    Default ─rmelband Afrika - fake or genuine?

    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.

    Nice looking Cuff title but I'm not convinced that it is pre 1945.
    I have seen a few of these produced post war for veteran meetings.

    Not for my collection I'm afraid
    All the best

    Do a forum search, all you need to know regarding this cuff title is there.

    That is correct. In 10 pages of links to the Afrika Armelband there is not a single genuine one that matches yours. That alone should tell you something.
