The Totenkopfring (Skull Ring, Death Head Ring) that was awarded to select SS members directly from Himmler. The ring was obtained by the SS member after careful screening as a "Sign of our loyalty to the Führer, our unwavering obedience to our superiors and our unwavering solidarity and camaraderie." The award certificate was signed by Himmler himself. Originally created for a maximum 5,000 SS, the ring was later granted to any SS "worthy" of the award.
