    Default SS Bergführer cloth badge

    Hi guys... could I please have some expert opinions regarding the authenticity, or otherwise, of this SS Bergführer Mountain Troops Guide cloth badge. I have had it from the 1970's and recently found it again while clearing the attic. Also shown are SS Mountain Troops cap and tunic badges that were with it.
    Many thanks

    Hi Nick, thanks for the welcome.
    I have never seen another one to compare it to. Have only seen it in a couple of blurry period photographs and as an illustration in reference books. I have seen a few repros and fakes but they all lack the quality of this one, especially in the 'bergführer' lettering which has always been very thin and only a couple of threads thick in any of the fakes.
    Hopefully there'll be a few more comments and opinions.
