Hi, just want to start off with saying ive been a member of this site for a while now but for some reason my user wasnt there anymore (i havent been on in years though and its changed a lot so i guess its understandable)
Anyway im not sure where to post this but i figured this was the closest to right place, if not please move this or let me know.
My friend currently has a gold freemason ring (or at least thats what he says) that he is trying to sell me, ive been trying to figure out if its real or not for a little while now, it does have some interesting symbols engraved in it and does look somewhat old but im not an expert at this nor am i an expert on freemasonry so thats why ive come here to seek some help identifying this..
Im gonna add some high res pictures here of the ring and the engravings on it, so please let me know what you make of it
Front of the ring:http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/545/p1010411s.jpg/
Theres 3 letters around the ring in the order S U A:http://imageshack.us/f/690/p1010412bu.jpg/http://imageshack.us/f/710/p1010420r.jpg/http://imageshack.us/f/851/p1010418k.jpg/
From left to right inside is:
PL (not sure what this is)
G (freemason sign?)
The three crowns on swedens shield thingy (refer to this picture http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/c ... et.svg.png
And G9 (which i also dont know what means)
Any info on this or anything at all really would be awesome, thanks!
