Original WWII German SS Or Panzer SKULL. (Schirmmütze Totenkopf) Stickpin Brought Home By A U.S. Veteran Certified. The Allgemeine-SS, (General-SS), was originally formed in May 1923 as the Stosstrupp Adolf Hitler (Shock Troops Adolf Hitler), and was redesignated Schutzstaffel, (Protection Squad), in April 1925 with the official acceptance of the name verified on the second anniversary of the failed Munich “Beer-Hall” Putsch on November 9TH 1925. On January 6TH 1929 Heinrich Himmler was appointed as Reichsführer-SS, (National Leader {of the} SS), and on July 20TH 1934 shortly after the, June 30TH 1934, purge of the SA, Sturm Abteilung, (Storm Troopers) on the “Night of the Long Knives”, the SS was rewarded by Hitler by being granted the status of an independent organization under direct control of the NSDAP, Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei, (National Socialist German Worker’s Party). On October 6TH 1934 in an attempt to distance themselves from the SA, the SS introduced a new pattern cap skull to replace the previously used Imperial Prussian Danziger style skull. The old style skull was also used by German Panzer (tank) troops. First pattern, (Circa 1923-1934), silver washed, stamped alloy construction Imperial Prussian Danziger style skull, with no bottom jaw, superimposed over crossed bones. The skull features two rows of teeth, oval eye cut-outs, a triangular nose cut-out and embossed cranium detailing. The hollow backed reverse is a mirror image of the obverse and  soldered attachment stick pin is intact. This example is as nice as you can get, SUPER nice!  In good but used condition.   Complete museum documentation (COA) Provided.
