    You could throw it away, but you could also keep it for future reference. Learning details, etc. Just my opinion

    Corrected your thread title and moved it here. Deleted the other one.

    Sorry, Ned is correct.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi guys!

    I became this Afrika cuff title along other orders & decorations from a friend (EK2, Afrika medal, Wound Badge).

    These medals are original without a doubt but no one was able to proof the cuff title by 100%. Some say "yep it is" other say "no way".

    UV lamp test is negative. No reaction. Material will be silk, I think.
    Maybe it's something uncommon and rare?

    I hope the photos are good enough to take a decision.

    Thanks a lot.

    I have understood that only the base made ​​of camel's hair ...

    Regards,

    Some say that there is another version made of silk. That's why I'm asking for a proof.

    Its actually an award..... for 6th months service or WIA in the African campaign. I was always told that the front should be smooth and mohair soft with a cotton backing and if the palm trees looked like "starfish on sticks" give it a wide berth!!!!
