    Default SS Cufftitle collection: opinions please

    Hello Group, Can anyone comment on this collection of cufftitles? The horizontal bands are made of seven strands of wire. The lettering is made from a fabric thread. Any thoughts on authenticity and approximate value? Thanks in advance for your help!

    The collector's guild website has many authentic cuff titles as a means of comparison to what appears here, none of which is authentic.

    I will jump in and say all are post war coppies and agree with the other comments.

    All appear to be from the hand of the same faker.

    Indeed, I thought the same thing too Bob.

    Again, I should add that the "Theodore Eicke" cuff title was only made in "Bevo" machine woven format and never in an RZM machine embroidered style. In fact, I am fairly certain the same goes for "Landsturm Nederland"..

    Cheers, Ade.

    Sadly, all are post-war copies.

    It's astonishing to me that the RZM tags and the seven-strand wire borders can look so good (to my eye, when compared to originals that I see on Collector's Guild) yet the faker of these couldn't get the font right on the front!
    It's clear to me now that these are fakes but, I have to admit, I was surprised to realize that.
    Thanks for all of your input!
