    Long time since I've been on here, I was just looking in a drawer that had a few items that my uncle had and found this, the makers mark is 373/43. If you guys need more pictures, let me know.

    sorry but this is not a good sign as no original skulls were marked with ϟϟ and the ones that are are copys.

    Darn, I guess it'll be a spot filler until I find a real one then

    Nicely made and detailed, but as has been said, unfortunately a copy.

    The contract no.373 never existed, these are reckoned to have been made in Austria in the 80's. Other bogus numbers from the same source to beware of are 360 and 380.
