    Seller said it was 40's era. Thanks for any help you can provide.

    there will be opinions coming along shortly better than mine, hence the "IMO" but i don't like the shape of the head. i am wondering actually if it is a "pigeon head" fake.

    the prongs are attached pretty far out there too and the overall look of the thing just isn't for me. it does not match up in general appearance to what i am used to seeing in originals.

    but you'll get more opinions soon to buttress or contradict my own, so wait for those.

    It is TOTALLY fake ! A cast version,It is what is known as a " Pigeon head" .....also, the card board sales/issue card is 100% 4th Reich. Compare the design with my unmarked Assman.

    Local guy, no national presence so I'd prefer not to put his name out there. Chances are he got had too. He's a good guy so I don't want to sully his name.
