german ww2 bust authentic?????
hi guys i have been looking into ww2 german artwork and had came across this piece, it is described as a 'german army hero bust'.
from what i can gather the inscription reads- in loyal comradeship years ...or something of that sort with a name at the end?
i have never seen one quite exactly like this . seems to be authentic but i am unsure if this is just another bust presentation for an enlisted man for a special occasion like wedding or faithful service. also price is 500 plus tax shipping etc., dose this seem abit steep? as i have seen ones round here and there similar to this one offered for much less.
heres some pictures any help would be great as to authenticity , meaning etc.
also if any members reading this that may have like items for sale i would love to buy from forum members as well!

german ww2 bust authentic?
heres the brass inscription plate
Nice period soldier bust -your right in the translation " In loyal comradeship your Harpell"( Hard to read the name).
As to cost ,I would say that 500 is a little on the high end.
"He who hesitates is lost - is not only lost but miles from the next exit"
if its not bronze it's way to dear.
thanks hots, and harryamb,,,, you say 'if it is not bronze it is way too dear'
i will assume thas a typo and you mean its waaaay too expensive for a piece that is not solid bronze....
