    I have seen other SP 40 skulls posted before and I don't see any difference between them and this one, this look like original example to me no cast marks to be seen from these photos !

    Can you show me the fake Example of this skull other then the one with the bad cast already posted before that had a asking price of 450

    The details on the front and the box-attachments are a bit suspicious.

    Carlsson, Thanks

    I know you are familiar with SS metal insignia If you think there is some ? then maybe there is !?
    But if this is really Fake then it is one very good example of a repo !!!

    But why don't we see more of them on the market ?

    I don't want to say that It's a fake yet. Can you post more macro pictures of It? Also a hand on piece is always better than pic's because pic's often don't do their justice.
    According to the few one's I've encountered, they could have been manufactured in Austria and that should be the reason why they're so rare.
