Panzer Skull

Not exclusively a tropical item but seen widely in Afrika too.

This example is made of zinc and it is a ground dug relic.

Cheers

Way cool, Chris! The way the upper pin is broken off, it makes the remainder look like a dagger blade stuck through the skull. big_smile

Hi Chris

Yours looks to be a later style with those prongs. Here is one of mine, an early one taken in Afrika attached to a worn AKCT. Lets see some more members Totenkopf's on tunics or not...?

cheers
Tim

Re: Panzer Skull

First one is an early skull, heart nose pattern, made of aluminum and both prongs are cut.

Re: Panzer Skull

And this one also an early example, big nose pattern, made of aluminum. It's a relic with one and a half prong.

Re: Panzer Skull

Nice tk's, there are so may variations on these. Think everyone should post one or two up and we will have quite a data base of them eventually. Here are a couple attached to HG wraps mid war, the lower one is a fake tk & tab.
