Three Rings for the Goring in the sky
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in Alpine Redoubt
Nine for Paulus' men left to die
One for Dork Lord on his SS throne
In the castle Wolfenstein where LARPers reside

Each Ring has its' individual value. Were the 200 rings found by the US soldiers in an office already engraved with names? Maybe not. And if the other allocated rings would be found it will not be one price for all the same. P.ex. the ring of Heydrich will go for much more. Same for Eicke. How many kg of silver was that altogether? To evaluate the transportation means. Ammo crate?

Fascinating story. A lot can be hidden and then forgotten in the chaos of war.

Admittedly, they had an eye for catchy graphic design and symbolism.
The SS runes can even be found in the band, _Kiss'_ logo.

As Mark mentioned the runes inside the triangles as representing ''the power of the sun'' in fact the use of the title ''SS'' also refers to the title ''Black Sun'' in German.

We all knew about the SS death's head rings. But I never knew there was such a story behind them. Fantastic information. Thank you, Mark Felton

These are living history. Incredible articles from the past. I'd love to see a real one. I'd love to see one even in a museum.

I owned one of the earliest examples the Night of the long knives date! These were given as Xmas gifts 1933 then made as you said as an award to the very few mostly OLD GUARD AT FIRST! Not mentioning this does a disservice to the rings! I am sad I sold the ring now but know it’s in a good place

I'd imagine a lot of these rings reside in South

Went to the Wewelsburg Castle a few years ago. Very impressive to see and definitely a recommender for anyone interested in WW2!

Fascinating, Dr. Felton. These old artifacts and keepsakes are so interesting imo. Actual physical remnants of a different era, country and a massively influential time in history. I really regret not being able to locate my Grandfather's medals and keepsakes from WWII (Canadian Allies). Cheers and Respects to you Dr. Felton for all of the time and work you put into these videos.

The lake seems most likely but wouldn’t be surprised if a few were floating around Argentina.
