    The interesting ones are, I think, the Steinhauer und Lueck ones with the RZM mark, if those are real, in fact. I never seen such a one in real life.
    The ones in "agony" have a certain poetry to them.

    Too bad one does not have images of the engravers and die makers of the era who created these designs, but I found a place in Vienna in Neubau that still has the native capacity to make metal badges in house from a design of a client---a service of such medallion and regalia firms of the old school. Granted the degree to which their craft has seized the minds and pocketbooks of benighted souls in the present, they deserve more of a place in history, nicht wahr?

    Moreover, I did not contract with this firm to make such badges, since in Austria they put you in the slammer pretty quick if a dumb a$$ non native embarks on such foolery. You have to know the territory. I cannot speak Wienerisch, so my accent gives me away as a Piefke.
    damit, basta.

    I found a nice section on the history of these within Robin Lumsden's "SS Regalia."

    The Stosstruppe AH was drafting on the elite prestige these skulls represented. This was mentioned in another recent thread. Lumsden has a concise summary.

    More on symbilism in "The Nationalization of the Masses" recommended by none other than our treasured F-B.

    Now this is a FANTASTIC book! The author's contention is the "cult" of German nationalism began in the 19th Century.

    Hi Peter, I like both of the skulls you have shown. Indeed the second one is unusual re the prong crimp.

    Your English is fine!

    I love the variations to be found in the design of these. Here is one of mine, shown on the forum before, but included here again for reference as "FB" has shown some other great examples in situ. It has been polished to death and the silver plating only really exists on the back and the lower front edge under the chin.

    Cheers, Ade.
