DESCRIPTION

This is a unique piece of "Totenkopf Ring Collecting History" in that it is one of the finest quality cast reporudctions of an original TK ring.  According to Don Boyle, the owner of the original had 10 copies cast, of which this is one.  This piece has all of the external tell-tale details that would normally denote this as an original.  However, a close look to the interior shows that the ring was cast, as can be most evidently seen by the tiny casting pits that reside INSIDE the "engraving."  Otherwise, it's very hard to tell that this is not original.  In fact, the owner bought it as original, and attempted to have it papered by both Don and myself.  Although I spotted the casting on the inside of the "engraving" I did not know the history of the piece until I contacted Don.  We both discussed this ring at Show of Shows, and agree that while it's not original, it's an incredible copy that would display nicely in any collection (NO Boyle or Gottlieb Certificate available!).
