    Ade, i was reading a thread you posted on these, and you said that the originals never had the "A" and the "F" touching lower corners, that there should be a space in between. They touch on the second cuff title i posted.

    Thanks Ade and Cory for all your help with these !!!!!!! As stated above, i am a little concerned about the "A" and "F" touching, but you both looked at the pics and liked it....so i bought it, the seller is actually a friend of the owner of Time Traveler, he just had some of his items listed on Time Traveler.

    Touching A&F is OK: it is when that actually merge together that they are bad.

    Thanks Ade! I guess there is an extremely fine line from touching to actually merging! My untrained eyes will eventually learn the difference! I am sure you looked at the pics of the second cuff title after i posted , it does show a close up of the "A" and "F" corners, to me they look merging...... but i definitely trust your eyes and judgements !!!!! Thanks again for all the help!

    No, i actually found this one on ebay... i know, i know, but it was listed by a friend of the owner of Time Traveler militaria, this cuff title was actually being sold on Time Traveler also, the pics are from Time travelers site. It has a money back policy and a 100% original, pre 1945 clause..... so i feel pretty comfortable with the purchase. Plus Ade backs it up too, thanks again Ade !!!!

    Hello there,

    Both are fine originals. On a side note, a member suggested that you smell the one to determine age. I must admit this is about the first thing I do when I come across any new piece of insignia for my collection. Be careful though, as musty smell on the surface doesn't automatically suggest authenticity; fakers will often put their reproduction cloth in between musty old jackets to soak up their smell and fool unsuspecting collectors.
