Value of these 2 DAK armbands

Article about: My Afrika cuff looks quite new on the inside also which is why I bought it. Are you suggesting it is a fake also?

    Default Value of these 2 DAK armbands

    Hi all.
    What value would you put on these two armbands?
    Looking on dealer sites they vary a lot in prices etc.
    I would like to pay a fair price to the owner as a lot of the stuff he has is fake junk I,m trying to sort the good from the bad.
    Thanks to all Peter

    Hi Bob thanks for your help on armbands etc.
    I posted the dak items a few weeks back and they were given the thumbs up so I just wanted to give the owner a good fair price for them....I,m pretty sure they are good ones as the centers in the o and the p hav correct dimensions for been orginal etc.
    Adrian posted some useful info on the traits of the faked ones.

    Afrikakorps is as you state junk IMHO as it has the tartan weave backing behind the letters, but the Afrika with palms looks to be OK.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    I like the front look of your Afrika Korps cufftitle but i don't know about the back. (and by 'i don't know' i mean ' i don't know' and not 'i don't like it')
    I have no idea about the AFRIKA cufftitle though!

    I agree with Jerry regarding the Afrikakorps. The back looks bad and in the obverse the A is merging with F whilst they shouldn't.
    About the Afrika, i have no idea.

    The Afrika looks OK to me too, here is my example for comparison. Straight off the bat I don't see any red flags. I think I paid around USD$450 for mine.

    I have marked the red flags based on what i have learned from Ade's thread regarding the Afrikakorps cufftitle.

    I see the "diamond" behind the letter O in Afrikakorps, heard that all of them had the "diamond" are fake. And the Afrika looks strange to me on the reverse side, just looks to new. That is my option
