    I am one of those 117 .I would like to see pictures of the back.I am not a expert at all on thoses patches but would say fake. the black material looks like jeans quality.

    fresh pics as promised i wont cry if its bad i only paid about 5 dollars but it looked good in reference to the one in cammo unifroms of the waffen ss and t omy untrained eye i noticed that there was a material patch of this kind in the book i burnt a strand of the thread and it burnted like cotton should and i have no idea if thats good or bad either especially as germany was beginning to play with synthetics for unifroms

    The printed rank insignia are done on a finely ribbed silky rayon material. They are silk screened.

    The machine embroidered piece does not engender feelings of authenticity. The leaves are far more pointed than I have seen on known originals.

    thanks bob i knew the embroidered one was a fake for deff but wasnt sure with the other it is soft material but i dont think its rayon wouldnt that melt if the burn test is applied? i heavily lightened the picture with my pc to actually try and show the weave its as black as the front and well if its fake its fake still worth a fiver to stick on my fake ss oakleaf parka

    The printed example looks OK. Rayon is cellulose, made from wood pulp, so it burns and does not melt.
