    Could be a cut down cuff title used by the HG troops.
    I used to have an 'AFRIKA' cuff title in the same blue material. It was for Luftwaffe in north afrika.
    Can we get an idea of the size?

    I think it's ok. These were often cut-down by vets. The Afrika one I had was also cut-down. I actually passed on a Reinhard Heydrich CT tha was as well. It was $800 .

    would it have much value do you think . I'm happy with it because Luftwaffe is something I collect when I come by it ... which is not very often where i'm located

    This was a bargain, indeed! These aren't found everyday. I think you did good and the CT is still valuable, IMO .

    By the way Matthew, I like the leather mantel in your avatar. It's the the double breasted variation. Mine is single.

    Sorry it is not original. The overall mesh cloth backing is incorrect and it is over sized.

    I have shown an original on the forum.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Okay, I see what you mean now, Ade. I guess I was a bit optimistic. I was having trouble determining the size as well.

    It has no chance, sorry.

    I gave up trying to second guess fakers many years ago now. They do the most stupid things.......

    To fold the material correctly to form the cuff title would be impossible due to the thinkness of the material. There are additional problems to those I originally listed too. Look at the letters "M" and the last "G".

    Cheers, Ade.
