    For me, it is a copy.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Ade...so far I've gotten one thumbs up and your thumbs down. May I ask what you don't like about it? I am really new to WWII cloth items and want to get a better handle on how to judge them.

    Thanks,
    Ed

    Hi Ed, take a look at the mishapen swastika and the backing paper. These are not good signs.

    Fire Police did not wear gilt insignia. Regular German Police Officers wore silver sleeve eagles. This would be for a Police General.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Not one I would want in my collection. Here is a well worn original just for a comparison. The details are much better and this is just an officers eagle. I would expect an officers to be very high quality.
