CASTING AND FINISHING
Firstly, it should be noted that our Panzer Meyer SS ring is molded directly off of an exceptional original SS Honor Ring.
To arrive at a totally 100% accurate reproduction we use a “no shrink pink” vulcanized rubber mold. Our ring bears all the nuances and beauty marks that are found on the original, no attempt was made to correct for any wear that was present on the original.
In keeping with tradition, it is cast in solid silver in two separate pieces and the Totenkopf or skull is then fitted by hand and silver soldered to the band. This is the same lost-wax manufacturing technique as used by the sole producer of the original rings, The Otto Gahr Company of Munchen.
It is worth noting that our Meyer ring is meticulously finished by hand under a microscope to ensure a faithful reproduction of the original.
