    Default Found these German Patches in my storage, questions?

    Like the titles says. I found these while cleaning out my storage. They were given to me years ago by a friend of the family. Could someone help me identify these patches and maybe help me place worth? I am in university and money is so tight, I feel that someone would be happier to own these than myself.

    One thing I do know about is the SS patch which was designed for the soldiers running the concentration camps. However, I have seen photos of others and fear that it is a fake or mis print? can anyone confirm or deny this?

    I would appreciate any helping hands!

    I believe the trapezoid patch is for Panzer, and does look like it may be fake.........

    Let me try - left to right. The Luftwaffe issued specialists patches. This one is for Flak personnel and it was awarded for nine months service. Just below it is the Luftwaffe Gefreiter (Corporal) rank insignia. It has something attached to it but I cannot make it out. It was added by someone and not likely official. The SS patch is for a cap but once again the photo is too fuzzy to make out details. They are on top of a printed NS armband. Other viewers will no doubt ask for better photos. Value on the LW items would be in the $70 and $25 range I think. I will leave it to others to provide details on the SS and NS items. NH

    Could be a trap from the SS 'Picasso' division I suppose?
