    Hi friends, here the description I found on the web.

    BACKGROUND: On July 20TH 1934 shortly after the, June 30TH 1934, purge of the SA on the "Night of the Long Knives", the SS was rewarded by Hitler by being granted the status of an independent organization under direct control of the NSDAP. In an attempt to distance themselves from the SA, the SS introduced a new pattern cap skull to replace the previously used Imperial Prussian Danziger style skull on October 6TH 1934. Originally the overseas cap skull was produced as a metal button that was affixed to the front center of the cap until regulations in 1939 introduced a machine woven version that was utilized for the duration of the war.

    I found some of these very rare skulls in Bavaria not far away from Bad Tölz, all on the same place, possibly thrown away from theyr owners.
