    Belgian Wallonien SS Arm Shield

    I know these are bitterly rare, so in all honesty I've never seen a real one before. So this one could be the real deal and I wouldn't even know it.

    Photos attached of one that is purportedly the real thing.

    Yours is a modern copy.

    Indeed, Bob is correct.

    The weave & backing colour is incorrect.

    But note the letter "A". In an original, this should be slightly taller than all the other letters in the word. Make a mental note of this one feature.

    Cheers, Ade.

    This is an original Wallonie shield. As Ade said, notice the weave pattern and the large letter A.
