    Can anyone tell by looking, is this real or fake?
    I got this around 20 years ago, when an uncle passed away, I would have been about 14-15. He was a "Harley Dude", and had lots of stuff like this, the family let us kids grab some odds and ends -like this skull -out of a shoe box.
    It could be real, I remember he had a lot of valuable war memorbilia (German Lugers, medals, etc.).
    I just recently learned that it's a German "Death's Head" that the SS wore, how cool! I just thought it looked cool, it has spent the last 20 years on my guitar strap.
    Anyway, there are no markings on the back, just kind of a dirty rough surface. Someone has (crudely) soldered a safety pin to the back.

    When you're wounded and left of Afghanistan's plains,
    An' the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Jest roll to your rifle an' blow out your brains,
    An' go to your Gawd like a soldier." - Rudyard Kipling
