Now, Really,Calvaria, I think it's high time that you stopped this nonsense and get Rid of that fake piece of junk skull! Send it Immediately to me and I will dispose of it properly and correctly. And for good measure and to add some weight to your package,throw this other one in as well. I will watch the mails closely to insure that it does not go astray and end up in some poor soul's possession who doesn't realize it is fake. I would strongly suggest that you send it out yet Today... William

Looks like someone has commented on the above skull you pointed to on WAF.
Deschler visor skull on E-stand - Wehrmacht-Awards.com Militaria Forums
I still don't like the o/p skull (or the one on waf e-stand), neither are for me, but I respect your opinion (just don't happen to agree with it )
Agree with you on the second skull posted by calvaria, it looks good (one with RZM mark in lower left jaw).
Thanks, I have my own opinions ;-) and also I don't "go with the flow" like on the WAF forum, telling stuff is a fake without knowing anything about It. Iam talking about the "new collector's" who already want to be some kind of expert by following the "orders" of the some "older collectors'".
I don't ask from people to follow my advices, I just give mine.
As I can read on the that link, I just want to show that pointing out the underjaw on the skull is complete nonsense, Instead of showing the obvious weird-looking sutures on the skull, he shows the under jaw that tells nothing about that piece, especially when there is some dirt on that place.
Nevertheless I would be very intrested to have that skull in hands to look even closer, because from my experience bad picture's can do a lot of damage to the Originality of some pieces.
All the best,
Ladys and gentelmens I think will be gut to cool a litle this thread
Skull is orginal and if someone see for first time this ,,Anniversary Tombak Limited Edition Deschler M1/52 ,,skull (: is a lucky guy.
Someone said fake why ?-because their for the first time see different alloy and pin connection.I think we heft to be more open minded people, if no- we will see on every thread same couple SS caps ,some movie posters ,some casualties of war pics etc etc etc and every thread will be in type The Who band song ,,Who is Better who is Best.,,
As a wrote bevore everybody can be a expert or guru.
I learned a lot from this forum (yes Mister Hirtz) and I wanted pay back for other members.
Uf this terrible Englisch.
Now Im show you how is looking freschly dug.
One is Deschler and second one is Fritz Zimmerman.
Now guys tel me who is who (: (:

The first one is a aluminium Deschler I think, the second must be the 499/41 regarding the nose.
p.s don't listen to me "I am only trying to help". ;-)
Carlsson BINGO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Guru is a Guru
Here are pics of the skulls after cleaning.
Zimmerman is witch strange artefacts on the front side like mineral stone. I never saw something like that
Iam not a guru at all, Iam just "trying to help".
