    Original WWII German Waffen SS "Cut Off" By A U.S. Veteran Cap Skull (Totenkopf) Certified RARE! The machine woven example was first introduced sometime in 1939, and was based on the 1934, metal pattern skull. The machine woven skull was designed for use on the overseas and M43 style caps although it was also occasionally utilized on the visor hats.  BeVo, machine woven construction skull and cross bones in silvery/grey threads with black accent threads on a cut-out woven black rayon base. The skull features a bottom jaw, dual rows of teeth and nice eye, nose and cranium detailing. The skull was torn of a cap. So many of these in the collectors market are mint found in factories at the end of the war. This is a true combat worn "Cut Off" from a cap.
