    Hi Rod, eagle is bad.

    The skull I would not buy without better pics of the back.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks Ade thats all I need to know.
    I study these things and do have my own suspicions , but its good to get second opinions to confirm.
    I donít know if I will even bother to ask for another picture of the skull.
    Thanks

    Thanks carlsson 1982 for your input.
    You have got me interested on this skull again. How can you tell if its original?
    Do you think its worth chasing? what kind of value are these please as I have no idea what to offer ,
    Thanks Rod

    Well the mirror-image from the back and the double edge on the back.
    Prices for these are very relative..It's between cheap and affordable.
    (I made the backpicture more brighter to see better)

    Regards,

    Sid

    Thanks carlsson1982 for getting back to me. There no way I would have been able to spot those details on it.
    I had already knocked him back last night before you posted.
    But after your post last night I emailed them again today and offered him £20 for it, not knowing if I was taking the P or not, as I hadnít a clue about value.
    Needless to say I havenít had a reply yet.
    Thanks

    Looks original to me too, for the reasons Carlsson stated. I bought this one pictured for £60, and had previously bought one like yours (but with incorrect reverse detail) that turned out to be fake for over £100. I'm kind of glad it turned out to be fake, because I got my money back, and it was never worth that much even if original, but at the time of purchasing I was inexperienced.

    The last skull is also a very nice original and different type from the first.

    Well guys I got it! here are some better pictures. He gave me the fake eagle for free it will do as filler for now.
    I hope it is still ok ,it seems to have a double edge all the way round.
    And is it just a flaw or is that some kind of mark below the left back eye socket.
