants the ring may very well know its correct identification.
SSJEWEL #30927C WWI "Thank You" Ring
This WWI ring appears to be made of nickel material. Around the circumference of the ring in capital letters is “1914 VATERLANDS DANK”. This basically means “Thanks to the Fatherland 1914”. I do not know what the reason for this would be, unless it may have been a ring given as a thanks for turning in gold or silver for the war effort. Either way, it is a nice looking item that is not marked internally.
