This is the second in a set of gem quality Totenkopf rings consigned to us from the same collection (the first one sold in our last auction).  The ring is attributed to Karl Schumers, who was an SS Standartenfuhrer and who commanded the executioni of 280 unarmed women and children in the village of Kleisoura in Greece.  The ring shows minor wear commensurate with having been worn by Schumers.  This ring, along with the Hartrampf Totenkopf Ring, were acquired directly by me approximately 2 years ago from the Cole family, brought back by Beverly Cole's father after the war.  The ring comes with a dossier that includes Schumers SS rank list entries, some bigraphical research done on him, as well as a hand-written note from Beverly Cole concerning the rings that she sold.  Her contact information is available to the winner of the auction.  In addition, several copies of her father's army service records, as well as photos of the veteran. Size 9 For more information on the first ring we auctioned, click here:
