Remembered Today:

Ring (button) identification


Recommended Posts

I am trying to identify the button insignia on this ring. The ring was made from a WW1 button, but not sure if the button was British, Belgian, or German???

Any help would be appreciated

It's German, such as seen below:


or a close up here:


But looks to be of slightly better quality manufacture than normally encountered on issue stuff.

I would agree, it looks like thin gold applied to a signet ring. Overall the ring doesn't have the quality of the usual later German made pieces, what metal is the ring itself, it marked or hallmarked?

Thanks for the info Guys! The original ring was originally a "brass button on aluminium ring". It was crude piece of trench art but the "button" was removed and put on a standard 10k gold ring by a local jeweller. Must admit - it has a certain appeal.

Thanks for the feedback,
