    I cannot say I have heard of this variant?

    The construction and embroidery look OK, but I would honestly only buy a "textbook" camel hair cloth version.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hello,
    It is the first time i see this variant and i don't know what to think. Adrian is right here, embroidery and construction looks very good...some authors mention the existence of such a type....
    Thanks

    Philip , i have also seen another one of these advertised on a well known dealer site which also says that these versions are more rarer / scarce than the 'camel hair ' ones ! , so not sure what too make of it really

    The terms like "rare variation" etc are usually a sales pitch and are often used to try and sell non standard items.

    I honestly would stick to the accepted standard issue camel hair pattern. Should you ever wish to sell in the future, "textbook" items move quicker and will be a much better investment.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I partially agree with Adrian concerning the "rare variation" comment, but what else to write than "rare variant" when you sell one rare regulation item like a carbon spotted Zeltbahn or a tan folding shovel carrier...?
    Sometimes it's true and the item is indeed a rare variant.....
    Thanks


    ps : my Afrika cufftitle is the camel hair type...

    Thanks again Ade & JPhilip for your comments & advice , as this is so far my only Afrika Cuff i am not upto speed with all the different types/variants , but i am pleased with this one . Are the 'camel hair' ones the most common ones ? also what about the Afrikacorps ones ?

    Hi, yes, the camel hair one is the conventional issue. Here is mine.

    The "Afrikakorps" title is a completely different thing. This is a formation title and not an award like the former.

    Cheers, Ade.
