    Why damn it man you found me lol... .... How did you know I was on DA? by my name or by searching Third Reich related images?

    Back to topic...
    Who is your supplier? is it a well known local one or an overseas unit?

    Peace
    Haha I knew you were on DA because I had read one of your comments on an image uploaded by 'hardhead' minutes before looking on here- and I recognised the name. I've come across your art from time to time before though. I don't know if you know, but 'hardhead' has an account here: 'Squadra33' I think. Anyway, crazy coincidence!

    As for supplier, I don't have a particular person / company I frequently buy from, I just search around. I ordered the Totenkopf badge from www.dugup.co.uk- they have some nice relics. Would you happen to have any recommendations on where I may buy other genuine TK badges?

    Does anyone have any photos of this specific badge being worn? Again, any further information on this would be very much appreciated! I want to learn as much as possible.

    The Totenkopf arrived with me, and I'm pleased with it- It's a nice piece to add to my newly-started Third Reich collection. From what I can tell, it looks genuine, but here's a couple of more detailed shots I took. Let me know what you think! Cheers.
