    Default Authentic or reproduction?

    Let me start by saying thank you to the members for your expertise. I have only been collecting for a year or so, but have been using your advice for most of the small amount of purchases I have made.
    I recently purchased this Totenkopf, but have some doubts as to its authenticity. My main concern is with the sutures on the side of the skull. In most examples I have seen of authentic skulls the sutures are raised. These are sunken and/or engraved which causes my concern.
    Please review the item and let me know what you think.


    Thanks.

    The weight of it didn't feel right as well. Win some lose some. I'll add it to my other reproductions. Thanks for checking it out.
