    Hi AKbear

    Your patch is the rank of an army senior private, eg: Oberschutze, Obergrenadier etc. It was worn on the left arm roughly midpoint between elbow and shoulder.

    Whether it is genuine or not, I couldnot say, other, more knowledgeable people than me will have to say so.

    Hope this is of some help mate.

    Regards etc.

    That explains a lot, thanks Jimpy. I wonder if it is fake or not and if it is from DAK? Those who can tell please let me know
    thanks

    Hi, AKbear !

    It is what Jimpy says, and normally referred to as a 'pip'.

    The colour does seem right for the desert...........

    Do colors matter, meaning do certain colors mean things?
    Thanks

    Different colours usually tell what branch - blue background = Navy, etc....
    Typically, tan material is desert or AK colour, and considering the locale you
    picked it up from...........

    Others more knowledgeable will give you a better idea..................... !

    Thanks Steve, but the color doesn't look right for DAK? Do you think it is a fake?

    AKbear, It could also just be faded or sun-bleached.
    I'm not really sure about it's being genuine or not.

    Let others have a crack at it.................!

    Hello,
    That's right, it's an Oberschutze/Obergrenadier arm rank insignia for the off-white Drillich tunic...it's not sun faded, but brand new...
    Thanks

    Hi, this is correct, its for the HBT fatigue tunic and they are not specifically for the DAK, in fact its more likely to have been used in Europe or the eastern front or Italy. It looks to be an original ww2 item, IMO.
