Afrika Korps palm

Article about: Just a question about the Afrika Korps. Is there any record of anything with a Palm tree and swastika on it? I know that on helmets it's a fantasy but what about patches or pins?

    There is some debate about the existence of a hand made cap version of the palm & swaz, but if there is such a patch, any originals are very few in number.

    Fakes of this patch do exist.

    You also get a pin badge version of this which is a post war fantasy item.

    These pins are for veteran organization of DAK. Just like commemorative rings, plates and other items. None of them has of course swastika.
