    Hello, I just got these. I usually am careful to research things to death, but occasionally I will impulse buy. That's what I did here. These were marked "WW2 German guaranteed original"
    Anyway, what is the verdict? Thank you for any info...

    Hello and welcome to the forum!
    I am pretty sure that any skull marked with SS in a circle is a fake.

    I should add, these are supposedly solid silver. Did they even make these in 900 silver?

    I believe any insignia marked with a SS in a circle is fake . This marking was only used on equipment .

    SS cap insignia was, indeed, made of solid silver-albeit it in minute quantities for a triple premium priced option. Whether it was of 900, is another topic altogether. The literature only lists it as "solid silver". 800? 835? 850? 900? It does not elaborate. And then, of course, you have the problem of private jeweler made pieces. Who knows what the higher up SS men did or did not do. Sepp Dietrich, for example, was known to have special gold bullion insignia made. There was quite a spirited discussion on this subject here on this site some 6 years ago. It can be found at : Did they make SS skulls from Silver?

    As for the 2 pieces posted here, however, they are not authentic and are simply one of the endless hordes of fakes made and still Being made over the last 7 decades. They have and are being made in just about any material a person can think of-including silver, of course...
