    hi Andrew I've never seen anything quite like it, but i would say it is a fantasy piece, just look at the shape of the runes, not good IMO

    Hi,

    I have a SS deaths head cap badge in my collection and believe it to be original, but wondered if anyone could help confirm that? (and if you could let me know the best way to add pictures, I'll add some pictures...)

    Thanks

    Hi mate welcome to the forum. If you go to FAQ (frequently asked questions). It's explained there. Stewy S
    P.S. I must agree with John,the piece shown is not remotely familiar to me either. Do you have a pic of the reverse?

    John is correct. The badge shown is a post war fantasy item.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I have some concerns over the badge shown firstly I do not like the number designation, the slash is usually longer, and secondly, all the ones i have seen that are deemed as real have the back pins angle set the other way? And I can't see the usual die flaw often seen in originals

    I'm not an expert, so it will be interesting to hear what the real experts think, just my tuppence worth

    Thanks for your input John.

    If it helps anyone, the pins go in either direction - one on the right pointing left and one on the left pointing right. Hopefully this picture will help.
