SSJEWEL #43178C Two Third Reich Vintage "Thor's Hammers"
The first of these Hammers is made of amber and retains the original tag. The piece measures about 1 ½ inches long, with a single "S" rune inscribed in the center. The amber is quite beautiful, with interesting internal colors. The original paper tag reads "N. B. I. Nord Deutsche Bernstein Industrie", "bernstein" being the German word for amber. The hammer has a fitting so it can be hung on a chain.
The second hammer is very heavy, being made of solid bronze. This hammer is nearly two inches long, decorated with a vaulted cross strap and what appears to be riveted hardware. The top of the hammer has a hole to accept a chain. You'd need a stout chain to wear this hammer as it is quite heavy.
Two very interesting and rarely seen pieces here.
SSJEWEL #42724C Private Purchase SS Ring
The ring is about a size 9. It features a raised oval with a set of SS runes in the center. The area around the runes has been embellished with line designs. On either side of the runes are silver oak leaves which contrast nicely with the gold, picked out with background darkening.
This ring shows some wear but retains almost all of the original detailing.
A good looking private purchase piece here.

SSJEWEL #43067C Cased Ring with Political Motif
The center of the ring is rectangular, bearing an Iron Cross with green enamel legs. In the center of the cross is an applied Political eagle, affixed with a rivet. The bird is a little different than most but has a good look about it. On the breast of the bird is a raised, immobile swastika. The edges of the ring are finished with floral patterns.
This ring is a size 7. It comes with what looks to be the original box, a green leatherette affair that shows some mild corner wear and lined in padded silk.
A great looking package here.
SSJEWEL #43066C Eastern Front Ring
It has a square center with a raised out rising sun with a mobile swastika over it. At the bottom is the word "Ostfront". There are no marking on this ring.
This ring looks to be about a size 12, and shows some minor wear and age. The details, however, remain quite clear.
An impressive period private purchase ring here.
SSJEWEL #42010C Political Style Wedding Ring
I'm guessing that it is a "Political" style ring, as it could have easily been worn by an SS man.
A very choice item here, mostly likely worn by a man given the size... although I suppose it could have been the property of a burly milkmaid.

SSJEWEL #42045C Luftwaffe Flight Instructor Ring with Bring-back Paper
This ring has real grandeur about it and appears to be of all nickel silver as it is not marked inside. The ring is about the size of a college class ring. In the center it has a double circle which has the words "Luftwaffe Ausrildungen" which I believe translates out to a flight instructor. In the center is a raised early style eagle clutching a swastika. On the left side of the ring is the raised out date 1941 and on the right side of the ring it pictures what appears to me to be an ME 109 airplane. The edges of the ring are all decorated with raised oak leaves. This ring is really great looking and shows only minor wear. It is about a size 10.
The ring also comes with its original bring-back paper which mentions the ring on the paper. The paper was given to "T5 Robert L. Pflanz" and is dated 27 August 1945. It is signed by the commanding officer. Apparently Pflanz also brought back "One German Knife One German Pistol P38 Serial Number 2646 with Holster: but apparently the vet most have sold those other items prior to the ring. At any rate this is a very very fine example and something that I feel is extremely collectible. It is a great looking ring!

SSJEWEL #42013C Silver Luftwaffe Ring
The sides of the ring are smooth and the eagle is set into a sort of a frame. Unfortunately there is wear to the detailing on the bird as well as to the swastika; the original owner most likely wore this ring quite often.
The ring is a size 9 and is silver hallmarked "835".
A good, original piece of Luftwaffe jewelry here.
SSJEWEL #42011C Luftwaffe Fallschirmjäger Ring
On the obverse of the ring it protrays a panel that has a raised oak leaf wreath with a diving Luftwaffe eagle with swastika. It is the same image as is portrayed on the Fallschirmjäger badge. Next to the center panel are sets of oak leaves on each side.
The ring still has fairly nice detail showing some wear but the details are still good.
SSJEWEL #42012C Afrika Korps Ring
This ring is unmarked but appears to be made of nickel silver with possibly enamel in the center area. The center area has a three tiered section which culminates in the middle with a centered mobile swastika.
Above the swastika are the words "DAK 19", although it took some magnification to figure this out as the ring surface has worn over the years. Obviously the "DAK" stands Deutsche Africa Korps. The second part, "19" is apparently the start of a date, although the last two digits have been obscured by wear. At the lower portion of the ring face is the word "Sfax", which is a city in Tunisia, so this ring is most likely a memento of the ill fated Tunisian Campaign.
On the left side of the ring is a cross image and on the right side of the ring is a palm tree image. The ring is about a size 10.
A very nice DAK Ring here; original private purchase rings of this type are quite scarce.
SSJEWEL #42084C Original SS Honor Ring Award Document
This example is date 9 October 1936, and was awarded to "SS-Obersturmführer Rudolf Denk / SS-NR. 11.577, 6. SS-Motorstandarte". The document has the proper hallmark, which appears to be "KOH. 1. Noor". It is also stamped with the Reichsführer-SS stamp, next to which Himmler's black ink signature appears. The signature is quite large, and there is no mistaking the penmanship.
There is a little minor wear to the edges but they are held firmly in place by a piece of parchment attached to the document.
In 1936 Denk was assigned to the "84th Station of the 5th Motor Standard". In October of 1944 he had been promoted to Sturmbahnführer and active in the SD. The SS-Deinstalterliste shows that he was indeed awarded an Honor Ring.
An extremely rare SS Honor Ring document; these are even more difficult to come by these days than a ring! An excellent and uncommon opportunity for the SS collector here.
SSJEWEL #40535C Eva Braun Signet Ring
This ring is quite delicate, very feminine and rather small. It is formed of 18K gold and has a heart theme on the top. Beautifully engraved into the heart are the initials "E. B.".
The ring shows normal wear throughout. The interior is marked "585".
An absolutely original item here.

SSJEWEL #36509C Silver Reichsmark Coin Bracelet
This bracelet is extremely well made, being constructed of six five Reichsmark coins. The coins feature Paul von Hindenburg on the obverse and the German eagle on the reverse. One of the coins just off center features the German eagle grasping a swastika.
The coins have all been slightly curved to lay properly against a wrist. They are connected together by way of eyelets, two located on each side of the coin. These coins all have varying dates, running from 1934 through 1939. There is a catch on one end of the bracelet, with a push button that connects to a sliding catch on the far end. The catch is marked, “800”, indicating silver construction.
There is a small safety chain with an opening eyelet which also acts to secure the bracelet in the event that the main catch opened inadvertently.
A most beautiful design here, and prime example of fine period craftsmanship.
SSJEWEL #28927C War Merit Cross-style Ring
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.
A good looking period ring here.
SSJEWEL #36439C Unusual Silver Skull Ring
This ring is quite dramatic, with a long skull that has "jeweled" eyes and a nose with a similar look. The top of the skull has the initials "WPME", The skull is retained by serpents at the sides, which form the ring portion.
It is not hallmarked but obviously silver. It is marked "FELGER".
A striking fantasy piece here.
