    Hi Sid
    Im affraid your cap skull button ist also not orginal.
    For me this is a copy one level higher from this copies posted below.
    In orginal ,,face of the skull posted on left side is different from ,,face of your skull.
    But ,,face of your skull is similiar to face of skull on copy button posted bellow
    On the back numbers of codes on your skull are smaller like on orginal ,runes also smaller and made less carrefury in detail
    Also border of the button in orginal is made more precisious like border on your button.
    Of course I could be a wrongBut his is my opinion if someone asked me I will say not orginal

    Carlsson,

    Both of these appear well made but I do not like the TK on the front of either of these and for this reason alone I would not have been tempted to purchase.
    I do like variations in cloth insignia but I tend to stick to known examples of metal badges as these are easier to age and it is therefore harder to spot a fake.

    Thanks. Well that's the only piece that made me very unsure although It is a very convincing piece with crisp details. Since I am not 100% sure I am going to send that piece back to It's original owner. This piece will stay a doubt-piece for now.
    I do remember that the website collectormilitaria.com had once one for sale, wich means nothing of course.
    Kind Regards,

    What is disturbing about this new generation of fake buttons is that the inside of the eye sockets now have texture, as do the originals, whereas the sockets had always been Smooth before. They're getting Better and better...
