    Hello everyone,
    I wanted to show this Auslands Organization political sleeve diamond. I've never seen one like it, and there's nothing to compare it to. Seller claims it to come from an old collection. I would love for it to be original, but would guess it to be a Delta fake? Anybody?

    Having never seen one before. I cannot offer an opinion on the materials, or construction, or authenticity. But one thing that does strike me as odd, is that the letters seem to be off centered on the vertical plane. That alone would raise a flag for me. Hopefully someone with more insight can comment. Best regards.

    I know they (AO raute/diamond) existed, for example there are fotos of Ernst-Wilhelm Bohle (head of the NSDAP/AO) and others with an AO raute on their uniform sleeves:

    (Cannot direct link to show this foto here but if one clicks on the URL there are several further examples to be seen, Bohle & unnamed NS parti member seated flanking Goebbels at an event)

    A Google image search for Ernst-Wilhelm Bohle brings up further examples so you might want to try that. There is also an example in color here (showing front & back), however I do not know if it is an original or perhaps a post war copy; the site owner @ German Daggers may have more insights on them:

    I have never handled one of these so cannot say if it is genuine or not. Hope this helps though.

    Thank you. I used GermanDaggers as a resource as well. NSDAP uniforms, has a nice example: Gau Auslands Organisation Tunic on uniform. The political brown seems to be a lot harder to find known examples. Most I find seem to be in 3 different fonts. Thanks again.

    I don't believe this one to be original, I'm afraid...
