I did read the book years ago and it didn't sound forced to me, I remember. Who knows what to believe-there was So many nasty deals going on with all the different countries, no one came out of that war lily white... William

I do look forward to the trip, though definitely not in the conventional sense. I'll hopefully return with lots of photos of Krakow!
I agree krakow is lovely i hope to go back one day , rgds Dave
Wow that tk is certainly a prized possession! Nice catch!
Thanks! I think it will always be the most precious piece in my collection. I have recently sought out a means of telling it's story to more people, something I feel is important to do with things like this. I'll report back with more on that soon, if anything comes of it!
You go to the "BIG DEALERS" like Oakleaf Militaria, Bill Shea,Craig Gottlieb,etc. and see what they charge for a SS skull without the nice provenance you have and you got a great deal on yours! Totenkoph Officers skull was advertised by a dealer on a site and because it faced left he wanted $5,000 for it!! It is beyond words that these guys dont realize that new collectors are just going to say the hell with this!!You got a nice piece and Bob Coleman who knows what he is talking about made the comment on its being real and this way if some moron gives you a hard time about it ask the clown how many years he has in the hobby! GOODBUYS
Once you return from Krakow, you will surely see all of this rather differently, I can assure you.
