Nothing about the SS is textbook. I've seen the M-43 with the metal insignia before. Great picture by the way, thanks for sharing!
reverse of skull is rzm m1/52 i think,
100% fake skull
Of course the dealer is 100% sure it's legit, he wants to sell it to you!
(Shocked face, insert here) Please never do that to a original! If one knows what to look for, you can tell whether the scull is real or not from the front. No need to pull these things off and risk destroying it.

I read through other posts in this forum on this exact topic before touching it...extremely disapointed
Sorry, it's never fun discovering a prized possession is fake. I held out as much hope as I could for you. I'd be contacting the dealer ASAP.
