    NAZI GOLD IN TEXAS!!!

    WOW, can you imagine the look on my face when I dug this up at over a foot deep, in a River in the heart of Texas!!! the fist pictures show it right as I dug it up. and then cleaned up. I have no idea if it is a real piece of S.S. Nazi Germany jewelry. But it is cool. It test at 9kt, So I did find Nazi Gold in Texas. I Think?

    They called it "Totenkopf" or "death man's head"

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Totenkopf

    Third Reich

    Junkers Ju 88 of Kampfgeschwader 54 (KG 54) in France, November 1940
    In the early days of the NSDAP, Julius Schreck, the leader of the Stabswache (Adolf Hitler's bodyguard unit), adopted the Totenkopf to his unit. This later grew into the Schutzstaffel (SS), which continued to use the Totenkopf as insignia throughout its history.
    The Totenkopf was also used as the unit insignia of the Panzer forces of the German Heer (Army) during the Third Reich era, and also by the Panzer units of the Luftwaffe, including those of the elite Fallschirm-Panzerdivision HG.[4]
    Both the 3rd SS Panzer Division of the Waffen-SS, and the World War II era Luftwaffe's 54th Bomber Wing Kampfgeschwader 54 were given the unit name "Totenkopf", and used virtually the same graphic skull-crossbones insignia as the SS units of the same name.

    Very cool find

    Definitely a death head fob. Interestingly it is only 9K. You would think that being elite units they would have had a higher Karat. Most of their dress items are highly decorated. Nice find!

    Re: NAZI GOLD IN TEXAS!!!

    If you do a little research, you'll find that the script is totally wrong for the SS on that fob. I sincerely doubt its real; it's a copy at best.

    Re: NAZI GOLD IN TEXAS!!!

    Yes the script is not exact as on other SS items i have seen. but it is OLD. you never know. what its history is. I know that it will be kept in my collections as one of the top "ODD" items I have found... As for location it was found in a small stream outside of San Antonio about 35 Miles North.

    I agree. But if it's gold, I would care less if it was real NAZI garb. It's probably from a biker gang.

    The Nazi totenkopf and rune SS look like this:
