View Poll Results: I believe the main reason collectors are not interested in FJ sleevebands is
Cost: Once they broke 1500 many people lost interest 139 37.67%
Fakes: Reproductions are too good. Most cannot tell good from bad. 182 49.32%
Look: Just do not find them appealing 14 3.79%
Information: Not enough information available as to when/why they were worn, etc. 8 2.17%
Not a combat related award 16 4.34%
Photographic evidence: Rarely ever see photographs of the bands in wear. 10 2.71%
Voters: 369. You may not vote on this poll

I can tell you guys about a conversation some collector friends and I had. We were talking about cuff titles and if we thought they were worth the money they bring. Now we were talking about cuff titles in general not just FJ bands. The just of it was for the money you can find so many other items. Myself I would spend my money on a nice tunic dagger or helmet over a cuff title any day. Don't get me wrong we all said we liked them and could see the draw to them. But besides the fakes and the big prices they just don't seem to speak to me like other items do.

for me cuffs are interesting but not that much as the other medals or badges - except of military campaign one!

I still have all my cufftitles, and enjoy them more than most awards. They represent the early FJ regiments, and that makes them significant IMO.

However, I see them at shows with little interest from most.

Hello Willi,
I am here your opinion!
I also appreciate my cufftitles
more than some medals.
and it's harder to get good cufftitles than a jumper badge

Do you think the lack of interest is due in part because of the killer fakes out there. They scare me. Jim

No Jim, IMO the fakes are not that good. We have good references now regarding what "textbook" CTs are. At the recent SOS I had a FJR1 EM CT, and NO ONE even asked about the price...

That's sad. The FJ CTs are beautiful.

But not all the Army ones are desirable either. The GD CTs seem to sell in part because the prices aren't through the roof and because the unit had a great fighting record. Jim

I too enjoy my few cuffs, all part of FJ-estates. Here is the latest addition.

Best, Peter
