    Default 11 Panzer Division's Insignia, not the 7th.

    Greetings,

    I cannot comment on the originality of the piece being contemporary to WWII, but the insignia shown is of the 11 Panzer Division, not the 7th.

    Hi, Lance is correct.

    I like it.

    Never seen another, which is a good sign, as fakes tend to come in some kind of quantity.

    I expect it came from Robert. He usually has good items.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Given the adoption of the tactical symbol during the war and then wartime metal use restrictions I would agree with you Paul.

    I think that is the correct id.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Default Here's a large 1980s era 11 PZ DIV veteran's organization sticker for comparison.

    Greetings,

    Thought I'd post a comparative shot of a large veteran's sticker from the 1980s and your plaque. There are similarities and differences in the designs, either case, I thought you'd might enjoy seeing a confirmed modern image too.

    Regards,

    Lance
