SS Mountain Troops cap edelweiss?

Article about: I saw metallic edelweiss 50e for sale. Do you think it would have been a good deal? I'm pretty sure it was original.

    Default SS Mountain Troops cap edelweiss?

    I bought this off ebay a while back. I've see pictures of SS cloth edelweiss for the M43 and for some reason the petals look different. Is it fake? I've also tested it under black light for new fibers and all thread and cloth are organic.

    I have not seen one like that before I would be concerned at the lack of detail.

    Here is mine

    Sorry it is a fake. The back is totally incorrect. It should not have this white backing for the embroidery. Actually, without being facetious, the front is wrong too. Compare to Nick's example.

    Cheers, Ade.

    it seems odd that they wouldn't make a fake look more like the real thing, i put it under the black light and all fibers are pre synthetic. paid $10 for it not too much of a loss.
