    Sorry to be a pain, but could you please run your eye over these pieces and tell me if they are genuine or not. Thanks.
    I don't think the Luftwaffe Drivers badge is good and the collar tabs have me worried because I thought this type was stitched directly to the collar of the tunic??

    Hi Tom, the drivers badge is different to many originals I have seen of a given issue style. But this one appears to be quite well made. I would say it is OK?

    The collar tabs I am unsure about and I would pass on these if offered to me.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Greetings All,

    That Luftwaffe drivers badge is an awesome tailor made piece. Nice collectable. The tabs make me wonder though. They are the mid-war style of generic tabs that have had a dark/medium green stitch sewn on them to represent mountain or Jaeger waffenfarbe. This looks non period done! The folding of the tabs is also not in a typical period style. IMHO.

    Does the bottom left hand corner of the badge not look to you guys as if it has been repaired at some stage?

    I dont know anything about 3rd Reich militaria but the collar tabs just look to new and the green in them looks bad.
