    THanks guys. I thought the glue was a bad sign. The seller is asking 160 euros for this, which I thought was cheap actually. Collecting mainly German stuff you get a bit desensitised to prices it seems. He had a German helmet too that was a bit messed with, I'm going to pass on both items I think, thanks again for the assist. Much appreciated.

    Maybe in the UK prices are higher for IJA items but IMHO that is awfully high....and the insignia are bad to boot. I can look for one here in the US if you are interested. Haven't seen one in a while in my admittedly smallish circle of sources but they do pop up occasionally

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Here are some original collar tabs I own - for comparison......

    Note the stitching - the upper thread ( needle ) is red and the bottom ( bobbin ) is khaki green.

    Cheers, Dan

    Oops - just realised I had the tabs upside down when I took the photo
