I cannot speak with any authority on the skull, but I'm not liking it. Everything else in the photo is also bad.
I think it's a fake asiis the party pin next to it, note the 'coffin' style pin hinge, always a red flag. Furthermore, the triangular German-Japanese pact pin if real, has been buggered about with by having the missing/chipped glass enamel replaced with enamel modelling paint, like Revell or Humbrol.
Best steer clear IMHO, But wait for the Carlsson classic 'one worder'.

We shall stick it out to the end, but we are getting weaker of course, and the end cannot be far.
It seems a pity, but I do not think I can write more. R. SCOTT.

The 2 badges with pin backs, are those catches what are refered to as coffin shaped fakes? (or is my memory bad!)
Skull is of course fake.
I wasn't too hopeful on it. Thanks you for the confirmation.
Skull is fake.
