Himmler's Ring

Totenkopfring. English: "Deaths Head Ring". We're off to a good start now...

Put this song by Lowell George on, while you read the rest.


So yeah anyways - here's Heinrich Himmler's Ring - it was awarded to the best, most skilled and most loyal of the SS, during World War 2.

Chilling. Fuck.

The greatest thing about these rings, is that they weren't necessarily sanctioned by the state, like a military medal - these were instead more like "gifts" from Himmler himself. Apparently alot of the remaining rings (the ones still in public circulation serve as incredibly expensive collectors items) have been "blast sealed" inside a mountain. Imagine "finding one"... would that be cool? I think so.
