I don't know what such things cost in Russia, if they are real. I had the impression that good SS stuff in Russia was very costly.
In any case, there are some sources for these objects, and our European members maybe have better suggestions.
These insignia used to cost me USD 15 or USD 20 in the early 1970s, and that was a great deal of money.
80 DM for such a thing was also a while ago.

Morris and Sid,
You are assured me it's the fake. Nevertheless how to explain kind of metal that the eagle made of? I cannot bend it really. All of fakes that I had before are soldering by iron but not this. The fake engineering was improved?
Friedrich, you are right, but I have not any reference points on the price, excluding famous catalogs. As a rule, the russian prices are one and a half expensiver than in US.
F.B provided you a link to germanwarbooty.com . Use those prices as an reference. You will not find cheap authentic SS insignia anywhere on the net or in antique stores. If it´s cheap, it´s in 99,99% of the cases fake. It´s easier to win the lottery then find cheap original ss insignia. But good luck
does'nt matter, if it's not bend. It's a even far to the original, there much more better quality fakes floated around. Surely you cannot bend this alloy. In Russian it's Dura'l, in German-Nural
