    One thing that should be extremely obvious is that the unit is wrong- a simple Google search would show it's actually 'SS-Totenkopf-Infanterie-Regiment 3'; that in itself shows the disc is fake. They're obviously going by the form of several 'named' units like "Der Führer", which have the name in quotation marks, not understanding that in this case 'Totenkopf' isn't the name in the same way. Another warning sign is the split-up number at the bottom- it was done very rarely on real discs, but strangely it's common on fakes, so if you ever see the number like that, you should immediately be suspicious
    Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...
