    Nothing wrong with it except it is the type that is claimed to have never been issued during the war and was only found unissued after the war ended.

    Here's Rommel shaking von Sponeks hand with one sewn to his greatcoat. Not sure I understand the point about them not being issued....what type is that?

    The issue version has a greenish backing while this type has a tan backing, otherwise they are the same.

    Sometimes the edging was folded over like bevo insignia.

    D. Bunch and the DAK guru's that did the big book must have thought the tan ones valid....? Even Dal Mcguirk features a tan one in his book.

    They are original but are said to have never been issued, certainly not in Afrika as far as I am aware.
