SS skull original? 499/41

Article about: The RZM (on the jawbone) 52 is original, as Ben stated. The skull in post 6 MAY be original. It could well be the early unmarked tombak skull that is so-far unidentified. Bob Hritz

    In my opinion, they are all fake, but I am still learning. The first one seems mishapen. While these skulls are supposed to look angled, the mouth on the first one looks to angled, and hence, misshapen. Also, the prongs on the back are unlike anything I've seen and the skull as a whole, looks very flat (as you can see from the back). The second one just simply does not look right, and the third looks too detailed - almost as if it was recently cast. Like I said, I'm no expert. Wait for some others to chime in. Like you, I am still learning

    I tend to think so. Usually fakes have soft detail. The edges that are suppose to be hard are rounded, and look like they have been cast. Here's a fake vs. a real one. See how the detail on the fake (first pictured) is detailed, but more soft and rounded?
