    Default Large German Totenkopf Panzer / Tiger crew photograph

    Just thought I would show off one of the cool things I picked up last week at an auction.
    I was in a large box of military paper items and photo's. Got the whole box for $70.
    Has anyone ever seen one of these pictures with the collar painted to enhance the skull and shoulder boards?
    I didn't take the back off to see if his name was there.

    An interesting image. That is likely the ugliest full skull totenkopf I have ever seen. A very unusual insignia which if found for sale today loose from a tunic, would likely be considered a poorly made fake. Thanks for posting this most unusual image.

    Indeed, a retouched photo and sadly very badly done, but still interesting to see.
