SOLD

Original WWII German Waffen SS Officer’s Visor Cap Skull Certified By The Gettysburg Museum Of History. We make the call of this being an Officer’s skull because  this is a battlefield recovered example and only officer’s would wear visor caps in combat situations. 1934 SS pattern, stamped alloy construction skull with a silver wash. The skull features detailed eye and nose cut-outs, two rows of teeth and bottom jaw, superimposed over crossed bones. The skull also has subtle cranium and bone detailing. The skull retains all of its original silver wash. The hollow backed reverse of the skull is a mirror image of the obverse. The prongs are securely crimped in place, and then soldered, as usually seen on Overhoff made CupAl SS Cap Skulls. The prongs are made of Tombak (Brass), and exhibit both the makers RZM code of “M1/24”, as well as the characteristic three dashes on the pin itself. It is unknown what caused these dashes, but it is a common trait on most Overhoff produced metal insignia prongs. The reverse of the skull also shows the maker mark “M1/24”, a well as the RZM Logo in raised relief.  The reverse retains one of it’s two of its original attachment prongs. Nice example, outstanding for a battlefield recovered skull. If you want one that was actually “there” and saw battle this is for you! Some mild pitting and loss to silver wash and one prong otherwise good. Complete museum documentation (COA) Provided. Certified by The Gettysburg Museum of History.
