Another ebay Latvia faker fotobaltic. If you look at selling history, he sold about 5 this year. Many other fakes he is selling.

Eiserne Division.

Compare a well known fake with originals.

There is the same medal on ebay again, seller 'bernhardhetzmichnicht' is from the same location and the auction photos are nearly identical. Surely the same guy, who sold the other fake Epp medals in past, too.

I think people are catching on. The first went for over 120 Euros. But, the last one I think went for only about 48.

I feel this pin is a fake.
Symmetry of the skulls features are similar to the fake medal in post #3, (first image on the left).

What do you guys think?

I'd say fake. Minis of this and SSVK medal have been faked for quite awhile.

It looks like a small lapel/buttonhole type of pin.

Even with its small size I'd expect to see a properly proportioned skull.

Correct!

Even in this small size the skull should have a better quality.
