    Don't tell me I've stumped the forum?
    Are these skijager pieces so shrouded in uncertainty that we just dont know what is correct and what is not? Should collectors give them a wide berth maybe?

    Hi all, I REALLY would like to know more about these critters. 20 of our finest regulars & mods ( with much knowledge ) have looked at the pictures without leaving a comment. Put me out of my misery someone please .........

    This is something that I have thought about I have not seen a picture with one of these in it ever. These pieces sure do have some age but who knows are these just something made up in the 60s

    Never held a real one in my collecting career. These are rare and I have never done any research into them.

    Cheers, Ade.

    From what I have read the regiments were raised mid 1944 and fought exclusively on the eastern front. Many think the cap badges were modified jager ones with a civilian ski soldered or pinned on, others think they never existed at all and these that turn up are all post war creations. I don't know myself but they have never made a faker rich and the quality seems fair. Just an unusual item that no one seems to have a definite view on.
    Thanks for giving your points of view.

    I have a couple of these badges one with the ski and one without they both have some sort of marking on them but don't know if the 100% or not picked them up for next to nothing so probably post war.

    I have seen a badge in one wartime pic in Brian L Davis' book. The guy wearing it was GFP.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Was this the photo Ade? ....... is it a ski jager badge or just jager? - too small to discern details.

    Then theres this one - has been colourized but dated 1944 near Pripyat, in the Ukraine
