    Default ¿What do you think about it? Strange Totenkopf...

    Hello...

    First of all, sorry for my poor english...

    Many years ago, an argentinian friend takes me this insignia from Buenos Aires. A friend of him gives this totenkopf as a gift, saying that comes from his grandfather, that comes from Germany in 1950's. In fact, he shows him an entire uniform, a head cap, strap, boots, a Luger... Very impressive.

    It was broken, and I made a (bad) restauration, as you can see in the lower right bone. Since now, I assumed that it was am authentic WWII item. But reading this (excellent) forum, I saw that the headbadges are very different to this item.

    What do you think about it?

    Hi Manuel,i'm sorry to say that I agree with the others(and I am no expert on these SS skulls!) It looks as though it is a very poor metal cast,that has then had the reverse ground down. I have never seen anything like it. Leon.

    Sorry Manuel, Not an authentic piece. It looks to be a crudely cast piece and is definitely not genuine.

    It's a Biker's piece, that's all.
