    Default SS? Panzer? Cap Skull: Real or Fake?

    Hi, found this one searching around. It's not much money, and it comes from Poland. I know the pics are not that good, but maybe I can get more if needed, if it cannot be determined from these pics.

    If it is real, what is the makers mark on back? Assman? The mark looks like the one on the back of a Luftwaffe belt buckle I have.

    Is this a cap skull, or for a collar or other type of hat?

    Regards

    Hi F-B, ???????? "The above wishes it were this attached; but, sadly, is not."

    Do you mean that I wish it was real, like the one attached to your very nice hat??

    If it were real, I would snatch it up for $60US.

    I did not purchase the skull, was just getting opinions.

    I have another on the way in the mail, that I did buy, and I will post pictures when it arrives. It is different than this one, and is a dug relic.

    Regards, Steve

    I think FB means that he wishes that you would have struck lucky here and found an original but sadly you did not.

    Sorry to have confused the issue. I have allergies and cannot think clearly.

    Please do not buy the cap badge for sixty dollars. It is a fake.

    The piece I posted is authentic, and on a cap that is also authentic.

    Authentic cap badges, be they loose or on caps, are rare and expensive.

    Sixty dollars is not a realistic price, unless you are very lucky.

    In this case, you are confronted with a garden variety fake made from the images of authentic items such idiots as I have naively posted in the internet.

    A real badge would cost several hundred dollars and be quite hard to find. There exist well executed fakes, which would trap most of us. In these matters, Mr. Bwanek is the authority here, as is Bob Hritz and surely others I have not mentioned.

    Happy cap badges, but also do yourself a favor and look long and hard before you leap.

    Do not rely on the internet to impart secrets that are difficult to discern even with the naked eye.

    Thanks so much for the kind aid. I have been in too many aeroplanes recently, and imbibed too much foul air.

    I hope you are well.

    your humble, FB
