    Default KRETA cufftitle

    I have a few of these already but Im curious as to one comment a couple of months back asto that there was a stack of these found some years ago (apparantly rodents had gotten the best of the pile of cufftitles). Ive noticed that many of the cufftitles show wear (and tear on exactly the same area) NAMELY IN THE LOWER BOTTOM AREA OF THE "KRETA" part. Is this a coinsidence or was the stack a really big one with rodents going for the same part of the cufftitle? Ive enclosed pictures of an apparently original armband for sale in Finland at the moment.

    I would assume that something was spilled on that area amongst the stack or possibly it was dried blood ???

    You can rest easy. It is original.

    I saw the complete stack of these when they were first found in Poland.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Jan, I could not tell you how many there were, but the stack was at least 30cm thick.

    Cheers, Ade.
