    The skull was made with both pin attachments. The "cone attatchment" is late war as I understand it.
    Here's a Zimmermann set that I used to own.

    I think the SS skull makers sometimes change their technology and some details in skulls constructions.
    Maybe in case of this skull subcontractors dosent have flat prongs but have round prongs.
    The show must go on and they used round prongs to continue produce of skulls.
    Maybe if they have crazy glue in this time they used glue to fastened skull to caps (:
    Thanks Peter

    Guys my last world
    Face of Anders skull and face of my skull are simmilar like standardt Zimmerman skulls face.
    Face of Ado skull loks more like Deschler type skull.
    And of course is painted.
    Strange
    Thanks Peter

    Zimmermann produced skulls and eagles with different prong attachments and from various different materials, cupal, aluminium etc.

    The example posted at the start of thread seems to be an original but I would guess, maybe re-painted.

    Zimmermann made two different prong attachments for his skulls but the front stays the same.
