Great Grandfather's Ring

5 posts in this topic

Hello,

 

I would like to verify the translation on a ring that my great grandfather had made in China around World War II.  It is supposed to say "Anderson" his surname.  Is that, in fact, what it says?

 

Thank you in advance,

common transliterations for Anderson are 安德森, 安徒生

 

I would hazard a guess that the first character (1st image, top left) is 安, see L31633 here

the 3rd character (top right) could be 生.

Or you may try to seal those word onto a clay, it can be shown clearer in that way.

A sharp photo evenly lit from the sides to bring out the engraving would help.
