Here is a fantastic example of a forward-facing Indian chief vintage souvenir ring. This particular chief charm is very desirable and much more rare compared to the more common side-facing variants.

The side shields are filled with very sought-after skulls and crossbones, making for a great combination fit for any collection.

Just enough patina is present overall, giving a clue to its 70+ year old journey and making it more interesting. This could be cleaned and polished if desired but I feel that would reduce its value.

• Mixed Metal
• Indian Chief with Skulls and Crossbones
• Hallmark: MEXICO
• Sized 12
• Ring face: ~ 1" x 3/4"

Vintage souvenir rings, otherwise known as “Mexican Biker Rings,” date back to the 1930s. They were sold to traveling tourists and through novelty catalogs such as the Johnson Smith novelty catalogs in the late 40s and 50s. Rings like this were worn by American GIs returning back from the war, rebellious teenagers, fraternal organizations and lodges, motorcycle club members and really anyone who wanted a piece of the outlaw culture.

• This is a vintage item and exhibits signs of wear typical for items from this era
• Ring sizes may vary a bit due to the size and shape of these rings
• All sales are final unless we’ve made a big mistake in our listing
