|As you know, Germania International, LLC, does not handle reproduction items unless clearly marked as such, and then they must be items that are clearly collectables in their own right, and usually in great demand by the collecting public, yet the original article would be prohibitive in price if offered, and would bring between $7,000 and $12,000. In this case, almost every collector of Third-Reich memorabilia has at one time wanted to own an -Totenkopf honor ring; I know I have! Now, finally, a near-perfect replica of this handsome ultra-important Relic of the Reich has been developed and is available from us. There are lots of others on various sites out there in cyberland offering rings like this at least when first viewed. But Mr. Donald Boyle, who wrote the book that is still the official hornbook on these honor rings, has fully endorsed Germania’s ring as by far the best and most authentic one ever done! and with this in mind here is the explanation of all the aspects of this prodigiously important and actually awe-inspiring, museum-quality ring with all of its Teutonic mythos-inspired runic symbolism a forefront.
This description is taken from the site that for a short time featured these magnificent re-creations of the world’s most-sought-after ring. We have bought out all rights and production of this Teutonic treasure, Heinrich Himmler’s Death’s Head Honor Ring.
And, now, finally!, the absolute best copy of the collecting world's most-famous and much-desired ring. We all have heard the sagas of Teutonic barbarians sweeping down from the north in a thundering wave of terror and destruction. These accounts are matched only by the glorious Germanic crusades of the middle ages. Then we remember the military victories of Der Alte Fritz (Frederick the Great) and the devastating Prussian military conquests of 1871 and 1914. In 1939, the loud, resounding thud of hob-nailed boots was heard once again in the streets of Europe as "The New Order" sent forth its valiant sons to wrest victory over the French, Belgians, Poles, et al. They revived in essence the Teutonic war machine in all its frightening, yet glorious, splendor! The most effective and undaunted of these Reich's warriors were the soldiers of the (Schutzstaffel). The quest of martial grandeur is nowhere revealed more plainly as within the design of the famous Death's Head Honor Ring (Totenkopf Ehrenringe). This ring was presented to and worn by specially selected members of Heinrich Himmler's elite Storm Troopers. The grotesque skull and mystic runic symbolism advance a terrifying yet thrilling image of ultramilitant Germanic history, but at the same time instills in the observer a fascinating view into a world of combative excellence and do-or-die faithfulness to a cause, whether "Right or Wrong." Meine Ehre heisst Treue! "My honor is loyalty." This is the motto.
This reproduction is so vividly accurate in every detail that we decided that there will be certain persons out there who will invariably try to resell them as originals for huge monetary returns, so we have made one small deviation or subtle change and that is as follows: we have made one small strand of the oak-leaf decoration move in the wrong direction. This can be perceived at the ring's bottom. Although we have handed the ring to experts from time to time and asked them if they saw anything different only one of five has ever seen the tiny change. If we don’t point it out you can hardly notice it. The rest of the ring is the classic -Totenkopf Ehrenringe. We have chosen to make it an exact copy of -Obergruppenführer Reinhard Heydrich's ring with the date of its issue 21.6.1939. This date also designates the summer solstice ceremonies, and you can see his name plus the facsimile of Himmler's signature within the ring's interior all completely fabricated just as the originals were presented during that earth-shattering, turbulent time. The rings are in pure silver with the highlighted details professionally darkened to bring them out vividly. Sizes are 9, 10, 11, and 12. For sizes other than these, we will have to add extra cost for special sizing. Each ring is hand finished and the finished product is overwhelmingly exquisite. There will be a great demand for these amazing rings and countless orders are expected to result because militaria collectors have waited a very long time for the appearance of the ultimate Germanic ring. Gentlemen, this one makes all the other attempts look rather amateurish at best.
PRICE: $150.00; A nice reproduction of the original-style box that these rings were presented in is available at $30.00 dollars extra. Ring and box $180.00; box sold only with the purchase of a ring.
