    For me It's a fake, I see "unsharp" suture details. This little hole I have pointed out is also not a good sign.
    BUT can you make some daytime picture's of it?

    Agree witch Sid this skull is fake.
    Notice bad proportion
    If you compare to orginal Zimmerman the,, face,, of this skull is to wide.
    The whole skull is to wide.
    Looks like someone pressed it from above and below

    What it's affixed to might tip its hand more than the skull itself. A gold bullion trimmed W/SS Generals cap (?) Actually I think the skull is nicely sculpted but most likely fake. That being said, why not show the whole cap?
