Sorry, but I beg to differ with you on this. I do not believe that this example of a late war edelweiss is worth 10e!! You can purchase a mint uncut example on ebay all day long for $15.-$20. The example here has been cut and is not in its original configuration. It would have never been worn on a uniform. It is a bad example !!!! Invest your money insomething that is worth it.IMHO.
