    Default SS Cap Buttons 1194/40 and 1194/39

    Hi gents,

    Pictured are 3 cap buttons front and back side. I know that the 1194/40 is a fake. I see some differences in the 1194/40 stamping and the rim but the skull looks simulair to the others and I can't see any difference in the pebbling. So my question is how to recognized a fake item. Pictured left the fake, middle Dachau made, right Aluminium button.

    The two originals are fine and smoothly done, the fake has a lot of different pebbling, you just have to look better. The pebbling is also more deeply cast. The sutureline is deeper in the fake etc.

    @Carlsson1982
    Manny thanks for the info, I've noticed now the inconsistency in the pebbling, etc.
    Now I know were to look at. Sometimes it's good to have a fake one to compare
    with the Original ones.

    Thanks again regards,
    Ron
