    Hi Bob,
    I may be mistaken, however I believe these are complete fantasy items. I have a similar one marked with SS runes that was conifirmed as a fantasy item. Mine was thrown in with a lot of authentic items that I got for cheap, so it was basically free.

    They can be pretty convincing, though!

    Oh, and if the one at the pawn shop is anything like the one you posted, I would run quickly. Not sure if the image has been flipped, but the Swastika is reversed....
