    I agree it is quite possibly Latvian made. I always look for these foreign made skulls but never find any, for my collection.

    I will publish later some pictures where that kind of skulls and eagles.
    I would categorize them as:
    Belgian made
    Estonian made ( steel alu and zink)
    Latvian Zink like explained abowe
    Latvian small size with SS RZM tags skull ( I really don't know why they was stamped, but they was found by me myself, being walked in ex-Latvian soldiers cemetry near Velikie Luki- Russia, in the time when the all graves where recovered by Volksbund and some of the stuff just lie on the surface ground, unfortunately the better examples was taken by the workers and after that they were widely sold in 1995-96)

    Long winged alu eagle with the same markings.

    Imo these two last things are extreamly rare, and probably all of the examples was made especially for Latvian unit, and approx 70% of this unit KIA in Russia, I think if someone have undug examples- he must be happy to have one. Unfortunately I did not kept it...
