    These are reproductions. Just compare the edges of the runes and shield border to an original pair. Also the reverse is completely wrong.

    Hi, welcome to the forum!

    Always remember ANY SS metal insignia marked with SS runes in a diamond is FAKE.

    Cheers, Ade.

    As has already been posted, very bad fakes with everything wrong with them that could be wrong. Poor detailing to the front, the wrong mounting pins and bogus markings.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    I agree with all of the previous statements. These were not RZM marked and if they were, the manufacturer's code would also be included. Welcome to the Forum.
