Yes, it looks like a very nice, authentic first pattern "DF" cuff title.
Hi, and welcome to the forum! And Happy New Year too!
I have taken the liberty of adding two images from the site to your post. Adding links is fine, but please if possible add an image too. Links tend to die over time: by adding an image this makes the thread useful for reference in the future.
Looks like a very nice one

Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

Nice, not a common one for sure.
Thank you all. This item is being sold by Bill Rannow. Can anyone vouch for his reputation? Is he a good militaria dealer to buy from?
I have not dealt with him personally, but I have not heard of any problems. I think he is reputable by all accounts.
I know Bill personally and he is a good, honest dealer. The cuff title is 100% authentic, so no worries.
Could someone provide a link to Bill Rannow's website, please.
