I think you should ask for a refund, friend...I thought he was guarded by LW-Personnel- and I notice there's no Blood-Type...(?)

Thanks for your answer.
I have read that the military unit was formed on 25.01.1945.
On the back blood type "A" barely visible.
The Unit organization as I understand it:
Formed 25.1.45. Consisted of 7 companies:
So the second company should be flak.
Eike41 Thanks for your answer. It also corresponds to what I had read.
I'm interested to find if there are false similar, but so far my search has been negative.
I have bought this erkennungsmarke in a famous specialty store in German militaria WW2 selling on the internet.
I think it's also possible that from January 1945 onwards, given the course of the war, there was a bit of confusion.
If this was any kind of line unit or signals I would tend to agree with you. The fact that it is a very small and special unit makes me think it is a mistake by a forger not a "field" mistake. There were not many men in each of these companies less than 250 that kind of mistake on roll number 8 is difficult for me to believe without provenance.
