    I'm pretty certain it's fake too, but I think this one seems pretty convincing. I suppose it's a waste of time discussing detail when the photo quality is so bad, but from what I can see only the back gives it away with the prong mounts (which again, could be standard features of actual examples? I don't know). I compared it to photos of what are agreed to be genuine examples I collected from here. I clearly have some way to go with these things.

    Another Zimmermann in situ....there are many nice images of real "sculls" in this thread, and they are nicer when admired on a cap....
