Best Totenkopf Ring Reproductions

Post by blackmetalhed213 » 27 Dec 2007 00:07

Who makes the best reproductions?

I've searched the forums and found a thread like this before but some of the links and emails given are dead now.

Regards,
Matt

Don't know what other people think, but I found this site:

http://www.thirdreich.ca/ssto.php

The site says of the ring:
Awarded "Two Thumbs Up for Best In Show". Don Boyle, recognized as the world's leading authority on SS Honor Rings has rated our Kroeger Honor Ring as "The finest reproduction of an SS Totenkopf Honor Ring I have ever seen".

I would never buy from thirdreich.ca ! I have bought from them and paid a lot of money for a blood order a totenkopf ring and a few other items as a gift for someone and it was all for lack of a better word .... crap !!! The blood order was almost stamped through the medal (nothing like my original and it was poorly cast and unlikely actually silver ...
The ring .. hmm well that was the worst ring I have ever bought .. Casting was horrible ! I could not clean it up if my life depended on it .. and he was a long time getting back to me and delay after delay .. we live in the same country and shipping took forever .. the quote on his page from don must have been on a ring he kept for himself as the ones he sells are crap . I know this is an old post but I stumbled across it so I figured I would toss in a word ...

I bought a nice repro from here: http://www.epicmilitaria.com/product.ph ... onour-ring
They dont engrave the inside except for Himmler's signature so you can have it done yourself.
Its not exact (i.e. no internal weld seam) but detail is crisp & the skull is ok and not huge or silly like others.
Unlike some repros it is made of decent silver and you can pick the size too.
I personally have ordered stuff from them and have encountered no problems at all, they sell tons of other repro/reenactment stuff as well, and other third reich rings.
And pretty rarely for third reich repro sites, they take paypal too.
(I dont work for them :lol: Im just a satisfied customer)

Hello, would you mind posting some pics of the ring you bought at Epic Militaria? they have only one pic on the site and it ain't the best. Thanks

hello Whitehammer, is that the ring sold by epicmilitaria?

I know the other links but they are all more or less the same polish copies.

As far as I know the best repro was made in US by the father of one collector and sold in limited number. Also a latvian guy used to make very good rings but I cannot get hold of him any more.

Hi

I found this silver totenkopf ring on https://www.ww2militaria.biz

Image
the skull has got the flat face, is this detail right in your opinion?

Sorry, but it's not a very good copy.... There are much better ones out there, but I don't have any interest in fakes or reproductions. Keep looking.
