    Default wierd cuff title ?

    This is a cuff title I picked up in the mid 60's and rediscovered a few days ago. If memory serves I picked this up from a vet who had it in a cigar box full of insignia.
    I didn't know what to make of it at the time and threw in back in the box.
    It appears to be a printed title with an iron on backing. It has been cut from a larger sheet of titles as the edges are irregular.
    Any thoughts would be appreciated.
    Thanks
    Steve

    Hi Steve. This looks like a repro/fake of that era. If you look at Ade's posts about cuff titles you will see what they are supposed to look like. Regards Thomas

    These printed cuff titles were sold by The Patch King and were already available in 1945. The Patch King had bought surplus US patches, during the war and after, and sold them, with optional albums, to children and adults through magazine and comic book ads. They were responsible for a few pieces of Third Reich clith reproductions from illustrations in the Organizationbuch der NSDAP.

    I am getting ready to move out of a house that I have lived in for 40 years and I am coming across things I have thrown aside years ago simply because I didn't have a clue as to their being good or not.
    I can't believe how much sh*t a person can accumulate over the years.

    I have not seen one of these cufftitles for years. Boy, does it bring back memories of my youth. Somewhere I saw a picture of a GI taken shortly after the war with a huge board full of patches and insignia, both American and German. In the middle were several of these fake cufftitles. They were not very good. Who knew in 1946!
