      Ditto! I am 100% sure that it is an original piece....either WW1 or Freikorps.

      Whatever it is, the thing is a one-looker.

      All the material is typical Imperial and the wear, age, staining, fading, etc. etc. are all consistent with a very old multi-piece badge.

      Despite the rough stitching on the reverse, the obverse is extremely neatly done, the stitching being almost invisible from the front.

      The skull itself has a padded feel, presumably from the inserted red cloth.

        Here's the reverse.

        It looks crude from the photos (and it is, on the back), but the stitching is actually very finely done and almost invisible from the front.

                  It seems to me that yours looks older...

                  Very weird but yes, the truth is that one should be wary of two-of-the-same.

                      For what it's worth, I've been in touch with the seller and he says that he obtained 2 of these badges from the same house clearance.

                        Four months later.

                        They are now faking the black skull.

                        Here's the eBay link.................

                            Korrekt!

                                I noticed that as well.

                                I think the problem for the faker is that he has had to rely on the photos you and I posted.................he can't see the fine details that you can see when you actually have the badge in hand.
