Questionable SS insignia
These two items were acquired in a lot and I am not certain of whether they are good or bad. I am thinking the sleeve eagle is a bowling pin fake. As for the Edelweiss I dont know what to think. Any opinions greatly appreciated.

Steve, wait for some of our learned cloth experts to contribute but yes, the adler does appear to resemble the "bowling pin" fake. See this thread, it should assist:
SS sleeve eagle
Currently working on several KZ related projects, including items for the USHMM, Groß-Rosen Museum and various private concerns and studies. Available as a guide to KZ sites, contact for details.

Both items are crap - sorry to say.
