    More good news! So, the quality of the embroidery is not enough to prove an item is fake but speaks more of the embroiders' skills.

    Also, regarding the "houndstooth", I saw a "Deutschland" cuff title with this model on what seems to be a very reputable dealer's website.

    I would like to thank Mr. Delich and Mr. Berthold for their efforts.

ID:	669877Here is a nice example of hand embroidered. I didn't think anyone would mind seeing the other two rare items.

    Found with it's tags intact. I know the name of the TK Soldaten who bought it, but never applied it. I also have the hand embroidered one he wore, but no tags, just chopped ends. In fact, all 3 Bands in the above picture belonged to him.

    Very interesting. These are new examples for me. The variety of styles sure makes determining authenticity a real challenge...

    The two last ones are not made handembroided but with machine, that's why these are more "known" examples.
    Kind Regards,

    No, thank you F-B for all the wonderful items of your own and Herr Delich's Collection that you have posted. I particularly enjoyed the RZM Tag Thread. A real Treasure Trove for those who are fascinated by such things.

    Dear Colleague, thanks. We would all be lost without Delich's fine role in our common interest. His generosity is legion.
    The RZM tag is a hobby horse of mine, so am glad you find it of use.
    damit, basta.
