Love the ring, what a special find.  Worth a crack at FOTM I reckon.

Great find.  How do you know its 1945  - inscribed?  Could even be earlier than WW2 as Americans have been there since 1901.

Is there a reason they would inscribe 1945 in any other year than 1945? (Genuine question here, not taking this piss)
