    Bogus, Chief... Unless there is a CT out there that I have NEVER seen in any of Mollo's, Hayes, Soldat, or any other reference book I completely missed... Never seen this in actual use, nor is it any where close to period originals I have seen and studied...

    Hello Warren,

    This cufftile is painted on a piece of material. This is definitely not a construction method used during the third reich.

    This dealer saw you coming. Is there any way you can return these items??

    Looks like it's come from a film wardrobe department!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Ridiculous. Whoever spent money on this lacks even basic knowledge of German Cuff-titles...
    One-looker fake...

    Fred, he's a dealer and long-time friend...but knew nothing about this material.

    I was the instigator of the sale, and have no one else to blame.

    I will, certainly, discuss this stuff in our next contact, but not with any idea of monetary recovery.

    The most (hopefully) valuable of the batch hasn't been shown here yet; several books of obvious vintage and originality.

    I'll post them pretty soon. wlw

    Right on, Glenn: That's me! I didn't even know what they were called. I accept your ridicule without rancor.
