    Yet another stinker with the eastern European story.

    Neither items conforms to prototype.

    Thanks guys. They've gone to great lengths to age items . Tip of eagle has through corrosion on 1 wingtip along with crack along neck and partial crack on one wing to look as if ground frost damaged.

    The thing I noticed about this is, on the left "Tang" ( as you look at the photo) for holding the skull onto a cap, there are marks on that piece, that, to me at least shows it was bent after it was made to look old or a "tool" caused it. Had that tang been bent before it was aged, the aging would not have cracked, and had it been bent before aging, some "tool" came into contact with it after ageing

    JUst my thoughts, Remember I do not collect this type of thing, but I do now a little about dug up bits.

    Think and write as you like, the stuff is Schund and absorbs too much time, electricity and mental effort.

    I cannot understand why so much attention is lavished on this kind of nuisance.

    Thank you, colleague. How much time have I wasted with this kind of thing.

    I do not want to discourage or dishearten the novice and the beginner, but these threads are so endless and circular.

    I have done my best to include as much real SS material as humanly possible, and there are many here who do so.

    The subtle details of fakes constitute a time sink of the worst kind.
