THE SS TOTENKOPF RING BOOK BY CRAIG GOTTLIEB AN ILLUSTRATED HISTORY FROM MUNICH TO NUREMBERG
BY Craig Gottlieb (HARDCOVER)
Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler is the person behind the making of the rare Totenkopf (Death Head) ring.
Craig Gottlieb draws on over 200 original examples with numerous tips and details presented in fantastically detailed close-up color photos that will help you distinguish between originals, reproductions and outright fakes. The in-depth analysis focuses on every minute detail important to the serious collector, including differences between the 1930s and 1940s style rings, anomalies between engraved descriptions, runic symbols and the skulls, number awarded and known to be in existence today. Also design background, construction techniques, and an in-depth analysis of the physical characteristics of rings.
He offers never before seen color photos and documents, and showcases many unpublished examples of the SS Honor Ring, including the famous Karl Wolff, Hermann Priess and Xavier Schwarz rings. The book also covers the pre-history of the Totenkopf ring .
Gottlieb also includes sections on award documents and frames, ring boxes, and provides many never-before-seen photographs of rings in wear. Finally, he brings rings to life with an extensive “personality profile” chapter in which he illustrates several famous rings.
