    Default HJ & Gebirgsjäger Insignia Convolute - Original ?

    Hi Gentlemen,
    Last week I bought a mainly cloth insignia convolute, roughly half of which is HJ insignia, the other half comprised of Gebirgsjäger & Rad insignia. (1) Orange Ribbon (2) 2x Edelweiss metal Cap Badges (left one is a fake) (3) RAD Sports Patch (4) Gebirgsjäger Arm Patch (5) Eagle Cap Badge (6) HJ Cap Diamond (7) Deutshes Jungvolk RunePatch, (8) 3x BDM triangle patches Ost Wartheland, Süd hochland, Süd Schwaben, compared the pieces to examples on the forum & Weitze's site, they seem genuine if ordinary pieces, although the DBM Wartheland patch appears to be one of the rarer patches. Would members agree, on the originality of the pieces and the rarity of the Ost Wartheland Patch.Any information welcome.
    Regards

    From the images, all of the insignia appear to be period original.

    Sorry. Maybe i didnt point it correct. ONLY the left of both Edelweis is present German Bundeswehr. The right one is Wehrmacht. With (2) i meant only the numbering, AlecH used.

    Hi Peter
    It could be my fading eyesight but both look Bundeswehr. The stems at the bottom are both facing the opposite ways to the GJ Edelweiss.

    @ stickgrenade. We both talking about the two metal cap insignias? The left one is Bundeswehr. The right one is Wehrmacht. You can see the difference in the petal. For Bundeswehr the right petal is pointing inside, for Wehrmacht the right petal is pointing outside.

    Here are two pictures showing the cap insignia.
