    Strange, in your pics they look to be on brown felted wool similar to that used on German tropical greatcoat rank patches and I think they are for the KM. Even the "highlight" stitching is the same as you see on the white tunic. Though a star is used as rank by most navies, only the Germans to my knowledge used this type of backing.

    Are they for sale?

    They are on thick brown/green wool. It reminded me of WWI US uniforms hence the reason I posted them in the Allied section. Maybe I'll ask a mod to move this for me.

    What era do these originate from WWII? Earlier? Later?

    Thanks in advance.

    I have to be honest and say I have never seen these before and the similarities with WWII German tropical insignia might just be coincidental, I really don't know the answer. Maybe they are WWI US insignia and hopefully someone can confirm that. Very interesting and I look forward to a firm answer being provided.
