    Default Best totenkopf replicas ?

    Hello everyone,

    Since you guys are experts I would like to ask you, where can one buy the best totenkopf replica ? I particularly love the Deschlers, because of the realistic details they have.

    I've found that one : http://www.1944shop.com/contents/med...ap-badges4.jpg

    The shapes and details look alright but the "brushed" effect and texture is not authentic looking, and I don't know if I can get rid of it.

    I've also found that one : http://www.totls.com/images/sterling_silver_2.jpg
    Which looks quite good.

    If you have any suggestions, please go ahead !

    I think a lot of reputable dealers of repros won't make exact copies, or if they do there will be something on thrm to distinguish a fake....The repro dealers I have bought from all o this, the item looks right, but there is one fatal, subtle flaw to distinguish it as such...

    I havent been Abe myself to find a repro skull, that is priced and identified as a repro, that looks like a real one. Go to Snyders, he has a few "real" skulls that look enough like the real ones, but you'll be paying real skull prices for repro skulls

    I'm not against this idea, but the problem is that I don't have the knowledge and experience to spot a fake one (a sticky post on the most common things to look out for to spot a fake would be great). I also don't know where to find them, as I'm new to the militaria collecting world. What is a reasonable price for a totenkopf cap pin in good condition today ? And what are good places to find them ?

    The less replicas floating around the better!

    I am not sure where you could get one, Prices can vary. Take a look at some of these dealers, one might have one somwhere (I can honestly say that I dont know if some of the sellers he is recomending are legit, make sure to ask before you buy something)

    You won't have a drama spotting a fake if you post the pics here first, there are some very knowledgeable people on this forum that freely give their advice so you can buy with confidence. Originals always come with something that fakes will never have, real history, and that to me is worth paying that bit extra for. Good luck mate.

    Luckily. Those garbage badges are not to be compared with something like this...
