    Gentlemen, they are most definitely real. The one Hawkins shows is I believe an earlier version of the TK's used by the LAH but is not the "winking skull". These are very original, and IMO very beautiful and based in part perhaps on this very early Hussaren TK, the rarest and oldest German TK known which resides in my good friends collection over at Kaiser's Bunker. To see the craftsmanship of the winking skull trumpet banner and schellenbaum in person is quite the experience. Shown are a couple of period photos of good examples of the banner for the trumpet and drum wrap.

    Where is the auction for these items taking place?

    never any photos when you need them but here is one
    To go with the early trumpet banner and the skull of this being the pre-"winking" skull, here is the pre-SS eagle, the SA Eagle that went with your aforementioned early trumpet banner. Also of note in your photo Hawkins is the very very early LAH helmet with the scalloped tricolour. The soldier in the pic below wears the same, showing this is about 1933-ish I would guess.

    They switched to the beautiful "winking skull" and SS eagle in 1934 I believe.
