    Ouch!

    I'm not trying to be rude here, but why do you think it's an original?... Have you ever seen a photo (of which we have several here on the forum) of the real deal? Even if your copy has been beaten up quite bad, probably an attempt to hide that it is a copy, anyone who had spent a small amount of time comparing your "scull" (yes F-B, I wrote "scull") with any of the hundreds of photos of known originals on the forums would see that your "scull" is a fake.

    Don't bye anything before you have studied these little fellas on your own for a long while, this is a mine field and most of us who collect have spent a lot of time and $$$ trying to learn.

    Look out for this.

    Look out for crooks. That one looks like something snyderstreasures would try to sell to you. There are a 100 times more replicas out there for sale then originals. And a original in good shape costs about 1000 dollars and over. If they are cheaper they often are in bad shape or they are bought in hours after they are put up for sale.
    Good luck finding an original. There is one for sale at collectors guild a.k germanmilitaria,for 1100 dollars I you want an original.

    Yeah sure you can get them cheaper if don´t buy from a dealer. Most dealers takes around 1000 dollars and more for an original In good shape...Sad but true. If you can deal with one in less good shape then the price is different.

    Which would be considered quite cheap for a CupAl made, with both prongs attached, for most collectors.

    M1/52 is probably the most copied TK, by far, in my experience.
