    Customs is a more square wreath, and as mentioned the cords is a different color. I believe the wreath and cord are actually west german

    The interior of the cord knots, is the construction metal or plastic?

    Metal knots indicate wartime manufacture if I'm not mistaken

    The wreath is not TR, and does not fit any BRD pattern I am aware of.

    The green flecking should not be obscured by bullion.

    Metal knots were also used postwar. The set is postwar at best, and a repro at worst.
