    Default 2x skulls awaiting verdicts (M1/52 and M1/24)

    Another dreaded skull thread. I have still failed to acquire a 2nd pattern Totenkopf however...

    Ok, so I have been collecting reference photos of genuine and fake TK insignia, but I still need good advice. I believe the M1/24 Overhoff skull to be authentic, it looks good to me. On the other hand, I feel the M1/52 is most likely fake. It has the appearance of the common fakes, though differs slightly in known examples (to me) so I thought I'd check here to be sure.

    Finally, if real, how much are these worth each? I'm grateful as ever for any help here.

    EDIT: the order of the photos has messed up, don't know how to fix that...

    Both looks genuine, but Deshler's is a bit damaged inside

    Thanks Dimas. Is there a reason for the different texture on the inside of the M1/52? And what are these both made of? Also, what are their approximate values?

    Anyone else?
