    Both pieces seem to have a rather 'rough' surface appearance. That would give me pause to consider them original. I would like to see a better photo of the crimping and hallmark, on the skull.

    I would not buy these from the photos you have posted.

    very doubtful it is a good SP40 skull. for a start look at the cast pores at the front and is it an aluminium? it is different from original ones.

    This is an original SP40 aluminum skull.

    Sid, what is the measurements of your skull? width and height? if it is real original aluminium, it should be smaller right?

    I agree completely; cast copies.

    I wish I had something else of value to add to the discussion, but it looks like my colleagues have already done a superb job of pointing out all of the flaws. Well done, boys.

    Bob, superb piece. Simply superb.

    i can't believe what Iam hearing, this skull is a Original one,
    it was a ground dug piece, the things that you call 'flaws' is of course uncorrect , it's a ground dug piece .
    I hope they're are other people who can see it as well.
    but maybe I'll put better pics
    the eagle is from the rupture Duck so I know it's good as well, only the prongs were renew as I mentioned
