    sam didn't i see this yesterday???
    anyhow i personaly don't like it there looks to be flash (cast) around the nose area as well as the edges, secondly the pins don't seem to have any wear marks on them (from being bent and used) any idea why the pin areas nice and shiney

    Yes you did. I didn't get any response........so I thought I would repost. I assume that the pins are replacements or they look to be! Thanks for your input!!

    I just confirmed with the seller that the pins are original, but were resoldered back on the pin. He states it is authentic and has a pretty long tenure on another forum......

    Hi Sam, I know you are keen for replies, but patience please. You bumped the other thread three times last night. I moved your other thread to the Heer forum as you have seemed to decided it was not SS? Which you were actually correct about. It is a Heer traditions cap skull for Kav. Regt 5.

    As you are now saying SS again, I have placed it in the SS cap insignia forum for you. The whole subject of these has really been done to death. Hence the lack of replies. Look at some of the many old threads.

    Personally I don't like it. The die strike to the nose and eye sockets is poor and the prongs I don't like either.

    Cheers, Ade.
