    Default Afrika Korps Cuff Title.......sorry

    Saw this in an antique shop in the summer last year, looked at it, went back looked again, looked at the sticky and decided that I still wasn't sure and 58 was a lot of money if not sure. I took pictures and thought I'd put them up here, then I forgot. My sister rang today and the same cuff title is still there, same price. What I'm wondering is is it still there because it's too expensive or because it's not O.K?Click image for larger version.

    Cheers, I thought it wasn't O.K. it's nice to know my gut instinct was correct. It's in one of those antique centres where folk have a case with their stuff in. The guy who has this particular case has loads of militaria some looks O.K. but a lot seems too good to be true.

    Jerry is correct of course. But please read my pinned thread on the subject.

    Cheers, Ade.

    A 100% nice cuff title for reenactors, but not for collectors

    And this is the thread that Ade mentioned above: http://www.warrelics.eu/forum/heer-l...uff-title-804/

    Where is a good place to find honest items? I wouldn't be happy on line shopping as I'd like to examine what I buy, would somewhere like the big fair at Stoneleigh be better? Everyone on here is really helpful but you must get fed up of us newbies constantly asking about items that are either obviously fake or real.

    Does the dealer in the Sidmouth Antique Centre know that his cuff title is duff or is trying to pass off a fake, it's all very complicated.

    Dont take this wrong but if you had doubts on this "hands on "piece and you had to ask about it, why would you like to buy "hands on" to examine a piece if you dont have the expertise???

    My advice, buy online from a highly recommended seller and prior to that, ask for the opinions of everyone here

    Cheers for the advice, I appreciate your knowledge. The reason I asked was because although I had hands on and had read the sticky I still wasn't 100%. The fact that 6 months later it's still there suggested that I was correct and it was duff but I just needed to know for sure. The next one I see I'll have a little bit more confidence.

    Thanks you're all wonderful.
