    Thats very interesting, something I've never seen before.
    Did Poland manufacture their own skulls? As it is a match for the German traditional badge.
    You wouldn't have a photo of the reverse ?
    Cheers Chris

    Thanks for the updated and detailed information Krakow1.

    Based on my original image how could you tell if the skull is legit , could we see the reverse of the skull?

    I have asked Tony Zawadzki who is a MOD on Polish Forum for comment. He may have a picture of the back, I do not. The one You have shown is missing the silver tress around it...
    Known example that sold at Desa Auction in Poland was 76x61 mm, tape around the border was metallic.

    Nice. So my theory that I stated was possibly turned out to be actually be possible. I will have to say this; that specific skull that you showed (To OP) looks a bit strange compared to the SS Totenkopf, or even the German Totenkopf, so I was suspecting that due to it's strange manufacture it could not possibly be German. On the other hand, I suspect that the Polish may have very well just taken any extras they had from since when they were part of Germany(Prussia of sorts) and used them instead.
