    Hi, I am a newbie to determining fake or legitimate and would like a second opinion. I can't really tell too well but I think the eagle may be fake and would love an opinion on the skull. Just want a double check by someone with experience before I pull the trigger.

    welcome to the forum. First glance is concerns on the eagle details around beak and other areas make me feel they could be post war repro. I am not sure. Someone who is more SS Insignia qualified will be along to help I am sure. Is there an RZM marking or numbers on inside you can photograph as well and post?

    The ink marking on the visor looking like permanent marker traced over it? (The right S "S" looks noticeably larger when comparing it to other peoples original hats)

    Wish I could see it in person but its out of reach :/

    Noticed the eagles beak looked a bit funny too, like a lack of detail / rounded funny

    Do you have any pics of the back of the pins? The visor scares me so the pins go along with my fright a little. Again I am not a visor or SS Insignia guru.

    Wish I could get pictures of the back of the pins, but this is starting to sound too good to be true now that I look at it

    Your in a good spot to post this on the forum. If you can give it 12-24 hours you will get some experts weighing in with their thoughts. Good people on here that will help you decipher if it is a good one or not.

    To be sur of the eagle you must make a straight picture of the head and chest, but I can already say that It could be good. The Skull is sure ok.
