    Default Ärmelband Kreta: Original or Fake ?

    I bought this one a few years ago
    The description was the following:

    A WW2 GERMAN FALLECHIRMJAGER CUFF BAND , ITS BEEN CUT OFF THE SLEEVE OF A SUMMER SHIRT / TUNIC , AND MOUNTED IN A FRAME , THE FRAME IS OLD TYPE AND THE PAPER BACKING HAS DATED OF DEATHS FROM 1943 AND ARTICLES FROM THAT PERIOD . ITS BEEN IN A OLD MUSEAUM AND I PICKED IT UP IN A ANTIQUE SHOP , IT HAS A CARD IN IN FROM TYPE WRIGHTER SAYING GERMAN SLEEVE BADGE AND PART UNIFORM FROM WAR TIME ERA

    I tested both the cuff title and the sleeve,they do not glow and they burn good

    I would like to have your opinions on this

    Sorry I don't like the materials or the construction, especialy how it is woven on the back and how the edging braid is set off the edge of the title.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Sorry Spyros, and I understand exactly how you feel.

    I will have to take a pic of the back for you to show you the construction.

    Cheers, Ade.

    A sneaky way of making a post war copy appear to be an original. As Ade posted, nothing right about this one.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    As it is dark outside here, I have taken a scan of the back for you.

    It shows the detail to the embroidery well.

    Cheers, Ade.
