    Default Edelweiss Cap Insignia - Authentic?

    I am looking through my collections and turning up some interesting stuff. Most of my interests have been centered in firearms and edged weapons, however I have been finding many other items that have been gathered over the years. This is one.

    Your opinions, please!

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Agree with Gunny. Looks to be authentic.

    It looks okay, but is it?
    Do not forget this Edelweiss form (and also all other forms) is
    heavily and above all perfectly faked, for example a Gustav
    Brehmer version with 41!

    One question, which disturbs me: why is the middle part not
    yellow colored as it should be (the prongs at the reverse also
    should have that color) and why has this form three prongs at
    the reverse? I know there exist flowers with three prongs, but
    these always then are yellow colored!
