If you ever see "SS Runes in a diamond" they are 100% fake.
Deathshead stamp require a close up view. Naturally these are mega faked...

Cheers Ade, re the SS stamped MG42 i was looking at last week
Strange isn't it really, obviously the SS were frowned upon in the 30's by the Wehrmacht, hence they had their own budgets and had their own ammo and other items produced and stamped up accordingly. Is it just a question of finance that they did not produce their own weapons or commission their own?
The book "Backbone of the Wehrmacht" shows the exact same deathhead stamp on page 301
On the left side of the shown example is a BSW stamp and a commercial eagle/N stamp.
I am not saying that is a original 98K, even when pictured in books
As said before this stamps where made and used on a lot of 98K to hump them up in price
So be carefull ...
