    Hi Sean, it is original and a good item to own. Officers quality flatwire. Worn on the Feldmutze Alter Art. (Crusher in postwar US collectors terminology)

    Here is a similar, but not identical version, seen on a cap from my collection. (Ignore the eagle)

    Cheers, Ade.

    Agree, insignia for the feldmutze alte art (old style), otherwise known as a crusher. For Heer officer.

    Hello,
    That's right, this insignia is for the Feldmütze Alter art...
    Ade, the eagle sewn to you example looks really weird...looks like a bad one in fact...(sorry)
    Thanks

    Hi, yes, I just looked at the eagle on Ade's crusher, that is surely a fake. Just about everything looks wrong with it. Copied badly from a tunic eagle, by the look of it.
