"In all my years as a soldier, I have never seen men fight so hard." - SS Obergruppenfuhrer Wilhelm Bittrich - Arnhem
Yes it is original and if it's cheap then it's double pleasure...
The gold center part looks brand new compared to the rest..
"I didn't use any weapon in combat during the war, but i killed hundreds, perhaps thousands of men...they're now at the bottom of the sea"
Walter Borg (ex-MI6) Agent and radio operator in Malta, Tunisia and Italy between 1941 and 1945. Arrested twice, tortured twice, escaped twice, survived the war...

Excellent ! thanks all for the advice .
I am now in the possession of 1 x Edelweiss Cap Badge !
The center doesn't look that "new" in the flesh , it is pretty good though .
Fits nicely in the lower box !
A nice piece!....
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
I'm Spartacus, not really i'm Paul!...
Nice acquisition of a fine authentic Edelweiss. Well done and, apparently, at a bargain, no less!
