It has been known about for some time that the skull spange was worn and was very likely an unofficial, private purchase piece.

Here are the pages from Konstantin's book that discuss the official and private purchase ribbon and the spange including a spange in wear.

If you look closely at the private purchase ribbon, it's clear that something was attached to it at one time and it was likely a skull.

Although the skull on my ribbon is smaller, it's been mounted quite professionally and I believe it's consistent with and represents the same thing.
