    It looks like a cast copy of the early tombac panzer skulls. It's a fairly good copy that has been artificially aged in my opinion. The rough edges on the reverse give it away as well as the attachment point. You can also see casting flaws around the eyes and nose. Here a are a few from my collection for visual comparison.

    Just to further illustrate the defects for those who are interested. I highlighted some areas in red where you can clearly see all the mold residue on the edges.

    In blue you can see the pin is folded over and soldered at an angle where as in an authentic skull they are soldered straight on and appear to be part of the actual skull
