    Default Authentic Hitler Bust?

    Greetings from Ohio. Would like some input on this one. This was an antique store find. It measures about 9" tall and is pretty heavy, about 3 or 4 lbs is my guess. It also reads Schmidt hofer?? on the reverse. I guess I'd just like some input as to if it's authentic and value. Thank you for you time.

    It appeared at first glance to be an authentic bust to me...

    Not trying to doubt Glenn's opinion but that look pretty poor, i bet uncle Adolf wouldn't approve of the casting mark up the back of his neck!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Thanks for the quick replies. I've been researching this and it does look authentic compared to some of the repros I've been finding. Thanks again

    Here's an original of the same bust. Note the differences in casting quality, crispness of signature and finish in general. No strange brush marks or rough texture on this piece.
