What to do with ? Nazi relic ???

Have silver napkin ring with SWASTIKAS ! Marks indicate Arthur Johnson Smith, Birmingham assay office, and X date mark, which I suspect is c. 1922. WHAT can I do with it , please ???

The word swastika comes from the Sanskrit word svastika, meaning any lucky or auspicious object, and in particular a mark made on things to denote auspiciousness, or any piece of luck or well-being.
So it doesn’t always have the stigma of having the Nazi connotation.
Many people collect these items - have a look on the well attended online auction site.
