    Hi there. Could I please have a few more opinions on this Krim shield? To me it looks ok, it has the 6 towns marked, the line on each feather is present and it has the notch under the wreath. It's just the backing that I haven't seen before. It's green like the Heer is supposed to be but I've never seen one this green before. I've been after a shield like this ever since I read 'In deadly combat' and read what these soldats went through. Hopefully I'm right and it's a good one! Many thanks for looking. Jay.

    Jay..i like this shield but what is the material on the back?...is it paper or what...maybe this was added for some type of reinforcement of the original backing?,,,

    It almost looks like book binding tape. I would say it's been post war added, to stop the shield from coming apart. In the end though, the shield looks good, and the cloth is there.
