    Default Skull & Eagle for SS Visor..Real?

    Hello again.

    i was wondering what some of you think of these items.

    It is a SS visor cap badge set, So the Skull and the eagle.
    These are offered in a set for a very reasonable price, and i am considering to buy a set of these.
    Now is my question...real or fakes?

    I personally think that the detail of both badges lokes fine, nice and crisp edges, no obvious casting marks.

    I dont like the weird looking dent in the skull's chin.
    Both appear to be marked proparly.
    The pins i am not sure off...

    Please let me know what you think, and help me get a little wiser.

    Thanks

    Sorry, but I agree with Ben, these are poor fakes.

    Cheers, Ade.

    please enlighten me, because i found the eagle looking quite nice.
    Dood detailing, no obvious cast marks...
    The skull ok....thats clear to me...but the eagle not really...except the mounting pins

    The eagle is a totally fake design. Try and find any original with that shape head. I can tell you that you will not find one

    Cheers, Ade.

    pins are funny, outside detail is better than inside... no detail

    I truly do not want to come off as sounding harsh and discourage your collecting interests, but I think I also owe you a dose reality. Those are both horrible fakes. They are so far from resembling originals as to make them comical. Please do not spend any money in this hobby until you do some serious study and can tell the difference between these obvious fakes and originals. There are far better fakes out there than these; if these fool you, you are in for a lot of disappointment and significant financial loss. Again, please take this in the spirit in which it was intended. I would like you to one day enjoy this field as much as I do and you will not get there on the path you are on.

    Thats why i asked you guys @ the forum.
    Just started to take interrest in de insignia & badge stuff.
    So yes i am learning, and learning is best done when you study & ask the help of people with more expertise.
    And I do own a few books on this subject, wich a read regularly.
    But asking help cant hurt if you are not sure about something...can it.
    So i do take your comment in the spirit of wich it was intended, and i thank you for your dose of reality.
    And perhaps i allready enjoy this hobby/interrest as much as you do, even if i still have a lot to learn.
