    You can find all informations on the first page of this thread.

    Behind, on the edge, you have dots and dashes (.I.I.I.I.I.I.I.I.) but it should be only dots. (............) and in the front the white line is too thick, we should see the sewing like sawtheeth (as you can see on the previous post of yours, with the Frundsberg cufftitle)

    (sorry for my english, I hope to be understood)

    Default Could I please get an opinion on these cuffs

    Hello all,
    long term collector but not in German WW2 field. Could I please ask for an opinion on these cuffs. From what I can gather the 'salt and pepper' pattern should be present on all original cuffs? These appear to have much more 'salt' than 'pepper'! Person selling told me they were purchased form a reputable militaria dealer here in Oz. I am looking at buying them if genuine.
    Thank you ,

    Hi Al, welcome!

    Glad you have asked before parting with hard earned cash. These are all bad.

    The "Bevo" style ones are the book mark fakes from the 1970's.

    The "HJ" Div title is bad too.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Excellent information. Not to push too hard for more experise Ade, but how about something on what distinguishes the more common and the more rare cuff titles and collar tabs?
